1774, after LORDDUNMORE war, Richard Henderson "was at last ready for his land scheme." Disregarded the royal proclamation of 1763 and the laws of VA and NC. His TRANSYLVANIA company proposed to deal directly with the Indians for 20,000,000 acres, set up a new 14th colony, retain large tracts for his own estates, sell the rest to settlers with a perpetual quit-rent for every acre, and retain special rights in the government. "The idea was romantic, magnificent, feudal, and there might be a fortune in it." Only because of the coming revolution was he not promptly suppressed. (BAKELESS:83,84)
