in reforming the manners and Insolency of the people of this
province That the making of Laws was very insignificant

seemed to be much neglected by the Magistrates there being
such an apparent overflowing of vice therefore Recom-
mended and gave strict charge to such members of the
House as were Magistrates or bore Rule within any of the
Places for which they were chose that they would take due
care to see all the Laws put in strict prosecution especially
those against Drunkenness Blasphemy prophane Swearing
