To the Honb'e General Assembly of North Carolina

The petition of a part of the inhabitants of Montgomery County

Respectfully Shewith:

That your petitioners labour under great inconvenience in attending the Courts of the County, and other public business at the Court-house, in consequance of their remote situation living in the South West corner of the County, and many of them having to travel from twenty [five] to thirty five miles without convenient roads leading to the same, and separated from it by the Yadkin or Pee Dee river which is often impassable and always oblidged to be ferried, by which circumstance they are frequently interrupted and eposed to personal danger, delay and expense These among other hardships and inconveniances, render them liable to be imposed upon & often to put up with abuses which in other situations might be readily addressed, your petitioners most respectfully & humbly pray that your Honb'e body will be pleased to grant them releif by annexing them to the County of Cabarrus, and incorporating them as part of said County of Cabarrus by a line, commencing at the corner tree of Cabarrus andRowan [& Montgomery] & runnig thence a direct course to Exodus Whitley's foard on Rocky river

your petitioners beg leave to inform you that a majority of them border on the line of said County of Cabarrus that it would be much more convenient for them on account of traveling to and from the Court-house and without any formadable stream of water to interrupt them. Your petitioners therefore with respectful submission beg leave to appeal to your Honb'e body for redress of their grievances,(some of which have been set forth) by passing an act, to annex & incorporate them with the County of Cabarrus by a line as above described. And your petitioners as in duty bound, will ever pray &c
