1353. COLONIES (The American), Parliamentary encroachments.—[continued].

What powers the Parliament
might rightfully exercise over us,
and whether any, had never been declared

little regarded as the original right, restored
by it, had been. The Navigation Act was
reenacted by Charles II., and was enforced.

the extension of their commerce, and of submitting
to every duty or regulation imposed
with that view, that we had ceased to complain
of them.—
