PETITION OF CITIZENS IN THE WEST PART OF PORTAGE COUNTY, RELATING TO THEIR EXPOSED CONDITION.

TO GEN. ELIJAH WADSWORTH, Canfield, Ohio:
     We, the subscribers, citizens and committee of the towns of Stoe, Franklin, Northhamton and Harmonsburgh, do Humbly show that the inhabitants of said towns are entirely destitute of ammunition such as powder, lead or flings, and a very great number destitute of arms.  We, the said committee, petition to your Honour to forward on as many arms as can be spared, about one hundred pounds of powder, five hundred flints, and lead in proportion.  Our present defenceless situation is well Known to your Honour, and no doubt will give such relief as may be in your power.  We do not consider the number of men in this part of our frontier sufficient to protect it.  We therefore pray that you may send on such a number of men as you may think sufficient for that purpose.
