Issuing Press: Deborah W. L. Pleasants
Description: 4 sheets [7 pgs.]; 32cm. (fol.).
One of three accounting statements submitted to the Assembly with the auditor's annual report (1814.117); the House ordered 250 copies of each printed on November 16, 1814; Swem lists all four elements separately, so then does this Index. Long-time public printer, Samuel Pleasants, died 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.
