Author: Hallam, Nicholas, agent.

Place Issued: Richmond

Issuing Press: Uncertain

Description: 1 sheet [1 pg.]; 27 cm. x 22 cm. (broadside).


Sheet lacks colophon; only known copy at the Virginia Historical Society is dated "Richmond, June 30, 1807" in manuscript, so establishing date and place of issue; as Samuel Pleasants was then Virginia's public printer, this item likely issued from his press, given Hallam's status as a state employee; however, the regular subcontracting of such uncommon public work to other presses in Richmond means that a definitive attribution cannot be made here.
