[Note: The blank names shown as underscores (_____) in Robert Poole's application for curatorship are actually shown as such in the original as well. It looks as if this document may have been intended as a rough draft, but was accepted as the application itself, as no other copy of it appears in the probate records.]

To the Honourable the Judge of the Parish of East Feliciana State of Louisiana and Exofficio Judge of the Court of Probate in & for the same.

The Petition of Robert Pool of the aforesaid Parish & State respectfully represents: That he has been appointed provisional administrator of the succession of Fleming Tynes deceased. And that his wife Anne Pool and Mrs _____ Trescott wife of _____ Trescott _____ McKnight wife of John McKnight and Anson Tynes are all the Heirs of said Fleming who are present in the State. And that Martha Pool wife of William Pool & Elizabeth Lucas wife of Thos Lucas [lined out: and Fleming Tynes Jr] and the Children & representatives of Minor Tynes are all the other heirs of the said deceased & that they reside in the State of Miss. That it is necessary that a counsil should be [one word illegible, probably "appointed"] to represent the said minor heirs and that they should have a curator to protect them in their rights, and that the heirs who are present should be cited to declare whether they accept or renounce said succession or in what manner they accept. And this Petitioner further represents that he as the representative of his wife accepts the succession with the benefit[?] of inventory.

Wherefore your Petitioner prays that an Atty & Curator of the absent heirs of said succession may be appointed & that the said heirs who are presant may be legally cited to appear and declare whether they accept conditionally or unconditionally or renounce said succession. And that your Petitioner [two words illegible, perhaps "be appointed"] Curator of said absent heirs and for general relief.
