I, the undersigned, do hereby most
respectfully petition your honorable

personal taxes in Molina township
after return day. I would not have
petitioned your honorable body for
this, but as I found myself short
said amount in settling up with the
proper olbcers. and I lully believe
that said shortage is duo to mistakes
the footings of the tax book.
wherein I found some mistakes while
making out the delinquent book, I
consider that I am lully entitled to
have the amount refunded.
Contrary to custom, I had to do
double work for the usual compen
sation, and if, beside, I shall b com
pelled to stand this loss, I think it is
my right to ask to have the tax book
footed up by an expert in order to
t.nd the true cause for the shortage.
Praying this, my petition, be
granted, I am very respectfully
yours, Robe'ict Malcolm.
