Description: 1 sheet [1 pg.]; 40 cm. x 16 cm. (broadside).


A petition to Congress concerning the Jay Treaty, declared in effect in February 1796 and whose funding was debated by the ensuing session beginning in December 1796. Sheet lacks colophon; dating by Hummel indicates production between those two dates; however, the copy he saw at the Library of Virginia is not listed in current digital catalog, so obscuring the petitioners' opinion on that treaty; clearly a Richmond title, but press cannot be assigned without evidence of that opinion.
