The Lower House. 421

Alienation fines on Devises of Lands as contrary to the Express
condition and Words of Our patents
We have many other Aggrievances besides what are here
Enumerated but because it might be too Tedious to mention them
particularly in this Address we have caused the several Reports of
our Committee of Aggrievances concurred with by our House
together with our Address to your Lordships Governor and other
proceedings on the same Head to be laid before your Lordship to
which We beg leave to refer and by the Perusal whereof your Lord-
ship may be at large Informed
We must acknowledge it to be a matter of great concern to us
that we are Obliged to make An Application of this Kind to your

done in the Instances here mentioned
We therefore most Earnestly Intreat your Lordship to relieve us

and we can with Confidence assure you that as we always shall be
peaceable faithful Subjects to his Majesty so you shall find us Dutiful
Tennants to your Lordship and willing and desirous to promote
your Interest and pay you every thing which of Right appertains to
Ordered that the aforesaid Addresses be not delivered to the
printer to be printed or published
Mr Clayton appears in the House to day
Edmund Jenings Esqr and Colo Gale from the Upper House ac-
