1811.100: Petition seeking Lottery for Paving Streets in Leesburg.
Full Title: To the honorable the Speaker and Members of the Senate and House of Delegates ... petition ... citizens of ... Leesburg ... inhabitants of the county of Loudoun ...
Author: Inhabitants of Loudoun County.
Place Issued: Leesburg
Issuing Press: Patrick McIntyre
Description: 1 sheet [1 pg.]; 32 cm. x 20 cm. (broadside).
Sheet lacks colophon; as this request is exclusively a Leesburg interest, this item undoubtedly issued there; the only press then operating in Leesburg was that of Patrick McIntyre, so the attribution here. Only known copy, held in the state archives at the Library of Virginia, has been dated in manuscript "December 10, 1811," which is the date the petition was accepted by the House of Delegates; as with nearly all lottery requests received at this time, this one was tabled and no action was taken during this Assembly session.
