Description: 1 sheet [1 pg.]; 20 cm. x 22 cm. (broadside).
Only copy known is held in the broadside collection at the Library of Virginia; a digital image of this item is available on the library's website through its online catalogue. Sheet lacks colophon; as no press operated in Mecklenburg at this time, the title had to issue elsewhere; the most likely source would be nearby Petersburg, however, the text does not present definitive evidence of such an origin, so the indeterminacy reported here.
