298 Assembly Proceedings, Nov. 29-Dec. 15, 1708.

L. H. J.

one third of the intrinsick Value nothwithstanding any Law
we can make in the Province wherefore we cannot consent
thereto. Signed p Order W Bladen Cl. Co.

Mr Gale from the Committee of Laws enters the House
and delivers Mr Speaker an Address to her Majesty, and a

Walter Smith from the Committee of Aggrievances
enters the House and delivers Mr Speaker the following
Report Viz.
