19 June 1778

Petition and remonstrance of John Fenton, Provost-Marshall, to the House of Assembly, stating his objections to an act under consideration. By royal appointment he is the only executive officer of the Crown; the new act will cut off much of his fees without reducing his duties correspondingly. He prays that the Assembly will make provision for him. (Copy)
