Text of Petition: 54-1-1803-3

To the Honb'le Speaker and Honb'le House of
Representatives of the State of Tennessee —
We your Humble petitioners Showeth that whereas there
are many Inconveniences and disadvantages arising to

We therefore find it highly incumbent on us to pray a
regulation of said counties may take place and upon
the following plan —

To begin at a certain point on the Kentucky line and
run due South thereby dividing the counties of Smith
and Sumner extending Said line South far enough
to reduce the county of Smith to its consitutional area, {insert?}
then the County of Jackson to take its Beginning on the
said Kentucky line and be laid off in the same manner
as the county of Smith on the Eastern Line thereof to its
consitutional limit — and we your petitioners further
pray that the county of Jackson may not be entered nor the
court house thereof established untill a regulation as above
should take place, and as in duty bound we your humble
petitioners shall ever pray &c &c —
