Abstract:

Contemporary copy of an unsigned and undated petition from the citizens of New Hampshire to the King of Great Britain (George II), requesting that New Hampshire be joined with the province of Massachusetts Bay and protesting the actions of New Hampshire's London agent, John Thomlinson, who had petitioned the King for a separate governor.

In this copy addressed to John Thomlinson, the petitioners argue that New Hampshire's poverty and sparse population make it impossible to maintain a separate governor or provide for defense against the French and Indians.
