Petition #11286107


Thirty-one residents of Rockingham and vicinity ask that the legislature ignore a previous petition from residents to stop the sale of liquor within two miles of the village. The petitioners counter that "a dram shop farther than two miles can not be watched as one so close to our village and that hence, the injury to the slave population will be much greater." They therefore "ask that such Law shall not be passed."
