1805.066: Petition seeking Ferry on the Elizabeth River at Norfolk.

Published: 1805

Full Title: To the Speaker and Members of the House of Delegates ... inhabitants of the county of Norfolk ...

Author: Inhabitants of the County of Norfolk.

Place Issued: Norfolk

Issuing Press: Uncertain

Description: 1 sheet [1 pg.]; 48 cm. x 27 cm. (broadside).


Petitioners asked for a new ferry on the Elizabeth River under the control of the Norfolk Borough Hustings Court; the Assembly declined to act on the request during this session. 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.
