has led me to a eoneluiion different from 1
that of your Kxeelleuey. Two year» be
f ( „ p ,h n Duke of York executed bi» grant
William Font, for the N«.-('.»Ge <!ir- '
c | Pi tllB Duke, who had derived hl« Idle
, lo ,h„ territory and government of New I
Jersey from the Crown, granted to the
prof)r |elor* the territory and government ,

the«« word»: "And el«o the free um of
ill h®ya, rlwrs, ®nd wafpr® leading unto
pr lying between the »«id I'remt.e. for :
u»»ig»tion. free trade, ti.lony or other

H»m Penn of »oy pert of Delaware, Peno,
claiming to ba one of the proprietor», of
Weat Jeraoy, with other proprietor», gave
a ayatam of goveromaot to the people who

Tho deed from the Dnke of York to ?

wa» executed beforo tho Duke had title *
thereto, and 110 conveyance wat afterward» ,

of Delaware wat never granted |o Fean *."
by the King or Duke. Thu right of gov

including the public right« of navigation
