Title
[Document, 1769 October n.d.]
Abstract
The agents for New York recommend that lines be drawn from the head of the Delaware Bay to the northernmost part of the Connecticut River; from the latitude of 41 degrees on the Hudson to the fork at Easton; from the latitude of 41 degrees on the Hudson to the northern side of the mouth of Little Egg Harbor to the east branch of the Delaware; these being, respectively, the line of the royal grants to the Duke of York; the boundary between New York and New Jersey; a line extended by New York which appears on ancient maps; and a line drawn by Reid and Emly and partly by George Keith as the boundary between East and West Jersey. They recommend that these be put on the General map. Signed by John Morin Scott, William Bayard and Benjamin Kissam.
