- Biographical or historical data
- During its session begun in May 1780 the General Assembly passed an act authorizing the governor to impress supplies needed by the American army. The governor appointed commissioners of the provision law in each locality to carry out the terms of the act. The commissioner, when the property was impressed, gave the owner a certificate describing what was taken. Between 1781 and 1783 county courts held special sessions at which certificates were presented and authenticated, and booklets listing authenticated certificates were compiled and sent to Richmond for settlement. Two commissioners appointed to settle the claims recorded those for which they authorized payment, and warrants were issued by the auditor of public accounts.
- During its session begun on 6 May 1782 the General Assembly passed an act authorizing the auditor of public accounts to settle public claims submitted by local courts. During its session begun on 7 October 1782 the General Assembly amended this act to require the auditor to reaudit warrants issued for paper money used for property impressed for public use, and to grant other warrants in specie. The General Assembly amended the act again during its session begun on 7 May 1783 and appointed two commissioners to settle public claims.
