xviii Letter of Transmission.

of Kent, Denton of Anne Arundel, Henry Hall of Calvert, Brannock of Dor-
chester, Mathews (Chairman of the Committee on Aggrievances) and Shere-
dine of Baltimore, and Edward Sprigg of Prince George's.

The Message to the Upper House sent upon May 30, was approved by a
vote of 38 to 6—the highwater mark of the opposition to the Proprietary.
Only Harris and Hynson of Kent, Hanson of Charles, Henry of Somerset,
Hooper of Dorchester, and Gordon of Annapolis voted no. (Dulany was
absent.)

The Lower House determined, on June 2, not to pass the arms and ammuni-
tion act, by a vote of 34 to n. To the six negative votes of the last division
were now added Aisquith of St. Mary's, Middleton of Charles, Gale of Som-
erset, Trippe of Dorchester, and Dulany of Annapolis.

On June 3, the same question was voted upon in the last division of the
Session and was carried as before by a vote of 33 to 13—only four members
being absent. The minority was increased by the votes of Denton and Henry
Hall. We are fortunate to have record of the divisions. In Virginia, the
Proceedings give no such information.

In general, the factiousness of the Lower House must be condemned and

Ogle's judicious conduct praised.

In the appendix are printed several rather important papers which have not
previously appeared in the Archives concerning Pennsylvania boundaries, In-
dian troubles, and instructions from the Proprietary to his officials. The Index
was prepared by the editor in accordance with his usual custom.

Respectfully submitted,

Samuel K. Dennis

Bernard C. Steiner

John M. Vincent

Committee on Publication.
