Handbill reporting allowable fees for pilots at various Virginia ports; imprint primarily repeats the text of Article V of Chap. I of the Acts of May 1783 (Hening's Statutes, XI: 185-189) with an addenda summarizing changes to the law made by Chap. XIII of the Acts of October 1783 (Hening's Statutes, XI: 320-321). Sheet lacks printer credit; Dunlap and Hayes began work in Richmond in December 1781 as Virginia's public printers; they held the position until May 1786 with Hayes the sole resident proprietor. Hence Bristol reports this item as a Hayes imprint, while the sinecure was held by the firm of Dunlap & Hayes, so the formal publisher of record. Swem dated this title to 1784 based on record in Assembly journals.
