228 Records Illustrating the History of Maryland

P. R. O.

B. I. Vol. 2,
B. E.

Inhabitants fairly elected by the people did meet and altho the
Protestants kept all the said Articles inviolable yet notwith-
standing the said Deputy Governors endeavoured by all
wicked meanes possible to pervert and draw the people from
their Allegiance to their Majesties and stirr them up to Rebel-
lion and obstruct the said Convention from settling the Coun-
trey in Peace and quietness untill order from their Majesties
which notwithstanding they proceeded unto. And first of all
pursuant to their Duty they caused their Majesties to be pro-
claimed and drew up an Address to them and then proceeded
to settle the Province untill Orders from them, as first to settle
the Military and civill Officers continueing all Protestants in
their places and removeing all Papists and putting Protestants
in their Rooms pursuant to their Majesties Declaration and
continued all the Tempoary Laws in the Province laid the
publique Levy which (notwithstanding the great occasion) was
the least that had beene in that Province for many yeares tho
they also paid the debts of the old Governmt out of the same
and then drew all up into an Ordinance of Assembly whereby
those matters do more fully appeare, after which the Deputy
Govern" and severall of the Petitioners their Adherents (being
of the Lord Baltemores Cofnission) did on the behalfe of King
James endeavour all they could to raise Rebellion against
their Majesties in all the parts of the Province In the opposeing
of which if any received Damage it is more then those Re-
spond'5 know or ever heard of before there being none done
by them or their Order And do verily beleive there was none
done by any other But if any such there were lett them prove
the same aga' those that did it, and the Law is open for their
Remedy the Convention never giveing authority thereto.
As to that other part of the charge in the said Paper of
acting contrary to their Majesties Letter These Respondts
humbly conceive that the Convention hath given sufficient
Answer in their last Letter to their Majesties unto which they
do in all humility desire to be referred.
As to the generall charge of Forgery in the latter part of the
aforesaid Petition to his Majesty These Respondts know not to
whom it relates and do therefore look upon it to be a notori-
ous Falsehood forged by themselves
And the Respondts do humbly desire that the Depositions
Evidences and Papers relateing to the prmisses ready to bee
produced to this Right HonbIe Board may be read and heard.

Mr Coode &c:
Answere to the petition
Read the 22d Dec: 160,0.
