Described
Biographical or historical data
An act of the General Assembly, approved March 30, 1871, provided for the funding and payment of the public debt which was proportioned between Virginia and West Virginia, by authorizing direct payment of West Virginia's share to the holders of stocks, bonds or interest certificates except the five per centum dollar bonds and sterling bonds. The intent was to facilitate reduction of the debt and the restoration of the credit of Virginia by providing for prompt payment of the interest on her proportion of the debt.
