246 Assembly Proceedings, Mar. 16, 1701/2-Mar. 25, 1702.

Original
Journal.

By his Excy the Govr and Councill in Assembly
March 19th 1701/2

Whereas In the late Act for regulateing Ordnarys there
was a good and beneficiall clause enacting that noe Ordry
keeper wtsoever within this province should creditt any Sailor
belonging to any Mercht Shipp or Vessell tradeing within this
province for more then the vallue of Twenty Shillings Currt
money dureing their stay here for the time of one voyage,
which said clause is now omitted in the prsent Law for regu-
lateing Ordrys But for that dailey experience shews the abso-
lute necessity of such a clause to restraine the said Ordnarys
from harbouring and entertaining such Saylers to the Great
Prejudice of the owners and masters of vessells to whom such
Sailors belong who generally neglect and delay to performe
their Duty's and obey the Lawfull comands of their Masters
to the Great disservice of his Matys and prejudice of trade
within this province. Preventing and impedeing the dis-
patch thereof and very often when such Sailors have spent
their wages in such Ordnarys occasioning and induceing them
to runn away and disert the vessells whereto they belong:
It is proposed that it be ordained and be it ordained by his
Majs Honbl Councill and the Dellegates of this prsent Genll
Assembly that noe Ordry Keeper w'soever within this province
Do prsume to harbour or entertain such Saylors to the neglect
of their service to their respective Comanders and prjudice of
the dispatch of any Shipp or Vessell thereby under the paine
and penalty of being suspended from keeping such ordnary and
that noe Ordry keeper whatsoever shall creditt any such sailor
for more than five Shillings dureing any one voyage, under
the penalty of Looseing his Debt and being fined to our Lord
the King five pounds Sterling whereof one halfe to the in-
former the other halfe to the vestry of the Parrish where such
Ordnary is kept.
