298 Assembly Proceedings, May 14-June 6, 1719.

U. H. J.

Who Return & say they Delivered the Message
The Gentlemen of the Lower house thereupon present
Robert Ungle Esqr as their Speaker with whom his Excy
Declares himself very well Satisfyed.
And Opens this Sessions with the following Speech Viz.

Gentlemen of the Uper & Lower Houses of Assembly
I should not have Convened you at this Season of the year
if the necessity of Affaires did not make it Absolutely Re-
quisite, And that I Promise myself the same assiduous &
unanimous Application to the Dispatch of Business for the
Publick Good, will be Emulated & Exerted as well in this as
in the late happy Assemblys, I have had the pleasure to meet
and part with.

P. 4

I have it in Comand from my Lords Guilford and Pro-
prietor to Lett you know how Gratefull your Asserting the
Publick Authority of their Courts and the psons of their
Ministers is to their Lpp and also to Acquaint you that the
pceedings of the Last Assembly was for the most part Ap-
proved by them.
Their Lordships have thought fitt that the Act made in
the Last Sessions Entituled an Act for the Better Supporting
of Magistrates in the Admrcon of Justice and for the Disabling
Thos Macnemara Esqr to Practice the Law therein, should be
Declared to be Null Void and of no Effect
Their Lordships are pleased to Express themselves on this
Perticular that they do think such a Law very necessary.
But forasmuch as there is tackt to it a Clause agt a perticular
pson without Hearing the Party wch is the undoubted Right of
Every One of his Majesties Subjects for this Reason their
Lordships on very Good Advice and Deliberation are Obliged
to Dissent to the sd Act.

Gentlemen of the Lower House
I am ignoranf of the Motives Induced you to pass the
aforementioned Bill more then from the Reasons sett forth
therein, which in my Opinion are Strong and well Expressed
And the facts Alledged such known Truths, that I doubt not
you had Taken all Measures Proper to the Occasion.

P. 5

But I must aver and Declare that the Party named in that
Bill did not Apply himself to the upper House where if he had
Cause he might have been relieved nor to me as Govr who
had a Negative on that Bill tho there was some time Between

the Passing it in Both Houses & my fixing the Scale and

Assenting to it as an Act.
