Sheet lacks colophon; only known copy in the state archives at the Library of Virginia is dated in manuscript December 2, 1812, indicating the date it was received by the House (though not recorded individually in the House journal); several petitions were received during this session asking for changes to the system of chancery-court districts, but all were deferred in the face of deliberations over measures concerning the state's involvement with the War of 1812; some changes to the chancery-court system were enacted by the ensuing Assembly.
