 Paper Money 1723-1756   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
The paper money was to be printed in a manner similar to previous paper money acts, but the first emission was to be repaid by a four-year tax on all landed estates in the province, while the second emission was to be secured by a ten-year excise on liquor retailed in the province.
In the following year the 1756 Assembly declared that the £90,000 emitted in the previous year had already been expended and accordingly appropriated another £100,000 for the defense of the colony (the last mentioned appropriation was executed in two separate acts).
The General Loan Office continued to operate after 1756, but its primary function was restricted to collecting outstanding mortgages and to assisting in the sinking of the wartime paper money issues.

 GOVERNOR CHARLES LAWRENCE: BRITISH GENOCIDE - SCALP PROCLAMATION 1756   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
Between 1753 and 1756, many skirmishes occurred between the Mi'kmaq and British forces, as could be expected, since many of the Mi'kmaq Districts were still at war with them.
However, the reaction of Governor Lawrence in 1756, perhaps in retaliation for the assistance given to the Acadians, was typical of English behaviour towards the Mi'kmaq.
The "tribal liability" provisions of the treaties, which branded all Indians guilty, may have also been part of his rationalization when, on May 14, 1756, he issued a scalp proclamation.

 Letters from Voltaire, December 1756   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
[ Tallentyre's commentary: In 1756, the French, under the Duc de Richelieu, took Minorca from the English--the English fleet, under Admiral Byng, retiring before the French.
Britain forgot her traditional love of fair play, and wreaked her bitterness at being beaten on her native element, not on the blundering ministry who had commanded him impossibilities, but on Admiral Byng himself.
In December, 1756, George Keith, Earl Marischal of Scotland (whom Voltaire had met in Prussia), arrived at Les Délices to plead with the man who was fast becoming Humanitarian-in-Chief of Europe to defend Admiral Byng--now arraigned on a charge of treason and cowardice.

A more reasonable explanation of nativistic movements in both 1751 and 1756 seems to be the inference that the structure of the frontier Christian mission fostered native resistance to forced cultural change.
