Description: 1 sheet [1 pg.]; 50 cm. x 20 cm. (broadside, printed in three columns).

Sheet lacks colophon; as this title concerns Norfolk, it was likely issued there; and as the view evinced was Republican in nature, it was probably printed by Augustus C. Jordan, the only Republican printer there, so the attribution here.
