Report addressed the Annual Report of the Board of Public Works (1818.001), as well as a petition from Greenbrier County, entered on December 2, 1817; the language and purpose of that petition conformed to that seen in the Memorial of Kanawha County Committee for Internal Improvements (1817.109), published in September 1817, and evidently presented to the board. The committee determined that such requested improvements were desirable, but the Assembly found that the estimated $2 million cost of the requested improvements was reason to defer any action until a later date. Title lacks imprint; Thomas Ritchie, the public printer, was ordered on January 21, 1818, to print 250 copies of this report for the use of the Assembly, so the attribution here to the partnership then conducting Ritchie's press.
