posed and that till her Pleasure be known an Ordinance of
Assembly be made to ascertain the Gauge of Tobacco Casks,
impose the Fines on the Coopers and Masters of Ships and per-
mit the Masters to put unsizeable Hogsheads on Shore but
cannot agree to an Act of Assembly being contrary to her
Majesty's positive Orders. And as to the Bill against Di-
vulgers of false News we shall not further insist thereon at
present and think it reasonable you should give your Answer
to Sr Thomas Lawrence's Complaint and address her Majesty
therein. But seeing her Majesty has laid her Commands
on his Excellency to propose a Law to you for settling those
Fines on the Secretary we cannot consent to any Law whereby
they be otherwise applyed till her Majesty is pleased to give
Leave therefor Signed p Order W Bladen Cl. Co.
