The Petition of a Number of Pres-byterians, Members of a Presbyterian Church or Congregation in the County of Bedford, known by the Name of the [Peaks?] of Otter, humbly showeth, That you Petitioners have in time past and are still willing to contribute [theis?] Quota in Support of the Church of England as by Law established in this Colony of Virginia; which they do with the more Cheerfulness, as they have [hitherto?] enjoyed their Rights and Privileges and the free Exercise of their Religion as Presbyteri an Dissenters unmolested: nor have they any Fears of Doubts of being disturbed therein by this Honourable House, while your Petiti-oners duly obey the Laws of their Country, continue good Subjects to their most gracious Sovereign, and are useful Members of the Communitiy.
