1805.064: Petition seeking Changes in Norfolk Borough Charter.

Published: 1805

Full Title: To the Speaker and Members of the House of Delegates ... inhabitants of the borough of Norfolk ...

Author: Inhabitants of the Borough of Norfolk.

Place Issued: Norfolk

Issuing Press: Uncertain

Description: 1 sheet [1 pg.]; 23 cm. x 26 cm. (broadside).


Petitioners asked for annual election of the then appointed Mayor and compensation for the Mayor and Alderman from the public coffers; the Assembly agreed to the salary request as a provision in a revenue bill unrelated to the borough charter. Sheet lacks colophon; undoubtedly a Norfolk-issued imprint, but the multiplicity of presses then operating there precludes an attribution to any specific one without further evidence.
