The undersigned residents of the town of Petersburg have known John Brown for many years, and have no hesitation in saying that his conduct in every respect has been most exemplary. He is a truly deserving and most honest well disposed servant and in our opinion merits from his great attention to his master, and his good conduct in every other respect, the favor which he wishes to confer on him, We most cheerfully join Mr Dunlop in his application to the Legislature of this state, and hope [illegible] that he will be liberated upon the terms set forthe in his petition. 28th March 1821.
