Notes on the State of Virginia bears a modest title because it implies a series of random or fragmentary observations. In reality, however, Jefferson covers a wide range of data and issues, including questions of natural resources, laws, and hotly contested topics such as slavery and religious freedom. The word state may be understood to have a double meaning: "the geographic entity of Virginia" and "the state, or status, of its politics and economy."
