Author: Inhabitants of Counties adjacent to Danville.

Place Issued: Danville

Issuing Press: Elhanan W. Reinhart

Description: 1 sheet [1 pg.]; 23 cm. x 25 cm. (broadside).


One of at least 8 petitions (Danville, Lynchburg, and counties of Henry, Campbell, Bedford, Halifax, and Patrick) presented to the Assembly on December 11, 1818, requesting either the establishment of a newly-chartered bank at Danville, or requiring one of the state's existing banks to open a branch office there; another was received from Halifax on December 18th, which is apparently the title recorded by Hummel. Sheet carries colophon of Elhanan W. Reinhart, but no date; Hummel supplied an 1811 date without consulting Assembly records; Reinhart established his press at Danville in the spring of 1818, so item was printed sometime between then and Assembly opening in December.
