Author: Preston, John (1764-1827), treasurer.

Place Issued: Richmond

Issuing Press: Deborah W. L. Pleasants

Description: 5 sheets of varying sizes.


Only copies known held by the Library oi Congress; the House ordered 250 copies of these documents printed with the treasurer's report on October 11th; however, that cover letter is now lost (1814.108), so leaving Swem to report each element separately. Consents include: (A): Disbursements, 1st January to 30th September, 1814; (B): The public treasury between 1st January and 30th September, 1814; (C): Receipts at treasury of Virginia 1st October to 31st December, 1813; (D):Disbursements from 1st October to 31st December, 1813; and (E): Receipts at treasury of Virginia, Jan. 1-Sep. 30, 1814. Long-time public printer, Samuel Pleasants, died just six days before this session opened; the Assembly chose to continue employing his press for most of this session, granting his widow, Deborah W. L. Pleasants, her husband's formal title until January 1, 1815; thereafter, Thomas Ritchie, the printer to the Senate, assumed that larger role, with his protégé, Thomas Burling, taking on his old assignment; this division of labor meant that most of the session's printing was completed at the Argus Office, with Ritchie picking up the load with the start of the new year, just three weeks work; still, the daily House journal was issued from the Argus Office for the duration of the Assembly. This work distribution informs the attribution made here.
