Excerpt from Maryland, Its Resources, Industries and Institutions: Prepared for the Board of World's Fair Managers of Maryland

The stamp tax, imposed in 1765, met with violent opposition in Maryland, as it did everywhere, the stamp distributor being compelled to ?y the province, and the stamps were shipped back to England, as no one would use them.

About this time the long-standing dispute about the northern bound ary was finally settled, and two eminent English mathematicians, Charles Mason and Jeremiah Dixon, were engaged by the Proprietaries of Maryland and Pennsylvania to run the line between the provinces and mark it by suitable monuments. They began their labors in 1763 and continued them for four years. The line thus run is the famous Mason and Dixon's line, dividing the Northern from the Southern States.

Frederick, the sixth and last Baron of Baltimore, died in 1771, leaving the province to his illegitimate son, Henry Harford, a minor.
