Title established by indirect references; no extant copies known, so paper's proprietors unknown. Paper probably printed by William Brown (058), who relocated to Charlestown from Martinsburg in the winter of 1801-02 after Jefferson County was formed. Earliest secondary reference is from Martinsburg's Berkeley and Jefferson Intelligencer of March 18, 1803, so start date above; latest known reference is from Kline's Carlisle [Penn.] Weekly Gazette of November 30, 1804, which reprinted an article from the Patriot's issue of November 12th, so end date here.
