equal hearty and warm Zeal for the Honour and Glory of the Crown
of Great Britain and every advantage that may arise to our Mother
Country, as well as for our own immediate safety.
The Letters from the Governors of New York and New England,
which your Excellency has been Pleased to lay before us, shall have
a due Consideration; and we hope that our Result thereon, as well
as in all other Matters relating to the Trust reposed in us, will to
every judicious, impartial, and Honest man, manifest our Zeal
Loyalty and Prudence
As we are very sensible that His Majesty's Service on the Present
Occasion requires the utmost Dispatch, we are therefore determined
to give it such as it's nature will admit of, in Order to which, your
Excellency's laying before this House the Letter from his Grace the
Duke of Newcastle, or other His Majesty's Commands which relate
to the Part we are to Act, will greatly contribute. Col King and
Mr Barnes are sent to Acquaint his Excellency that this House hath
prepared an Address to him and desires to know when and where he
will be pleased to receive it: They return and acquaint Mr Speaker

ence Chamber.
