Assembly Proceedings, March April 1671. 241

Deputys were Chosen according to the Tenour thereof. This
House Considering the Premisses do humbly Conceive that of
Right the whole Number of Delegates and Deputys so Chosen
ought to have been summoned to appear to serve as Dele-
gates Burgesses or Deputys for their several Countys Whose
Representatives are omitted to be Summoned to appear and
serve in this Assembly
Signed by order of the Lower House of Assembly
Robt Carvile Clk.

An Answer Whereunto was by this House returned to the
Lower House by the honourable Sr William Talbot Barrt Col.
Calvert & Mr Fitz-Herbert in these Words Viz.
The Upper House have taken into their Consideration the
paper sent to this House from the Lower House by Daniel
Clark Richard Woolman Thomas Herbert and William Burgess
Gent. And for Answer say that the true Reason why all per-
sons Elected in Kent Dorchester and Somersett Countys were
not by particular Writts Summoned to appear at this Assembly
was because the respective Sherriffs of the said Countys at the
time when they made their respective Returns desired the
Governour in the name of their respective Countys not to
charge their poor and new erected Countys with more Dele-
gates than formerly they used to have and therefore the Gov-
ernour sent particular Writts to no more persons in those
Countys than now have appeared
John Rousby Clk of the
Upper House of Assembly

Upon delivery and reading whereof the Lower House de-
clared that they gratefully owned the Governours Care and
Affection to them shewn in that particular

U. H.

Then the Lower House by Mr Clark desired of this House
a Copy of the Rt honourable the Lord Proprietary's Charter to
the intent they might not infringe his Lordships Prerogative
To which was Answered that they should have it

And the House Adjourned till nine of the Clock to Morrow
Wednesday the 29th March

The House met again Present as before. And in regard of
some Indisposition of Body in the Governour Adjourned this
House till to Morrow Morning Nine of the Clock

Thursday the 30th of March
The House met Present as before with the Governour
