Title is actually a notice detailing the partition that accompanied manuscript subscriber lists; all were submitted on December 9, 1815; area described covers much of modern-day Clarke County, which was not formed until 1836, demonstrating the Assembly's deferral in 1815. Sheets lack colophon; majority of those signing are from Frederick County, so suggesting a Winchester origin for this title; however, the possibility of a Leesburg origin cannot be discounted, so the indeterminacy reported here.
