Description
The grants of the General Court to the east of Penobscot are in a fair way of being confirmed; the Lords of Trade still think the right of the province doubtful as to lands between Penobscot and St. Croix, and they think the province can claim no right to the lands on the St. Lawrence; however, if the province will cede all pretence to the latter lands, which are destined to form part of the government of Quebec, the crown will waive farther dispute concerning the former lands: reasons why this would be advantageous to the province.
