Description: 1 sheet [1 pg.]; 31 cm. x 18 cm. (broadside).


Only surviving copy, held in the state archives at the Library of Virginia, has a manuscript date of December 17, 1806, reflecting the date it was submitted to the Assembly; the petitioners sought a reduction of the charges for grain milling set by the Assembly; the request was rejected at the recommendation of the Committee on Grievances & Petitions. Sheet lacks colophon; the petitioners were all from Henrico or Goochland Counties, indicating this petition was printed in Richmond; however, the item does not indicate the particular press there that issued this sheet, so the indeterminacy here.
