New York, 15.th April 1761.
Sir,
I am to own the Receipt of Your Letter of the 30.th March, by
which I see that You had Issued a Proclamation requiring the As-
sembly of the Province of Maryland, to meet the 7.th of this Month
(which, You Say, is as soon as they can possibly come together)
when You were to Communicate to them the Contents of M.r
Secretary Pitt's Letter of the 17.th December, and mine of the I5.th
March; and that You would press them in the most earnest manner
to Comply with His Majesty's Requisition; As Eight days are now
Elapsed since that on which the Assembly was to meet, I hope
very soon to be Informed of their Resolves, and trust that they will
be entirely Conformable to the King's Expectation; & meanwhile
I am, with great Truth,
Sir,

Your most Obedient
His Excellency Gov :r Sharpe. Humble Servant,
Jeff: Amherst.
