1805.064: Petition seeking Changes in Norfolk Borough Charter.
Full Title: To the Speaker and Members of the House of Delegates ... inhabitants of the borough of Norfolk ...
Author: Inhabitants of the Borough of Norfolk.
Place Issued: Norfolk
Issuing Press: Uncertain
Description: 1 sheet [1 pg.]; 23 cm. x 26 cm. (broadside).
Petitioners asked for annual election of the then appointed Mayor and compensation for the Mayor and Alderman from the public coffers; the Assembly agreed to the salary request as a provision in a revenue bill unrelated to the borough charter. Sheet lacks colophon; undoubtedly a Norfolk-issued imprint, but the multiplicity of presses then operating there precludes an attribution to any specific one without further evidence.
