Description
Wingate's constituents deem the bill for the establishment of the federal courts derogatory to New Hampshire, because the State is made one district with the Province of Maine, whereas every other state is a district by itself; if Maine cannot be comprised in the district of Massachusetts, it should be made a separate district; distances, and the nature of the coast line, which favors smuggling, make the latter plan advisable.
