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.

You did great -- just some indication that words are blobbed is great! If it becomes really crucial, the original documents are in archival storage and can be examined. Occasionally, you can make out words under layers of ink.
