The true interest of Great Britain, Ireland and our plantations.

The true interest of Great Britain, Ireland and our plantations. Or, A proposal for making such an union between Great Britain and Ireland, and all our plantations, as that already made betwixt Scotland and England. Whereby the attempts and endeavours of foreign powers and domestick factions, towards dividing, disuniting, weakening and dismembering us, may be prevented. And a new method of husbandry by greater and lesser canals; whereby the present value and product of our lands and waters may, in five or six years, be, at an avarage, at least quadrupled: the publick debts may be paid off; and such of our taxes, as are most burthen some and hurtful to our trade and industry, removed. And all this, at an expence of money and labour, at the ulmost extent, within Britain, not exceeding three or four years of the ordinary expence of money and labour, now, at an avarage, annuality bestowed upon our lands and waters. With proposals for removing the hurtful parts of the heretable courts and jurisdictions, and of the present holdings and tenures of lands in Scotland; and other such obstructions to all good law, power, government, union, industry and improvements whatsoever.
