4 Assembly Proceedings, October 13-29, 1773.

U. H. J.
Liber No. 36
Oct. 13

of a regular Seminary for our Youth, liberally instituted and sup-
ported, and to express my warmest wishes that it may engage your
Peculiar attention.

The frequent vexatious and expensive Law Suits concerning the
Boundaries of Land, occasioned by the variation of the Compass,
have been already severely felt, and, unless some remedy be applied,
must increase; wherefore I hope you will maturely consider the
nature and degree of this mischief, and put an effectual stop to it
by prudent Provisions.

The State and condition of the Publick Roads, the defects of the
present Laws for keeping them in Repair, and the general Ad-
vantage which will result from opening a communication between
our Merchants and distant settlers, deserve your attention. And I
have experienced so much inconvenience from the want of a precise
rule, by which the extent and Proper application of the penal Statutes
of England maybe sufficiently ascertained, that I must, again, ear-
nestly recommend this topick to your consideration.

p. 682

It will give me great pleasure to co-operate with you in ordaining
such Laws as may be conducive to the welfare of this Province,
as well in respect of the Subjects I have taken the Liberty to mention
as of any other that may occur.
