Report of the commissioners on petition for change of boundary line between the towns of Warren and Bristol

Providence: Providence Press Company, 1873. 8vo, pp. 20; self-wrappers, stitched, as issued; very good. Property owners at the northern edge of Bristol seek to change the boundary between the two towns so they would live in Warren, the downtown of which much closer than the downtown of Bristol. Accompanied by a contemporary copy of the original manuscript petition of the Bristol residents, listing the names of 59 affected property owners, to the State of Rhode Island, a 7-page document outlining the argument, signed by the R.I. Secretary of State, Joshua M. Addeman, dated May, 1872, stating that "the said petition be continued to the next January session of the General Assembly, and that in the meantime the petitioners give notice of the pendency of the said petition with a copy of this order to be served on the town clerks of the towns of Bristol and Warren." The petition was ultimately approved and that part of Bristol was annexed to Warren in May, 1873. Item #56395
