GOV. HUNTER TO THE BOARD OF TRADE, APRIL, 1716.

[ Lond. Doc. XX. ]

The numberof the Militia of this Province by my last account is 5060. I cannot say that the inhabitants increase in that proportion (at least) as they do in the neighbouring provinces where the purchases of land are easier had, than with us, great numbers of the younger sort leave Long Island yearly to plant in the Jerseys & Pensylvania.

SAME TO THE SAME. AUGUST, 1720.

[ Lond. Doc. XXI. ]

Query, what is the number of the Militia?
Answer, About Six thousand.

It is Remarkable that in New York there are above ten years 147 males & 995 females more than in Albany [and in Albany] 10^9 males & 188 females [under ten] more than in New York Which is Accounted for by this parts being a trading place & many of the males go abroad of course many females Lye fallor & perhaps in the County they are better breeders & I believe many younger.
