ALS : American Philosophical Society I wrote to you on the 8th Instant, intending that Letter via Bristol, but it goes with this. The Bill I mention’d is since come down with an absolute Refusal, as the Proprietary Instructions were not comply’d with, to have his Town Lots exempted, and his best located unimprov’d Lands rated no higher than the lowest of the People’s. The House, extreamly...
