Reference: SC Dept of Archives and History , Series S165015, no date given.

To the Honorable the President and 
other members of the Senate of the State
of South Carolina ~

The Petition of the undersigned residents in the parish of
Saint Andrews pray your honorable body that the 

mode of electing commissioners of the road may 
be altered from the present mode, which they deem 

a very partial one (whenever a vacancy happened the 
board filling up themselves) be a mode more consonant to

the interests of the parishoners which mode they would 
humbly submit to your honorable body would be to 
permit every citizen in the parish to vote for such ap-

pointment, by means whereof the commissioners would 
not only be more conveniently located in a geographi-

cal point of view, but the roads and highways of the 
parish be kept in much better order. By extending relief 

to your petitioners in the premises they [xxx]duty 
bound will ever pray-
