Transcribed by RaNae Vaughn.

STATE OF MISSISSIPPI
TISHOMINGO COUNTY

To the Honorable Board of Supervisors of said County:

We the undersigned road commissioners of the Golden Road District beg leave to report that we held a meeting in the office of T. A. Clark, attorney for said road commissioners on the 20th day of June, 1917, and after careful deliberation we decided to recommend to you for your approval the construction of a road in said road district as follows: Beginning on or near where the Pikeville and Iuka public road intersect the line between the north half and south half of section one township seven, range ten, and follow said road as much as practicable in a southerly direction in and through the town of Golden, and from said town of Golden into said public road and follow said road as much as practicable to the Alabama State Line.

We believe that said road is a practicable route and that it will be a convenience to the traveling public and therefore ask that you approve the action of said commissioners in determining and fixing said road to be constructed out of the proceeds of the bond sale.
