Beer, British Colonial Policy, 1754-1765 (14528 words)
The ablest colonial governor of the time, William Shirley of Massachusetts, was, however, strongly in favor of a parliamentary union coupled with parliamentary taxation of the colonies.
Though all these plans, whether of colonial union or of parliamentary taxation, were intended for a permanent military establishment in the colonies in time of peace, their ultimate object was to effect the security of the colonies in the event of war.
The governor, Francis Bernard, wrote to Pitt on March 20, 1759, that New Jersey showed her zeal for the cause in voting 1000 men, as her population was only 70,000 to 80,000 and as she was spending yearly on the war £70,000, whereas Pennsylvania which was five times as populous, raised only £100,000.
