Description: Unrecorded


Title supplied by Swem from the House journal; that chamber's deliberations over a bill first proposed by Samuel Taylor of Chesterfield (1818.08) and an offered alternative (1818.012), led to amendments proposed by Robert G. Scott of York County and Charles Hill of King & Queen County on January 29th; a week later, Taylor would suggest additional changes as a result of further deliberations (1818.018); the process resulted in the passage of "An act appropriating part of the revenue of the Literary Fund, and for other purposes" (Chap. XI of Acts of December 1817 Assembly), on February 21, 1818, which established local school boards and the University of Virginia. No copy known extant; Thomas Ritchie, the public printer, was ordered on January 29, 1818, to print 250 copies of these amendments for the use of the Assembly, so the attribution here to the partnership then conducting Ritchie's press.
