Notes
Content : Mr. Nevill's speech to the House of representatives of ... New-Jersey, on the second reading of the petition, from ... inhabitants chiefly of the northern part of the province and that "upon the second reading of the petition from the Rioters committee" (2 l. between p. 11 and 13 at end) were delivered April 26, 1746, and here "reprinted from the New-York Weekly Post-Boy" of May 19 and 26.

Content : A presentation of the case of the East Jersey proprietors against the occupants of lands in the town of Elizabeth deriving their title from grants made by Governor Nicolls about eighty years earlier. The document was probably prepared by James Alexander. A reply was published in 1752, with title: "An answer to A bill in the chancery of New-Jersey". The case never came to a decision, being thus settled practically in favor of the defendants. cf. Hatfield's History of Elizabeth, New Jersey, 1868.
