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 con-
cluded, in respect to the Journal; and tho' Time will not permit you
to put the last Hand to that Affair, at present, yet I hope the Satisfac-
tion and Content of your Constituents, will induce you, at your next
Meeting, to remove every Occasion of Dispute, between the several
Branches of the Legislature. Your Disposition, which appears in
your Yesterday's Address, to lend your utmost Assistance to the
neighbouring Colonies, in Case of an Attack, gives me great Satis-
faction: 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 has 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 Lordship's Council of State, thought
fit to prorogue this Assembly to the second Tuesday in February
next; and you are to take Notice you are prorogued to that Day
Thus endeth this Session of Assembly, this Seventeenth Day of
November, Anno Domini 1753.
