Thomas Ritchie, the public printer, was ordered on February 8, 1821, to print 250 copies of these two reports for the use of the Assembly; while Ritchie held an interest in press office of Daniel Trueheart & Samuel Cary at this time, he also regularly subcontracted public work to that of Samuel Shepherd & William Pollard; the absence of evidence for which press he assigned this item, so making him the only tradesman identified with this title. Swem recorded item twice, once from the order to print (9213) and again from a copy in the Library of Congress (9274); entry number reported here corresponds to the printed item.
