( il )

That the Variation now propofed is the fame, and the Neceffity equal, if not
greater : — That moll, if not all the Colonies of North-America, who aflifted in the late
War, have had tlie lame Difficulty to get over ; and yet have been obliged to do it,
and at Times when the Necefiiry was leis than at prefent.— That the diftrefled Circum-
ftance of our Frontiers is fuch, that if it had not been for the early and prudent Steps
his Excellency has taken, by fending up the Militia, great Depopulation and Confufion
mufl h^ve followed, if not m.any Lives loft, in a Manner too fhocking lor us to
mention. — That the great Hardfhips the Militia have already fuiTercd, makes it very
unequal to expeft they could have aflifted much longer. — That every Year till the
Time propofed in the preient Law for finking the Money, is exceedingly loaded with
Taxes, occafioned through the repeated Exertions of this Province in the late glorious
V/ar. — That the immediate Want of Money, and Impofiibiiity of raifing it but by an
Emiflion in the Manner propofed, muft make it evident, that we have not willingly
attempted to increaie our Paper Currency ; tho' our Lands and Eftates being mort-
gaged, is Security that n^ver has or can be queftioned ; and the Way that Currency
makes for fenuing Silver and Gold to pay our Debts in Britain, rather increafes its
Credit, the longer it circulates ; and it being Yearly funk in large Sums, when the
Addition now offered is made, the Currency will be lefs by upwards of ;^. 20,000,
than it was in the late War ; neither is the Time for finking itVo long as hath been
b-fore.— That this ceing a plan State of Fadls., v/e .hope, the diftrefled Situation of
our Frontiers, and the unavoidable Neceffity of the Meaiure, will plead its Excufe.
