More from Catholic Trails West vol 2:p. 647

James went to Baltimore to meet with Bishop Carroll armed with a petition asking for the Prince's removal.
The Prince counteracted with a petition dated April 24, 1807. The petition was read to the congregation and 112 male members of the parish stepped forward to sign it, including, not surprisingly, a great many of the pioneers from Conewago. According to the Prince's accompanying letter to the Bishop, even his "Protestant neighbors' had offered to sign the petition and some of them were converting to Catholicism. The legible signatures to the Gallitzen petition were:
