p. 3

to Mr Speaker and the Members of this House in the following
Words viz:

Gentlemen of the Upper and Lower Houses of Assembly
I am to acquaint you that the Right Honble my Lords Guil-
ford and Baltemore have Expressed great Satisfaccon on
your proceedings in the last Generall Assembly as will fully
appeare, by their Ldps oblidging answers, to the Seperate
Addresses of both Houses and by their not Dissenting to any
one act passed in that Session.
I have Severall other matters to comunicate to you by their
Ldps Comands which I am of Opinion will be better explained
in the way of Message.

From the happy Conclusion of the last Session I pleased
my Self with the hopes, that the remaining part of that time,
I was permitted to be here in this Station wou'd have afforded
me much Satisfaction and Tranquility, and that I might have
been wholly at leasure, to have imployed my thoughts and
Actions, for the good and welfare of this province, as I had
faithfully done.
But such is the Restless and Turbulent Spirit, of some
Papists and their adherents, that they still Continue to Perse-
cute and Defame me, as they have obstinately done, from that
Period of Time, I oposed (as I was In duty bound) their
pretentions to an Equal Share of the Administration of this
Government with the Protestants, and Required those to
Qualifie themselves as the Law directs (and which they re-
fused to do) before I would permit them to Execute those
offices they by Deceiving, & Imposing on their Ldps had ille-
gally obtained, which upon better Information their Ldps in
their wisdom and Justice have since thought fit to deprive
them of
I am Authentickly informed, that Mr Carroll and Mr Mac-
nemara have made fresh Complaints to their Ldps against me,
