Published: 1793

Full Title: Reflections on the present state government of Virginia; and a variety of good causes shewn for altering the same. In two parts. By a native.

Author: A Native.

Place Issued: Richmond

Issuing Press: Uncertain

Description: 34 p. 18 cm. (4to).


Commentary on the non-proportionate representation in the General Assembly (part 1) and the refusal of counties benefitting from such disproportion to correct the system (part 2). Imprint carries date only; Bristol suggested that this title was issued in Richmond; typography is similar to another anonymous 1793 imprint criticizing the contemporaneous political situation credited to Samuel Pleasants of Richmond (1793.007); so this item is likely one from his press as well, but other possibilities preclude a definitive attribution.
