John C. Brawner and myself. I also know the very distressed situation in which the Petitioner & her small family were placed in consequence of their removal, & the difficulty with which she contrived to support them since, and verily believe her to be a deserving woman & hope that her present application may be favorably received by the Legislature. John Lawson Dumfries September 29th 1810 I am acquainted with the Petitioner and believe the facts in her petition stated to be true and herself meriting the interference of the Legislature in her favor in which I hope she may be gratified. [Alsa Henderson?] Sept 29 1810

We the Subscribers cheerfully concur in Support of the foregoing Memorial & Petition, under a Confident impression of the correctness of the statement therein made, and hope that the prayer of the Petitioner may be granted verily believing that the accommodation prayed for will be of material benefit to the Petitioner & her family and of no Injury to the Community or any Individual thereof.
