Petition For Punishment

From the History of the Town of Cheshire, Berkshire County, Mass:

July 8, 1814 

We the subscribers inhabitants of the town of Cheshire, supposing that you have the power to control or remove the British prisoners now located in Cheshire, think proper to state that they have conducted themselves in such a manner as to render their longer stay in this place highly improper.

Richmond Brown was one of the subscribers.
