This foot note contained in document PJA02d013
6. This paragraph is the first of three passages in the “Examination of the Claim of New York” entered at the end of the 3d and 5th sections on Massachusetts with a symbol indicating where it should be inserted in the text. This and the next two passages, each marked with an “*,” (see notes 10
, below) were probably added by the committee of 1783. Two other passages marked with asterisks (see notes 14
, below) are in the nature of footnotes which may have existed in JA's original report.
The first of these paragraphs, whether a contribution of JA or of the committee of 1783, parallels material taken from The Case of the Provinces.
