A sufficient Number of Members to compose a House being con-
vened at the House prepared by M.r Joshua Frazier for the Use of
the Publick, Ordered, That M.r Worthington and M.r Chamberlaine
do acquaint his Excellency the Governor therewith. They return
and acquaint M.r Speaker they delivered the Message.
Benedict Calvert and George Steuart, Esquires, from the Upper
House, acquaint M.r Speaker that the Governor requires the At-
tendance of the Members of the Lower House immediately in the
Council Chamber. M.r Speaker left the Chair, and, attended by the
Members of the Lower House, went to the Council Chamber, where
his Excellency made the following Speech:
Gentlemen of the Upper and Lower Houses of Assembly,
I Have Nothing at this Time particularly to propose to your Con-
sideration, which would not be a Repetition of what I recommended
at the Opening of last Session. But, having obtained Permission to
return to England, for a short Time on Account of some Affairs,
which require my personal Attendance there, I presumed it would
be agreeable to you to convene before my Departure, and therefore
now meet you, and shall, with the greatest Pleasure, be ready to
cooperate with you, in establishing such Regulations, as may be
conducive to the Welfare of this Province.
M.r Speaker, attended by the Members of the Lower House,
returned and resumed the Chair.
