STATE OF RHODE-ISLAND AND PROVIDENCE PLANTATIONS. IN GENERAL ASSEMBLY, JULY SESSION, 1780. AN ACT FOR ASSESSING AND APPORTIONING A RATE OR TAX OF FOUR HUNDRED THOUSAND POUNDS LAWFUL MONEY UPON THE INHABITANTS OF THIS STATE [caption title]
Providence: John Carter, [1780].. Broadside, 15 x 10 inches. Old folds. Lightly dampstained. Docketed on verso. Still, very good. A scarce Rhode Island broadside announcing the passage of a Revolutionary-era tax to be raised and collected from that state's inhabitants for the purpose of filling the state treasury. During the Revolution, each state levied its own taxes in order to contribute to the funding of the war effort. This broadside includes a list of the apportionment for each town. Providence itself is to be taxed £28,392, by far the most of any of the towns listed. NAIP and ESTC locate only three copies - Yale, Rhode Island State Library, and the Society of the Cincinnati. Scarce. BRISTOL B5171. SHIPTON & MOONEY 43880. ALDEN 834. ESTC W7865.
