A brief view of the conduct of Pennsylvania, for the year 1755 : so far as it affected the general service of the British colonies, particularly the expedition under the late General Braddock : with an account of the shocking inhumanities, committed by incursions of the Indians upon the province in October and November ; which occasioned a body of the inhabitants to come down, while the assembly were sitting, and to insist upon an immediate suspension of all disputes, and the passing of a law for the defence of the country : interspers'd with several interesting anecdotes and original papers, relating to the politics and principles of the people called Quakers : being a sequel to a late well-known pamphlet, intitled, A brief state of Pennsylvania : in a second letter to a friend in London.
