The Petition of the Right Revd Alexander MacDonell Catholic Bishop of Regispoles? of the Revd Michael Brennan and the Roman Catholic Inhabitants of the Township of Tyendanaga

Humbly Sheweth
That the Inhabitants of the Township of Tyendanaga labour under great inconvenience and disadvantage for want of a convenient place of worship, having no church or chapel nearer to them than Belleville a distance of eighteen or twenty miles in which account their women and weaker part of their families are prevented from attending Divine Service on Sundays and tus deprived of the benefit of their Religion.

Your Petitoners therefore, beg leave to lay a state of their situation before your Excellency, in hopes that your Excellency will be pleased to take their case into consideration, and grant them Lot No Twenty four south range of the first Concession south of the road of the said Township of Tyendanaga in order to erect a Church on it as the most central and convenient place for your Petitoners, and also for the Catholic Inhabitants of the neighbouring Townhsips of Richmond, hungerford, Sheffield, and part of Sophiasburgh

And your Petitoners as in duty bound will ever pray

Alexr Macdonell Ep? R
Michael Brennan M Mp?
