We are convinced that the Happiness of all People depends greatly
on the Goodness of the Laws they live under, and are so fully
satisfied from your Excellencys past Conduct that nothing is more
agreable to you than promoting the Ease and Interest of the People
immediately under Your Care, that We shall with the utmost dili-
gence contribute our Assistance for the Amendment of Our Laws
and doing every other thing that will be serviceable to the Province
