Issuing Press: Thomas Ritchie

Description: Unrecorded


Title supplied by Swem from the House journal; that chamber's deliberations over a bill first proposed by Samuel Taylor of Chesterfield (1818.08) and an offered alternative (1818.012), led to amendments proposed by Robert G. Scott of York County and Charles Hill of King & Queen County on January 29th(1818.017); a week later, Taylor suggested these changes as a result of further deliberations; the process resulted in the passage on February 21, 1818 of "An act appropriating part of the revenue of the Literary Fund" (Chap. XI of Acts of December 1817 Assembly), which established local school boards and the University of Virginia. No copy known extant; Thomas Ritchie, the public printer, was ordered on February 5, 1818, to print 250 copies of this amendment for the use of the Assembly, so the attribution here to the partnership then conducting Ritchie's press.
