Published: 1815

Full Title: Congress. House of Representatives. Speech of Mr. Clopton delivered on his motion to strike out the first section of a bill to "incorporate subscribers to the Bank of the United States of America" ... on the 22d of December, 1814.

Author: Clopton, John (1756-1816).

Place Issued: Richmond

Issuing Press: Uncertain

Description: 1 sheet [1 pg.]; 52 cm. x 33 cm. (broadside).


Sheet lacks colophon; most authorities assign an 1814 date and a Washington origin to this item, based on date of speech; Hummel assigned it to an unnamed Virginia press in 1814. John Clopton was a Republican representing congressional district that included Richmond; it was his usual practice to publish letters to constituents through a Richmond press of similar political perspective; so this sheet likely issued from the partisan press of Thomas Ritchie & Daniel Trueheart, but the possibility that it originated at another press, such as that of the fading Virginia Argus, cannot be discounted, so the indeterminacy here.
