Sirs in this situation, what have we to live on: No money to be had; our estates daily posted and sold Surely your Honors are no strangers to the distresses of the people but do know that many of our good inhabitants are now confined in jail for debt and for taxes Will not the people in the neighboring states say of this state: although the Massachusetts [people] boast of their fine Constitution, their government is such that it devours their inhabitants? “. . . If your Honors find anything above mentioned worthy of notice, we earnestly pray that [the state legislature] would point out some way whereby the people might be relieved.” Petition from the town of Greenwich to the Massachusetts state legislature, 1786 Which of the following claims did the residents of Greenwich use to most support their argument that they should be “relieved” by the Massachusetts legislature from the situation described in the petition?
