The principles of an equitable and efficient system of finance:
founded upon self-evident, universal, and invariable principles, capable of diminishing taxes and poor-rates, reviving and permanently supporting agriculture, trade, commerce, wealth, & happiness, demonstrating that the existing System of Finance, is capricious, impolitic, and improvident: injurious to liberty, property, and legislation: proving the necessity of repealing all existing taxes, both general and local: and adopting one, simple, equitable, & efficient, grounded upon a scale, just, wise, and unchangeable. /

"By the adoption of this plan, the dread of the rich would be removed, the distress of the poor relieved, and the confidence of all restored: founded upon the same system, (and with a view of exciting the Energy of Agricultural Industry,) a commutation of tithes is proposed, by which the property of the church would be guaranteed, the dignity of the clergy augmented, and the irritation of the people tranquilized: connected with the same plan, are more equitable and easy modes of collecting parochial and county assessments: a proposition for removing turnpike gates, educating the poor, &c. Together with an appendix, containing numerous tables and calculations corolleries, &c. An introductory address to the members of both Houses of Parliament, and a preface."
