 PETITION.
To the Legislative Assembly of British Columbia.
.    Honourable Gentlemen:
We, the undersigned citizens and residents of Hall's Prairie, Clover Valley, and the
settlement commonly known as the James Gray settlement, and the vicinity, would most
respectfully submit the necessity for a road through the aforesaid part of New Westminster District. Said road to commence at Semiahmoo Bay; thence east to Hall's
Prairie, there to intersect the road partially constructed by the Government last season,
which runs through Townships 7 and 8 to the Fort Hope and Yale .Road, completing
that portion of the road and continuing it north to the Fraser Biver. As this road, from
its position and outlets, is destined to be one of the trunk roads of the Province, we
would suggest that it be built eighteen feet wide and in such a manner that it will be fit
for traffic at all seasons of the year. The proposed line of road passes through the best
farming portion of the district, and its construction would greatly assist in the settling
up of the same. In conclusion, we, your humble petitioners, would beg your honourable
body to give this matter your serious attention, appropriating a sum sufficient for the
completion of the sai'd work at as early a date as possible, as, for want of a road, the
settlers at present have no means of marketing their produce, and the settlers on Hall's
Prairie and vicinity are compelled to pass through American Territory (U.S.A.) in order
to obtain an outlet; and your humble petitioners would ever pray, &c.
(Signed)       Arthur J. Watson,
BoBERT REISTERER,
June, 1878. August Lund,
AND 155 OTHERS.
