1827-02-23, Message of Gov. Lincoln on the Northeastern Boundary
H.R. No. 60 A message of His Excellency, Levi Lincoln, transmitted to the Legislature on February 23, 1827. Boston : True and Greene, State
Printers, 1827. The Lieutenant-Governor in New Brunswick complained to the British Ambassador in Washington who complained to the Secretary of State who
sent copies of everything to Governor Lincoln. The Lieutenant-Governor thought surveys being made by Maine and Massachusetts were encroaching on
disputed territory. Governor Lincoln said, "When rightly understood by the British government, they will cease to be regarded as acts of aggression ...."
He forwarded all the documents to the legislature and suggested not building the surveyed road right away, just to sooth wounded feelings while the
state waited for the endless treaty negotiations to conclude. [Pages 3 and 4 are either missing or were never there and p. 13 is illegible.] (Digitized
from a microfilm copy of title originally held by the Massachusetts State Library).
