Sessions upon the Bill, entituled, An Act for Granting a Supply of
£45,000 for his Majesty's Service, and the more immediate Defence
and Security of the Frontier Inhabitants of this Province, and Emit-
ting £35,000 thereof in Bills of Credit, and Raising a Fund for sink-

Real and Personal, and Lucrative Offices and Employments, and
apprehending the same to be Irregular, and not altogether consistent
with their Rights, Do Resolve, That being earnestly desirous, at this
important Crisis, to do every Thing that could be reasonably expected
from them, for his Majesty's Service and their own Security, they
have been induced to proceed in a Manner not strictly agreeable to
Parliamentary Mode of Proceeding; and that therefore no Irregu-
larity of Proceeding, Concessions, or Consideration whatsoever, had
or made in Relation to that Bill, ought hereafter, by any Branch of
the Legislature, to be drawn into, or insisted upon, as a Precedent.
Ordered, That Mr. Goldsborough and Mr. Edward Gantt do
acquaint his Excellency the Governor, That no Public Business lies
now before this House to transact.
Samuel Chamberlaine, Esq; and Col. Edward Lloyd, from the
Upper House, acquaint Mr. Speaker, That the Governor requires the
