224 Assembly Proceedings, March 22-April 11, 1760.

U. H. J.
Liber No. 35
April 10

endeavours to Promote his Majestys Service is essentially the same
with the five Bills we had in as many Sessions before Dissented to,
and that this Bill which they seem Determined to represent as
Justifiable upon the Principals of our Constitution and Consistent
with their rights and Priviledges is the same with that his Majestys
Attorney General in the Opinion Communicated to General Assembly
at the Commencement of this Session held to be Absurd unreason-
able against the Duty we owe to the Mother Country, a Breach of
Publick Faith, Subversive of the very foundations of the Maryland
Constitution, and to have a Tendency to Erect a Power and Author-
ity in the Lower House which neither the Crown nor the Parliament
would ever suffer them to Exercise
As our Objections have never been refuted and no Attempt hath
been made this Session to Obviate them and no good reason or
decent cause has been assigned for slighting M. Pratts Sentiments, so
we rest assured that tho we cant escape the Censure of the Lower
House our Conduct will not be condemned by those who can Ex-
amine with Candour and will determine without Partiality
Benj; Tasker President
