Mr Speaker and you Gentn Delegates.
Since the Present Session is Ended (wherein you have had
no delay from me or this Board) I recommend to you the Peace
of the Severall Countys you returne to, which I thinke at this
time Absolutely necessary to redress the many Rogueryes
which have been hatched & are carrying on to disturbe us.
When I am well Satisfied the Armes & Amuniton in this
Place are well Secured without the Present Guarde I'll dismiss
the Soldiers, being as Tender of puting the Country to un-
necessary Charges as any Gentn that sitts in the Assembly.
By the Advice of her Majestys Councill I shall speedily
send a boat well manned to demand from the Goverment in
Carolina some Prisoners fled from the Justice of this Province.
I could well have wished You to have joyned with us hear-
tily in the Matter of Itinerant Justices so kindly recomended
by her Majtye But since You have not shall with the Advice of
her Majestys honble Councill here Settle that Matter as I am
This seems like to be the last Session of this Present As-
sembly as to the Continuance according to the Course of Parlia-
ments in England; Yet lest some Suddain Emergency should
happen have thought fitt to Prorogue You. And you are ac-
cordingly hereby Prorogued untill the 14th day of June next
from which time You shall have due notice of Your meeting
or being further Prorogued; But in Case You Shall not
be Convened before the fifth of September next This present
Generall Assembly is now declared to be then dissolved.
