A True and impartial state of the province of Pennsylvania Containing, an exact account of the nature of its government; the power of the proprietaries, and their governors; as well those which they derive under the royal grant, as those they have assumed in manifest violation thereof, their father's charter, and the rights of the people: also, the rights and privileges of the Assembly, and people, which they claim under the said grant, charter, and laws of their country, confirmed by the royal approbation. With a true narrative of the dispute between the governors and assemblies, respecting the grants of supplies so often made by the latter, and rejected by the former. In which is demonstrated, by incontestable vouchers, that arbitrary proprietary instructions, have been the true and only cause of the refusal of such supplies, and the late defenceless state of the province. The whole being a full answer to the pamphlets intitled A brief state, and A brief view, &c. of the conduct of Pennsylvania. [Nine lines from Cato's letters]
