Abstract

Contains a petition of inhabitants of the Eastern Shore of Virginia & Maryland to Governor Edward Nott protesting against the enforcement by Virginia authorities of an export tax of two schillings on tobacco after the tax has already been paid in Maryland. Petitioners ask that this practice may not be allowed in the future, and that restitution may be made to them.
