4 Assembly Proceedings, Oct. 23-Nov. 3, 1711.

U. H. J.

also to Communicate to you the Rt honble the Lords of Trade
and Plantations reasons for moving her Majesty for her Dis-
allowance of the Several Acts passed in the Assembly held in
the year 1709 And that they have upon that occasion signi-
fyed if any of those Laws be absolutely necessary for the good
Governmt & Welfare of the Province they may be reenacted.
I doubt not but you will believe some of them are of Con-
sequence and am Convinced of your good Inclination to serve
your Country

p. 692

Gentlem. Since you are apprised that I am instructed not
to pass any Acts but what are immediately necessary for the
Peace and Welfare of the Province without her Majesty's par-
ticular order for that Purpose I am induced to believe you
will prudently forbear any fruitless Essay of that kind whereby
you may prolong this Session and add to the Charge of the
Province
I can truly say I have not only been careful of placing as
little Charges on the Country as I could or as the Emergency
of Affairs has obliged but have used my Endeavours to re-
trench them as much as I might. Therefore have great
Reason to expect that you Gentlemen will use your utmost
Efforts to dispatch the necessary Business of this Session in a
few days by which you will most lively demonstrate to your
Several Electors the true Regard you have of their Interest in
putting them to as little Charge as may be especially now at
a time when our unhappy Circumstances are not in a Condi-
tion to bear any extraordinary Expence
After which Mr Speaker and the Delegates took Leave and
repaired to their House
The Board adjourned until eight of the Clock to morrow
morning

Wednesday October 24th 1711.
The Council in Assembly Sate Present
The Honble President
Col Coursey Lt Col Greenberry
Col Ennalls Lt Col Addison
Sam Young Esqr Lt Col Richd Tilghman
Col Thos Greenfield Capt John Dorsey
