To the Senate and House of Representatives of the State of Maine.
We, the subscribers, a committee for and in behalf of the town of Hebron, represent that the local situation of the town of Hebron is such as to disommode [sic] the inhabitants in transacting their business, by reason of its great length, and no convenient center, wherefore your Petioners [sic] pray that said town of Hebron may be divided by Mattews pond and streams so called agreeable to a vote of said town in a legal meeting for that purpose, held the 22d day of Dec. 1828.
As in duty bound will ever pray.
Dated at Hebron the twenty-ninth day of December in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and twenty-eight.
