Author: Inhabitants of the City of Richmond.

Place Issued: Richmond

Issuing Press: Uncertain

Description: 1 sheet [1 pg.]; 35 cm. x 20 cm. (broadside).


Petitioners ask that city elections be held annually; only known copy in the state archives at the Library of Virginia has manuscript notation of December 8, 1802, indicating the date it was presented to the House of Delegates; however no changes were made to the city's charter in this regard in the December 1803 Assembly. Sheet lacks colophon; clearly a Richmond title, but the issuing press cannot be determined.
