The Lower House. 413


By the House of Delegates November 27th 1709

May it please your Honours
We have considered your Honours Speech and shall
diligently apply ourselves to raising a Supply to defray the
publick Charge of this present year We shall take it well all
Letters lately received be laid before us that we may know
her Majesty's Pleasure and Commands But as to the Matter
of Licenses the Ordinary-Keepers and the Tobacco paid for
them we have traced the Original and Progress thereof, and
neither find it a certain Duty to be always continued as such use-
ful Subject nor necessarily affixt to the Secretary's Office but only
sometimes by Accident permitted to those were Secretary's
And further we conceive it a Thing so contrary to Right and
Reason and the Equality and Indifference of Justice and so
nauseous and odious to Subjects to have a Tax imposed on one
Sort of Subjects to be applied to the enriching of one only
Subject who not so much as sets Pen to Paper for it, nor has
more than a bare Colour of Pretence, that we are sorry her
Majesty by the unwearied Sollicitations of Sir Thos Lawrence
require any Thing of us to which we cannot assent
We have prepared an Address about this and are desirous
your Honours to join
We thank your Honours for so readily and diligently taking
on you the Admn of Governmt according to her Majesty's
Royal Commission and we shall always be ready to support
you in it and join with you in what is our Duty that her Majes-
ty's Service and Welfare of the Province may not be impaired
in the Absence of a Captain General and to shew our Dutifulness
to her Majesty and good Affection to your Honours
Signed p Order W Taylard Cl. Ho. Del.
