we were not to expect more Civil treatment from them for the future
then they had been pleased to Give the last member of our House that
we sent to them
We therefore prepared a Civil and Suitable Answer to their
Message and sent it on thursday last by our Clerk as we had pro-
posed to send and they had agreed to Receive but when he applyed
for Leave to present it was refused and Obliged to return with it we
sent it again on Friday last and Our Clerk waited to deliver it above
an Hour after he had Given Notice to the Serjeant attending the
Lower house of his having a Message to deliver from us but was
again refused an Opportunity to deliver it & Obliged to return with it
As we are Convinced what we have done is well warranted by
Reason and Justice and by the Practice of Our Neighbouring Gov-
ernments we flatter Ourselves with the Satisfaction of being Justi-
fied in the opinion of your Excellency and every reasonable and
Candid man but as by the Refusall of the Lower House to receive
our Message from the hand of our Clerk with which method they
had declared they would be very well Content an intire stop is put
to the Communication of the two Houses & to the publick Business
we make this humble application to your Excellency with a full
Assurance of your Excellencys Readiness to interpose your Author-
ity in such manner as may best prevent a further needless Expence
and Burthen to the Province Benja Tasker, President
