Settlement of Maryland, 1629-1637. 43

But because this advancement of the King's revenue in
Virginia cannot bee effected, unless the Lord Baltimore do
repaire and reside some time there, which he cannot with his
safety well do, except hee bee authorised and enabled by
having the government of that country, whereunto, though
Mr Secretary perceives the Lord Baltimore hath no ambition
or affection, yet for the advancement and perfounnance of this
service hee doth verily thinke, that upon his Majties command
the Lord Baltimore would accept of the government, and two

signification of his pleasure, make his present repayre from
the Country, to give him perticular and perfect satisfaction, of
the meanes and manner, to raise this increase of Revenue.
