Date Filed (format: YYYY/MM/DD): 1803/07/03

Petitioner(s):

Purpose / Short Description:

Text of Petition: 16-1-1803-1 To the Honorable, the General Assembly of the State of Tennessee We your petitioners, a number of the Citizens of Wilson County, humbly sheweth, that whereas the last Session of the Honorable House, look measures to ascertain the boundary of said County, and also appointed Commissioners for the purpose of procuring a suitable place for the seat of justice, errecting publick buildings &c. Your Petitioners humbly conceive it was very improper for said Comissioners ot have acted, aftter themselves, as well as the Couty at large being fully convinced said County was not Constitutional as to its limits. Nevertheless, they proceeded to establish said County Town, very contrary in our humble opinion, to public justice, and greatly to the injury of the Community, even as the County now stands, and must of necessity be more so to any who may be added hereafter.- We therefore pray you Honorable Body, to take measures to redress our grievances, and that the [Courthouse?] may be brought to a more beneficial point, as a worse situation, perhaps will not be conveniently found, both as to the prospect of health and other accommodations. And your Petitioners, as in duty bound shall ever Pray. 3d July 1803
