U. H. J.
Liber No. 34
May 10

Benjamin Tasker Esqr attended by the Members of this house
presents to his Excellency the Address of this house in the word

To His Excellency Samuel Ogle Esqr Governor & Commander in
Chief in and Over the Province of Maryland.
The Humble Address of the Upper house of Assembly
May it please Your Excellency
We beg Leave to return your Excellency Our unfeigned Thanks
for the Speech you was pleased to make to Us at the meeting; of both
Houses of Assembly this Session, and it is with hearts full of Grati-
tude We acknowledge his Majestys care and Wisdom in the Estab-
lishing of a General Peace, the Advantages whereof we hope this
Province will partake and that We may soon feel the happy Effects
of it in the Advancement of Our Staple
The General Approbation which the late Law we passed for In-
spection of Tobacco has met with at home is a convincing proof to
Us, of the Expediency of that Law, and we make no Doubt but
Experience will Render it as agreeable to every Body here: We are
very sensible that the best Laws without a faithful & due Execution
of them must fail in some measure to answer the Salutary Ends pro-
posed by them, and therefore if in this it shall be found that some
further Encouragement is Necessary to induce Men of worth and
Character, to take upon them the office of Inspectors We shall readily
concur in giving our Assistance therein, as well as in renewing such
temporary Laws as may be wanted for the Publick good
And we make bold to assure your Excellency that We shall En-
deavour as far as in us Lies to Proceed with such unanimity as may
give the greatest dispatch to Business and thereby Lessen the Ex-
pences of our meeting Benja Tasker Presdt
