p. 99

Post-Meridiem.
The House met according to Adjournment, &c.

Mr. Beall appeared in the House.
Philip Hammond, Esq; from the Committee of Laws, brings in,
and delivers to Mr. Speaker, an Address to his Excellency, which
was Read, Approved, and ordered to be Ingrossed.
Philip Hammond, Esq; from the Committee of Laws, brings in,
and delivers to Mr. Speaker, the following ingrossed Address, viz.
To his Excellency Horatio Sharpe, Esq; Governor and Commander
in Chief in and over the Province of Maryland.
The humble Address of the House of Delegates.
May it please your Excellency,
We, his Majesty's most dutiful and loyal Subjects, the Delegates
of the Freemen of Maryland, in Assembly convened, return your
Excellency our Thanks for your kind Speech at the Opening of this
Session, and the Letter and Estimate laid before us.
We shall take the Subject Matter therein recommended, under our
immediate and most attentive Consideration, and flatter ourselves
our speedy Resolutions thereupon, will fully demonstrate our Readi-
ness to embrace the Opportunity that now presents itself, of mani-
festing an unshaken Loyalty to the best of Kings, a just Sense of
his royal and paternal Care of all his Subjects, however remote from
the happy Influence of his more immediate Protection; and at the
same Time, a steady Adherence, and immoveable Attachment, to the
true Interests, Rights and Privileges, of those from whom our
Power of forming Resolutions is delegated.
We still continue (as we always have been) in the strongest
Inclinations to do every Thing reasonably within our Power, which
may contribute to this laudable End; and entertain the most sanguine
Hopes that we shall not now, in the Course of our Proceedings, meet
with any Rock upon which we shall split, or which may in the least
obstruct the granting Supplies, with the Dispatch necessary to render
effectual our sincere Intentions for his Majesty's Service, and the
common Safety of Ourselves and Fellow-Subjects.
Which was read and assented to, and signed, by Order of the
House, by the Honourable Speaker.
Ordered, That Mr. Bordley, and Mr. Murdock, do acquaint his

p. 100

Excellency, that this House hath prepared an Address to be pre-
sented to him, and desires to know when, and where, he will please
to receive it: They return, and acquaint Mr. Speaker, that his Excel-
lency was pleased to signify, he would be ready to receive the Address
immediately, in the Conference Chamber.
Ordered, That Philip Hammond, Esq; and Thirteen more, do
present the Address to the Governor.
