1805.068: Petition seeking Police Force in Norfolk.

Published: 1805

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.]; 22 cm. x 26 cm. (broadside).


Petitioners asked for an act authorizing creation of a "systematic police force" in Norfolk; the Assembly declined to act on the request. 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.
