— An Application to sell Spirits at Martins Tavern —

The Petition of Joseph Martin of the Township of West Bradford in the County of Chester Humbly Showeth.

"That there is a necessity for a Publick house for the Entertainment of Travellers in said Township, there being many large roads much used by travellers and no house of Entertainment upon any of them for several miles distant so that they are often times obligated to be burdensome to the neighbors or want refreshment. And your petitioner has now purchased a lott with a house thereon, and is now erecting a commodious house at the place, it being convenient for most of the roads for many miles remote from any house of entertainment upon any of them, your petitioner therefore prays you would be pleased to recommend him to his honour the Governor for a Lycence to keep a house of entertainment for travellers at the place aforesaid."
