Petition #11284004


Thirty-one residents in the Spring Creek community in Buncombe County feel "deeply concerned for a Certain Cullard man named William B Hammons who we believe if he was tolerated to speak in Publick would be a means of doing much good." They purport that said Hammons "keeps company with no negroes all his association is with white people and no person that knows him doubts his sincerity as a religious Carracter." The petitioners therefore pray that Hammons "may have liberty to pray, exhort, or Preach amongst in Publick."
