The Virginia Gazette

Today in the 1770s: January 31

WILLIAMSBURG, January 31, 1771.
I MISS a third volume of BARROW'S REPORTS. Whether it was lent out I forget. Perhaps some Gentleman's servant carried it from the capitol by mistake last October court. Whoever will let me know where it is, I shall be obliged to him for the information. GEORGE WYTHE.
