This we feel to be unjust and unequal. For we pay taxes in proportion to our numbers, as...
Stran 507 - Hubbard as and for his last will and testament, in the presence of us, who at his request, and in his presence, and in presence of each other, have subscribed our names as witnesses hereto: Abner McFerson, Josiah Ricks, Jay C.
