MEMORIAL to the Hon.

Your memorialists would further represent that, in consequence of the before mentioned extension of the lines of reservation, and the lands they embrace being surveyed and exposed for sale in a manner that precludes the possessors of said lands from availing themselves of the right of pre-emption, or the advantages of the homestead law, great injustice is done to the citizens whose interests are involved in the transaction: Therefore, your Memorialists would respectfully ask your Honor to institute such action as you may of right do, to counteract the injustice of the before mentioned encroachments'upon the rights of the parties aggrieved, and thus open to them all the privileges that the Parent Government has so beneficently extended to it3 citizens. And, as in duty bound, your Memorialists will ever pray. George A. Smith, President of the Council. • -' John Taylor, Speaker of the House of Rep's. ¦ Charles Durkee, Governor.
