C: Baltimore Gentlemen,

L. H. J.

I Have Received your Address from Mr Paris, and you may be
assured of my having your Welfare sincerely at Heart, and of my
promoting it upon all Occasions to the utmost of my power.
As for the other Address you mention containing a Complaint of
many Aggrievances, it has not yet been presented to me; When it is,
I shall not be wanting, to contribute all in my Power to Redress the
real Grievances; and you may be Assur'd I shall always Consult with
and put confidence in the Candid Informations, and benevolent Dis-
positions, of the Honest and disinterested People of Maryland, and
as I have ever done, so I shall continue, to Dissent to any Law I
shall think not for the Public good.
I must own, I am at a loss how to conceive, proper Access to the
Public Registries of the Province could be denied you; and you may
be assured I shall have no objection to your Taxing your selves,
