Description: 1 sheet [1 pg.]; 22 cm. x 24 cm. (broadside).


The December 1805 Assembly received a series of petitions from Lynchburg-area residents asking for the construction of additional tobacco inspection warehouses there; all of those petitions named sites owned by specific individuals; the House of Delegates received this request for a warehouse on the land of John Lynch on December 6, 1805; they combined the plan with a like petition naming James Martin (1805.059) as part of "An Act establishing certain Public Warehouses in the Town of Lynchburg" (Chap. XVIII of Acts of December 1805 Assembly) on December 31, 1805, designating it as the Liberty Warehouse. Item lacks colophon; given local interest, this item undoubtedly issued in Lynchburg; the only press working there after February 1805 was that of James Graham, so the attribution here.
