Mr. Dorsey brings in the following Address to his Excellency, viz/

Oct. 6

To his Excellency Horatio Sliarpc, 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 perceive by your Excellency's Message of the First Instant,
that the Earl of Loudoun was not determined what Number of Sol-
diers he should send hither for Winter Quarters, and we apprehend
that the Number mentioned to you by his Majesty's Deputy-Quarter-
Master-General, will be greater than can be well accommodated within
this Province, where there are few Towns that have more than One
or Two Inns or Public Houses in them.

We therefore beg that your Excellency will present to his Lordship
our Inability to provide for so large a Number, and request, that his
Lordship will be favourably pleased to order no more than One
Regiment to this Province, which, in the Opinion of this House, are
as many as can be well accommodated with Winter Quarters here,
with any tolerable Ease to the People, and Satisfaction to the Troops.
On Motion, the Question was put, Whether the House approves
the said Address, or Not Resolved in the Affirmative.
