The Quebec Act...
Item # 646161
June 11, 1774
THE LONDON CHRONICLE, England, June 11, 1774 Page 6 has a report from North Carolina focusing on the governor not approving a bill for the establishment of the Superior Courts. This is followed by other news from America.
Page 7 has: "Abstract of the Quebec Bill" which points out the various particulars of it. The provisions of the Quebec Act were seen by the colonists as a new model for British colonial administration, which would strip the colonies of their elected assemblies and promote the Roman Catholic faith in preference to widely-held Protestant beliefs. It also limited opportunities for colonies to expand on their western frontiers, by granting most of the Ohio Country to the province of Quebec.
The back page has several mention of the Quebec Act. Eight pages, 8 1/2 by 11 inches, nice condition.
