mond sent to the Council to acquaint that Board that a suffi-
cient Number of Members are met to make a House.

the Honble President will send for them by some Members
of that Board

Honble President commands him and the House to attend
him at the Council Chamber

P- 378

Mr Speaker and you Gentlemen of the House of Delegates.
Nothing of Consequence happening since the last Session,
have with the Advice of her Majestys Honble Council as well
as by my own Inclination delayed convening you till this Time.

requiring me at the first Assembly which shall meet after the
Receipt thereof to signify to you in the most earnest Manner
that notwithstanding the several Orders made in Council and
Letters her Majesty has been pleased to write in his Behalf
after his Case had been fully examined by the Comô of Trade
and Plantations and the Attorney General who all agreed in
representing the Hardships thereof has hitherto met with no
Compliance for which Reason her Majesty is pleased to signify
her Will and Pleasure and to command me to acquaint you
she expects you should forthwith pass a Law for regulating
