Notes
  • Text printed in two columns and signed, in print, at end: Meriwether Smith.

  • Publication details are based on the bookseller's statement that the sheet was originally discovered bound with a set of Alexander Purdie's Virginia Gazette, 1776-1777, and that the type is identical to the type used in other publications by Purdie.
