1798.056: Petition for a Road from Staunton to Alexandria.

Published: 1798

Full Title: The honorable ... General Assembly: the petition of sundry inhabitants of the state of Virginia ... inhabit a country remote from the two large rivers ... [ask for a road from Staunton to Alexandria and Washington]

Author: Sundry Inhabitants of Virginia.

Place Issued: Virginia

Issuing Press: Uncertain

Description: 1 sheet [1 pg.]; 32 cm. x 19 cm. (broadside).


Only copy known extant is held in the state archives at the Library of Virginia; dated at end in manuscript "Dec. 8, 1798" by a clerk of the House of Delegates, indicating submission date. Sheet lacks printer credit; location of road sought by petitioners indicates that this broadside could have been issued from many Virginia presses, so without other evidence an attribution is impracticable.
