Whereas many barbarous invasions have been made upon several of His Majesty’s Colonies in America, and on the Frontiers of this Province in particular, by divers Parties of the Northern and Western Indians, whereby a great number of the Inhabitants have been driven from their Habitations, many perfidiously murdered and the most cruel Devastations committed in manifest Violation of the most solemn Treaties of Peace lately concluded between our most gracious Sovereign and the said Indians. And whereas His Majesty’s Commander in Chief in North America has thought it necessary, for repelling and preventing the Incursions of the said Indians, to set on Foot certain offensive Operations, to be prosecuted and carried on by His Majesty’s regular forces, in Conjunction with such as should be required of and raised by the several Colonies, Therefore, We, the Representatives of the People of this Province, desirous of complying in the fullest Manner, with the Requisition made of them by His Majesty’s said Commander in Chief, and of cooperating with such offensive Measures as shall be judged necessary for reducing the said Indians and securing the future Peace and Quiet of the Colonies aforesaid, do pray that it may be enacted and be it enacted...That the sum of Fifty five Thousand Pounds in Bills of Credit, to be struck by Virtue of this Act in the Manner herein after mentioned, shall be given to the King’s use.
