This is a statement of the governor opposing the federal governments introduction of a national currency to replace all others then in common use, such as British or Spanish coinage and of the more common bank-issued paper currency. The governor directs all banks within the state to honor all the paper currency formerly used within the state and to ignore the federal government's attempts at making such currency illegal. The second item is also a printed broadside, entitled A List of the Internal Duties, Paid by each person in the 17th collection district of Pennsylvania, in the year 1816. with three columns of text listing the names and amounts paid in alphabetical order, beginning with David Allen and ending with John Waddle, and signed at bottom with printed signature James Patterson, Col.
