The signers of the following document appear to be all residents of Roxbury. There is an uncertainty as to the hand writing. Possibly the document may have been drawn up elsewhere and copies sent to this and other towns in the colony, so that there may be others extant. The name erased at the top of the left-hand column is probably that of Thomas Weld, then an inhabitant of Roxbury, who was a son of the Rev. Thomas Weld.

The humble Petition of some of the people that lyve under the Jurisdiction of the massachusets government, unto our honored Magistrats this 5th day of march 1672


That Whareas it hath pleased our ever honored Magistrats to send their letters to the Churches to move us to a liberal contribution towards the Colledg. and in one of those leters declared that if any of the good people have any obiecsion you give us leave to propose it, and also are pleased to promise us, to adde your indeavor to remove the same. We take the boldnesse to propose an obiecsion not with any intent to shorten either our owne or others hands to so good and pius a work, as we trust we shall make it appeare by our actions. but our only scope is, to indevor the removal of an evyl (as it appereth to us) in the educasion of youth at the Colledg. and that is, that they are brought up in such pride as doth no wayes become such as are brought up for the holy service of the lord. either in the Magistracy, or ministry especialy, and in perticular in their long haire, which last first tooke head, and broke out at the Colledg so far as we understand and remember. and now it is got into our pulpets, to the great greife and ffeare of many godly hearts in the Country

we find in the scriptures that the sons of the prophets, and such as were dedicated to god, were brought up in a way of mortification and humility. we beseech you to consider amos. 2. 11. 12. I raised up of your sons to be prophets, and of your young men to be Nazarites, is it not even thus o ye children of Israel saith the lord, but ye have given the nazarites wine to drink. Consider also pro. 16. 31 the hoary head is a crowne of glory if it be found in the way of righteousnesse. and are those haires so found, that are defiled with this lust? we beseech you consider, whether all other lusts which have so incorigibly brake in upon our youth, have not first sprung from the incorrigablenesse of this lust. our humble request is that you would please to use all due indeavours to cure this evyl. and so we commend you to the lord and to the word of his grace and remaine your Vmble petecinors att the thron of grac to assest and in able you in all your Waighty consarns and remain your Worships humble petitioners
