An / address / To the Inhabitants of / North-Carolina; /
occasioned / By the difficult Circumstances the Govern- / ment seems to labour under, for Want of a Medium, or / something to answer in lieu of Money; for the Encourage- / ment of the People, ir regard to Business: / To which is added, / A Proposition for a Paper-Currency, whereby the Possessors of / the Soil may, in a very honourable Manner, and with cheerful Hearts, / discharge their Quit-rents and publick Taxes: And whereby, also, new / Life may be given to Trade and Commerce, so far as is necessary; / which will be a natural Inducement to the fair Trader to settle and re- / side in the Government, as well as the only Means to propagate Navi- / gation (that necessary Branch of Business) in all its proper Parts. /
