Session met from October 20 to December 22, 1783. Surviving copies of imprint all lack the title page, being bound with other session laws; thus printer is reported variously as Dunlap & Hayes (by Swem) and Nicolson & Prentis (by Evans); state records indicate that Hayes was tardy in issuing this journal (near the start of the next Assembly in October 1784) and so was reprimanded for his negligence; printing of an also-tardy Senate journal (1784.004) was then assigned to the Richmond press of Nicolson & Prentis as well. John Dunlap and James 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.
