Mr Speaker and you Gentlemen Delegates,
Since our Meeting now is by her Majestys especial Com-
mand I do doubt not but the great good things so earnestly
recommended to your serious Consideration for the Good &
Welfare of this Province will be unanimously approved of
and assented to by you it's Representatives that what her
Sacred Majesty has so wisely and graciously concerted for
your future Happiness and Grandeur may enrich yr and suc-
ceeding Generations.
Gent. No Monarch that ever swayed the English Sceptre
has had a more tender Regard for all her Subjects than her
present Majesty and tho she has been engaged in a great
chargeable war ever since her Accession to the Throne her
Princely generous Endeavours have not been confined to
Britain alone but an unwearied Tenderness is diffused over
all her Majesty's Colonies & Plantations abroad aud more
especially to us and our Neighboring Planters witness her
Majesty's Timely Interposition with the Czar of Muscovy for
if that Grant or Project had not been stopt you might in good
Measure bid adieu to the Tobacco Trade in America whilst
the divided Interest & Sentiments of Merchants at home in
Relation to the setting up and curing the Circasion Tobacco's
had speedily crowned our Ruin
Next her Majesty's opening a Trade with Spain which has
already so very good success many Spanish Vessels have been
cleared in London that brought their Wool and Commodities
