May it please your Excy
We shall never think any Trouble to ourselves too great so that it
may Contribute to his Majesty's Service and altho' the Meeting of
an Assembly at this Season of the Year is very inconvenient Yet We
shall chearfully Consider the Matter recommended in your Excy's
Speech at the opening this Session.
At our last Sitting this House Exerted it self rather beyond the
Circumstances of the People by the ample provision then made for
three hundred Men who with their Officers We are highly pleased
to hear are safely Arrived at the place of Rendezvous in the province

of New York. We did not doubt but that his Majesty's pay to the

Soldiers and Officers (after being maintained here and at the Ex-
pence of the province sent to Albany) might well support them in
Provisions there. However that We may not be wanting in our Duty
to the utmost of our Ability We shall further Consider his Grace
the Duke of NewCastle's Letter and comply with his Majesty's Ex-
pectations so far as We Conceive them Expressed therein. Which
was Read & Assented to and Signed by Order of the House p
Edwd Sprigg Spr
Mess'o Stoughton and Sluddart weie sent to acquaint the Govt
that this House hath prepared an Address to him and desires to know
when and where he will receive it. They return and Acquaint Mr
Speaker the Govr was ready at his house to receive the Address
immediately.
