Purpose / Short Description:

Text of Petition: 22-1-1803-1

To the Honorable the General assembly of the State of Tennessee, The Petition of a Number of the Citizens of Montgomery County Humbly showeth that whereas at {} last General Assembly a law was passed, making, or keeping open the navi=gation of the West fork of red river within our said County of Montgomery, which law we conceive Contrary to our interest & to the interest of the Public =k at large because the stream will not admit of Navigation at any time but in a flood & the advantage of Mills would so far surpass that of Navigation. We pray that your Honours would repeal the law as several merchant Mills may be build on said stream which will tend much to publick good.
