Your Great Father will give you a plough and a horse to enable you to cultivate the earth. My Children. You say your Great Father has stopped the white men’s goods which used to come among you.

Right to petition. That it is the Right of the Subjects to Petition the King and all Commitments and Prosecutions for such Petitioning are Illegall. Standing Army.

Brothers! we live upon the same ground with you.
