In the December 1813 session, the General Assembly divided the Richmond & Williamsburg chancery-court districts into four, adding two new courts at Fredericksburg & Lynchburg; this petition asked that Nelson County be reassigned from the Staunton district to the Lynchburg one; the Assembly agreed in an act passed on December 19, 1814 (Chap. XXXV of Acts of October 1814 Assembly). Sheet lacks colophon; proximity of Nelson County to Lynchburg suggests that this broadside issued there, but the press cannot be identified.
