4 pages, 8vo. Pagination: [1] 2-3 [4]. A frail survival: paper grubby, discoloured and dogeared, with a few closed tears and some fraying to extremities, but the text clear and legible. A space at the beginning of the document for the insertion of the petitioner's name in manuscript has been left blank. Begins: 'The Petition of and all other Owners of Land subject to Mortgages, and other pecuniary payments charged on it before its depreciation in consequence of the return to the present Gold Currency, by which the value of every denomination of Money is so much increased'. The petitioner states (p.1) that he 'hath for forty years, with attention and concern, observed the changes that have taken place in the condition of the middle and lower classes of society, and his conviction is, that most of the distress and calamities that they have experienced durinng that period may fairly be imputed to the Revenue Laws, and the changes that have taken place in the Currency'. He calls for the appointment of 'a Committee to inquire into the practicability of the redemption of the Public Debt', and 'an Act to suspend all proceedings at Law and in Equity, for the recovery of sums of money charged on land, and the sale of land, by persons having any claims to pecuniary payments out of it, until the redemption of the Public Debt be effected'.
