Only known copy is held in the collections of the Valentine Museum in Richmond. Sheet lacks colophon; as these verses are addressed to Thomas Ritchie, this title is clearly a Richmond imprint issued from the press producing Ritchie's Enquirer; Hummel suggests a date of 1811, which is more than possible, given the public interest exhibited immediately after the December 26th fire, despite there being only four days left in that year; hence, this Index adopts that dating.
