          Appendix to Council Proceedings, 1696—1729. 609


      I have heretofore mentioned the necessity of Resurveying c. z.

    your Mannors, without which much of them will soon be lost; p. 20

    many daily Incroach on them, and the Evidences that Can

    only prove bounded trees, as daily grow Old and Drop of;

    Your Orders to your Agent therein will I think be of the

    Utmost Consequence to yr Landed Interest, and not for the

    Above reasons to be Delayd; Your Mannor of Pangayah is

    they say already Swallow'd up, for people pretend, that no

    one knows where to find it.

      Ned Continues Very thin, and his Cough and Spitting very

    troublesome, I much fear the Approaching Winter will hardly

    relieve it.

      The Cold Season is a relief to me; Wee have been lately

    up to Philadelphia on a Visit to Govr Gordon where wee

    were received in a particular Handsome manner, but I was

    Extreamly ill both there and in my whole Journey, since I

    Came home, I have had a Severe flux, but it has carried of

    the Cholick, and with the Sharpness of the weather I begin p. 21

    to have a little appetite, which for the Summer Six months I

    was an Utter stranger to, living that time I think in Continued

    Misery and pain, but as yet there are few things that will stay

    upon my stomach.

      I beg leave to remind you of a matter, which by Mr Lowe's

    Death, possibly you may be a Stranger to, Viz. That after the

    Last hearing before the Attorney and Sollicitor Generall

    about the 3 Lower Counties, a Great many Papers of yours

    relating to that Dispute, were left for their Perusal and per

    haps may Still be there.

      Pursuant to your last powers given me I have Sworn Col

    Rider of the Councill, who I hope will give Satisfaction; I shall

    to the Utmost of my power recommend Such to that Board, as

    will be of most Credit and use to it, and follow your Advices

    thereto, as Close as possible; but believe me, such men as ought

    to be Chosen, are not Easily got, and few men Care for an

    Empty Honour attended with trouble without some recom


      There is not places in the Government Sufficient for all, p. 22

    and the Country refuse still to pay them Even for Attendance

    when Necessary;

      It is in Vain now to Expect to gain the Country to do it;

    they say the 15 pence pr Hgd. for the Support of Govern

    ment, raises such a Considerable sum more than the Salary

    settled on the Govt that you Ought to pay yr Councill out of

    it, if you think they Deserve any reward for their Attendance,

    and this is preachd with the more Spitefull View, that the

    Councill should think themselves Slighted by you, whilst you

    refuse to pay them for Attendance; They farther urge that the
