1805.067: Petition seeking Flood Gates on Back Creek in Norfolk.

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 that act authorizing "the lower bridge on Back Creek" be amended to allow the fitting of flood gates there; the Assembly declined to act on the request at this session, but did make such changes at the ensuing session of December 1806. 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.
