  Nova Scotia Archives & Records Management - Poll tax rolls, 1791-1793
To deal with the provincial debt the legislature passed poll tax acts in 1791, 1792 and 1793 which levied a capitation tax on all adult males.
The amount of tax was based on a person's employment and their ownership of cattle or sheep and was collected until the legislation was repealed in 1796.
The legislation required multiple copies of the rolls, and after 1793, required that one copy be sent directly to the Treasury in Halifax.

  The Bermuda Copper of 1793 - Introduction
It seems Boulton was awarded the contract by the summer of 1793 and produced the coins during the next six months with the initial release in Bermuda at the end of April 1794.
An act signed by the governor of Bermuda, Henry Hamilton, on April 26, 1794, stated the coppers were to pass at the same rate as English halfpence, that is, twelve coppers to the shilling, and they were to be legal tender up to a limit of eleven coppers in any one purchase.
The ship is generally taken to represent the "Sea Adventurer," which was the ship depicted on the "Hogge" shilling; however it is also possible that it is simply a generic ship similar to the one on the Bahama copper.

This is a description of the gin on which Whitney made oath on October 28, 1793 and secured a patent from the United States government on March 14, 1794.
This policy proved to be a major business error, however, as they could not manufacture enough cotton gins to gin the rapidly increasing crops, nor could they raise sufficient capital to finance the purchase of the entire cotton crop.
In 1793, news of Whitney’s invention spread throughout the upland cotton growing area where much cotton had been planted even before his invention, in anticipation of someone inventing a successful gin.

With a population of approximately 55,000 in 1793, Philadelphia was America's largest city, its capital and its busiest port.
His fit of delirium had subsided, his reason had returned, yet the experience of the soi-disant doctor enabled him to foretell that his death would take place in a few hours; it did so, and in time for his corpse to be conveyed away by the cart at the hour appointed.
