314 Assembly Proceedings, March 1650/1.

U. H.


there which might much preiudice vs, produced therevpon vnto
him the said Greene at a meeting of the Rest of our Councell
another deputation to himselfe from you the said William Stone
for the said Office of Lieutennant which you had prudently
left with him to be made vse of vpon any such occasion, vpon
the production whereof the former deputation to the said
Greene became voide. But the said Greene notwithstanding,
did not onely afterwards proceede to the Execution of the said
Acts and things, as our Lieutennant, but also (as wee are Credibly
informed) did insolently sweare, That although wee should send
directions to the Contrary hee would doe the same, whereby
hee shewed a very Great Neglect, and slighting of vs and our
authority there, which wee haue reason to resent the more from
him, because hee was one of the first Adventurers vnder vs to
that Plantation and hath often professed himselfe a faithfull
freind to vs, But by this Action as also by some other proceed-
ings of his in the Assembly there held at St Johns in Ano

p. 19

Domini one thowsand Six hundred fforty Seven (when hee pre-
ferred his owne Ends of Lucre and gaine before our honnor or
proffitt as appeares by a Certificat lately sent vnto vs, inclosed
in a letter from the Maior part of the vpper and lower Howse
of our Gennerall Assembly held there in Aprill last, A Coppie
of which Certificat is herevnto annexed) Wee have too much
cause to belieue that his Great professions of affection and
fidellity to vs were never reall, or in order to our good, but
meerely for his owne sinister Ends and intrest. Wee doe
therefore for the Reasons aboue mentioned Hereby declare
All Acts and things don by the said Greene as our Lieutennant
there when hee was deputed by you the said William Stone in
that office as aforesaid to be voide and Null, Excepting such of
them onely as you the said William Stone shall thinke fitt to
confirme for our honnor and the publick good of the Province.
And Wee doe also hereby from and after the publication here-
of within our said Province discharge the said Greene from
being of our Councell of State Commissioner of our Thresury
Receiuer or any other place or imployment vnder vs there, for
the future And from all the bennefitts and priviledges there-
vnto, or to any of the said dignities or offices belonging, Will-
ing and requireing you our said Lieutennant William Stone to
appoint some other fitting and trusty person to be our Receiuer
there till Wee shall otherwise dispose of that office And
because some other able persons who -are lately already come,
or may [per]happs shortly come from other Parts to reside [in]
our said Province before wee can have notice thereof, may be
fitt to be of our Councell of State there for thei[r] assistance
of you our said Lieutennant in the Government of our said
Province. Wee doe therefore hereby Grant power and author-
