1806.064: Petition seeking Lottery to support the Norfolk Academy.

Published: 1806

Full Title: To the honorable the Senate and House of Delegates ... the trustees of Norfolk Academy and a number of inhabitants of the borough of Norfolk ...

Author: Sundry Inhabitants of Norfolk.

Place Issued: Norfolk

Issuing Press: Uncertain

Description: 1 sheet [1 pg.]; 34 cm. x 21 cm. (broadside).


Only surviving copy, held in the state archives at the Library of Virginia, has a manuscript date of December 6, 1806, reflecting the date it was submitted to the Assembly; the petition was rejected that same day, as had become standard practice with private lottery requests. Sheet lacks colophon; while evidently a Norfolk imprint, item does not indicate the particular press issuing this sheet, so the indeterminacy here.
