Very reasonable proposals for insuring all the sea-walls, or sea-banks, and marsh-grounds thereunto belonging, within the kingdom of England, principality of Wales, and adjacent parts of North-Britain, from loss and damage by overflowing tides and inundations of of the sea, or from any dreadful and destructive effects, which may be occasioned that way.
