Gentlemen of the Upper & Lower Houses of Assembly
U. H. J.
Liber No. 34
I cannot but take the Occasion, before we conclude this Session
to Return you thanks for the Hopes you have given me of an Easy
Administration, by Your General behaviour during this long Assem-
bly as well as the particular Regard you have Shewn to myself ;
Indeed the Harmony which Seemed to Subsist between your two
houses induced me to think every Thing would be amicably concluded
in Respect to the Journal and the Time will not permit you to put
the last Hand to that Affair at present yet I hope the Satisfaction
and Content of your Constituents will Induce you at your next meet-
ing to remove every Occasion of dispute between the Several
Branches of the Legislature, Your Disposition which Appears in
your yesterdays Address to lend your utmost assistance to the neigh-
bouring Colonies in case of an Attack gives me great Satisfaction
and I am persuaded you will lay no farther Stress on those objections
to the Revival of the Law for Arms which have been so fully
Answered by my Predecessors
As the welfare of the Province have been your Sole Care here, I
doubt not but your Influence in the Several Counties will contribute
to the same which I again assure you, no one can be more truly con-
cerned for than myself.
I have with the Advice of his Lordships Council of State thought
fit to prorogue this Assembly to the Second Tuesday in February
