Dr Shaw refuses to make out a tax blank for Him or It. Dr Shaw says she is neither a "Him" or "It" and the blank calls for a return of the personal property held in trust by "him" or "it", and it appears that unless the Delaware county commissioners would have some blanks printed with the pronoun her inserted they were likely to have a case of law on their hands. Dr. Shaw told her friends at her home, Moylan Del. Co. Pa that "taxation without representation is tyranny and she would not help anyone to tax her".
