This session met from October 10, 1814 to January 19, 1815; imprint lacks date, but this title must have issued, according to statute, shortly after the Assembly adjourned in 1815. Imprint states: "Richmond: Printed at the Argus office, for the benefit of the representatives of Samuel Pleasants, deceased." Long-time public printer, Samuel Pleasants, died six days before this session opened; the Assembly chose to continue employing his press for most of the session, granting his widow, Deborah W. L. Pleasants, her husband's formal title until January 1, 1815; when that license expired, the Argus Office continued to print the House journal, while the remaining public work was assigned to Thomas Ritchie, their new public printer; this title represents the last one published under the auspices of Deborah Pleasants and her son Samuel Madison Pleasants.
