We have been asked to pay 291l.3s. for the Army, and have been threatened as the other counties have been.This is very unpopular, especially as the incidence of the tax is unfair, and enables the large landlords to go free.The land is assessed by quarters, though some quarters are double, and some treble the value of others,(isn't this precious !)and whilst some tenants enjoy easy rents others have had their rents improved to the utmost value.We have always been loyal, and trust that this hopeful plantation of the British will not be overthrown.The Grand Jury has already presented to us many soldiers for offences committed against the people.Signed:- William Sempill, W. Coningham, George Cauper (?) Ra. Mansfield, Thomas Perkins, Wm. Ferrer, Paul Gore, Basil Brooke, John Hamilton, Arch. Adair.
