To which is added A Remonstrance with the Court of Common-Council, On their presenting the freedom of the City to Dr. Price, for his Observations on Civil Liberty; Setting forth the inconsistency of their concern for the Liberties of the Americans, while they trample on the Rights and Privileges of their Fellow-Citizens
