Title
[Document, 1719 n.d.]
Abstract
Acknowledge receipt of 27 August [1718?]. The anonymity of the papers sent is due to the concern of those who drafted them for their liberty and estates. They do not wish to bring down upon themselves the treatment accorded to the inhabitants of Suffolk County. They are surprised that the protest against the money bill was referred not to the Attorney General or Solicitor General but to a little co mmittee. The bill passed in New York is detrimental to the interests of the crown as well as to the people of New York. The bill enables magistrates, unchecked, to enrich themselves at the expense of the people. The Board of Trade appears to favor New Jersey over New York, in the line to be run between these states, and in the new charter granted to Amboy, which awarded a large piece of crown land to New Jersey.
