A Caution to the Good People of the Province of
A'w-Allbion; alias corruptedly called; at pre-
Sfnt, Thlie jerfi.
IXTtiHERAl this province ofNew-Albinm was,
V at great trouble and expense, fettled and
peopled iitth too ment from England by Sir Ed-
ward Plowdcn, Earl Palatine, and Oovcrnor of
Ncw-Albion, in consideration for which King
Charles the fir R granted to thea Ld E al of Albion
his letter patent, for forty leagues failure on the
main land. beginning at Cape-May, and including
Snndy-klook, with all royalties, mi-s, mineral,
and iflands within ten leagues in c fea. All
lhiclh are folly explained in the flid chatter.
And whereas the laid province was privately
.And wrongfully again chartered, by Kung Charls.
the a,', to his brother the Duke of York, contrary
bthi to law andequtity ; therefore his, the fccond
ufurped charge, having no foundation in light,
-very act On fale, by dcred and wring arifing
therefrom, muft he null and void, and dead in law, that cannot be denied by any person offenfc.
And whereas preparations arc making not only
to maintain the chartered right fur the future,
but to caule a refund for fuch property as has been
received by the fale of lands, &c. in laid province,
under tallt title,.
SThis i therefore Jo caution the public in gene-
ral, not to buy or cotrait with any man or body
of mnn whatever, fur any land in New-Albion,
except undtr fuch local grants as were givenby the
Earl uf Albion in viutue of the firf charter, of
ihluch there are man) now fublifting; but as all
iyalLies were rcftivdi to the Clid Earl in thofe
grants, thi is therefore to caution all perfons
lha:cevecr, not to open or work any mine. or mi.
ncral; within the bplundaries of faid province, till
the law direds which charter can cuoivey real
,tties. -
Thofc that doubt the reality of this claim, are
referred to the register of Burlington for deeds
originating from the 6fi- charter.
SAlfo a full llght may be thrown on the matter
ay reading pamphlets long fince depofited in the
public librarinc of Burlington and Philadelphia, or
it Mr. Smith's hifloly of New.Jerfey.

nal chapter regiller.d in Dublin, authenticated
undtr the hand and i(cal of tle lord mayor of
Dublin, May 1784, may be fecn by applying to

agent for the above Earl of Albion.
