The article presents a proposal from 1763 that discusses populating the tracts of uncultivated land in the U.S. The author suggests offerings for the people of Florida and the rest of his Majesty's Southern colonies on the continent of America, with inhabitants fit for cultivating the natural produce of the country. The author recommends using the Greeks of the Middle East, who are accustomed to a hot climate and who could supply the markets with all the commodities contemporary people have from Turkey and other regions. It also proposed to bring over some Armenians.
