A dispassionate remonstrance of the nature and tendency of the laws now in force for the reduction of interest; and the consequences that must inevitably flow from them, if continued in their present form. With a proposal for universal and immediate redress, by alleviating the burthen of the people in general, compleating at once the reduction proposed, reinstating the Parliament in its power of redemption, giving better satisfaction to the public creditors, and providing more effectually for the support of the Crown. Humbly addressed to the Commons of Great Britain in Parliament assembled.
