"DISSENTIENT:

"Because the Bill appeared to me to require Revision and Re-commitment, inasmuch as the Lands lying within the Districts to which it applies differ exceedingly in Value, and do not derive equal Benefit from the Drainage, but they are nevertheless taxed per Acre without any Reference to the Difference in their Value, or to the Disparity of the Advantages they are likely to derive from the Measure; and this Principle, iniquitous in itself, appears to me yet more inadmissible from the Circumstance, that Acts of a similar Nature affecting the Drainage of Land, and especially those relating to the Bedford Level, have practically sanctioned an opposite and more equitable Principle, and apportioned the Tax either to the Value of the Lands or to the Advantage which they respectively derived from the Drainage.

"Vassall Holland."

Then the said Bill was read the Third Time.

The Question was put, "Whether this Bill shall pass?"
