1775

Draft of petition of House of Assembly to Parliament asking help. Need of a proper medium of circulating currency. Suggest Act of British Legislature allowing the province, by act of Assembly, to emit £40,000 in paper bills. Benefits would accrue both to the province and to Great Britain. Ruin will otherwise ensue in the province.
