An Act for Uniting Part of Baltemore County, to Anne-Arundel
County.

Whereas the several Inhabitants on the South' Side of Patapsco
River in Baltemore County, have, by their humble Petition to this
present General Assembly set forth, That for many Years past,

County, meerly and with no other Intent than to bear a Part of the
necessary Charge of the said Baltemore County, with the few In-
