Meeting of Malcontents Recorded

William Stephens recorded a meeting of Malcontents - the group of colonists opposed to the Trustees regulations concerning colonial Georgia:

“…In the Evening I under, stood there was a little Assembly of some of the Male- contents, at the House of one Townsend, where probably (as I conceived) no Good was contriving, especially as Aglionby was one of the Company, who was bred a Smatterer in the Law, lodges at present in that House, and is looked on as one of the greatest Mischief-makers in the whole Town ; being consulted with frequently by those of the Faction. …”
