Issuing Press: Uncertain

Description: 1 sheet [1 pg.]; 33 cm. X 20 cm. (broadside).


Signers ask that the District Court at Dumfries not be relocated to Centerville, as petitioned by others (see 1799.063 & 1799.064). Sheet lacks colophon; the only recorded copy held in the state archives at the Library of Virginia is dated at end in manuscript "Dec. 16, 1799" by a clerk of the House of Delegates, indicating date of submission, and so of production; residences of petitioners indicates that this broadside probably issued from one of the two Alexandria presses that were then in operation, but without other evidence, attributing a specific press is purely speculative.
