The first edition of this volume was printed in 1814, by the late Mr. Samuel Pleasants, printer to the commonwealth* by contract with the editor, and the sheets sent to Petersburg to be bound. As many copies as were subscribed for by the state, at thai time, and a few over, were finished and delivered, the remaining sheets were ail burnt, in the dreadful fire which happened in that town on the 16th day of July, 1815. This impression is re-printed page for page with the former, with the addition of a collection of historical documents, at the end of the Volume.
