Alternative proposed to the Bill to Amend Act establishing a Penitentiary House (1821.011) which was offered on January 18, 1821. Title lacks imprint; Thomas Ritchie, the public printer, was ordered on January 29, 1821, to print 250 copies of this bill for the use of the Assembly; while Ritchie held an interest in press office of Daniel Trueheart & Samuel Cary at this time, he also regularly subcontracted public work to that of Samuel Shepherd & William Pollard; the absence of evidence for which press he assigned this item, so making him the only tradesman identified with this title.
