The mischief of the five shillings tax upon coal, here is humbly represented, that this tax is inconsistent with the safety of England, partial upon the poor, pernicious to our shipping, and seamen, destructive of our river-men, viz. boat-men, keel-men, barge-men, ballast-men, coal-heavers, &c. Fatal to our manufactures made with sea-coal; especially salt, glass, and all sorts of gross ironwork; (that by this tax must be run into the coal countries, or out of the kingdom,) and highly injurious to his Majesites revenue.
