Major Sprigg from the Committee appointed to enquire intc
Ways and means &c delivers Mr Speaker the following Report.
By the Committee appointed to find out Ways and Means for
defraying the Publick Charge June 20. 1741
Your Committee having carefully examined into the present
State of the Paper Office and of the sundry duties arising on the
Trade of the Province do find there is little or no Money in the said
Office but what is appropriated to particular Uses, and that the said
duties being already charged with former Loans, any of the said
Appropriated Money now to be taken out for Payment of the Pub-
lick, could not be refunded in a great many Years, and therefore
conceive the most eligible method of discharging the sum of the
Journal of Accounts, will be by an equal Assessment on the taxable
Inhabitants of the Province Whereby the People will know what they
have at last to Pay after four Years Suspension of the Publick Tax,
