200 Assembly Proceedings, July 18-August 5, 1721.

L. H. J.

Ordered that James Stoddart Esqr and Mr Robert Tyler

goe to the Upper House and Acquaint his Honr the Governr
that a Sufficient Number of Members are met to Make an
House.

They Return and Say They Delivered their Message. Coll
Tilghman from the Upper House Acquaints Mr Speaker that
his Honr the Governr Commands him and the whole house to
Attend him in the Council Chamber and with drew.
Thereupon Mr Speaker with the whole House went to the
Upper House, where his Honr the Governr was pleased on
behalf of his Lordship the Right Honble the Lord Proprietary
to Deliver the following Speech Viz.

Gentlemen of the Upper and Lower Houses of Assembly.
Baltemore.

The due Regard you promised by your Joint Dutifull Ad-
dress to pay to Our Speech transmitted to you by Our Late
Governr was most Welcome as we thereby found your Senti-
ments greatly Agreeing with our Own to Promote the Pros-
perity of Maryland, The true Reason that induced us a Second
Time to Recommend the Same Things to your Consideration
by our present Leiut*.

In your said Address You desired Time till the next Ses-

P. 3

sions to Consider the Proper Alterations you declare neces-
sary to be made to the late Act for Ascertaining the Bounds
of Land, then under our Consideration and which we had
signifyed to you ought to be Consonant to the Laws of Great
Brittain.
The Supplementary Act since made and intended for an
Amendment thereof leaves the Properties of his Majesties
Subjects in Maryland to be Determined in a Different Man-
ner from those of Great Brittain; whose Safety and happiness
it is to have theirs Tried and Decided by their Equalls,
Twelve Good Men of the Country on their Oaths. I have
therefore thought fit to Dissent to the said Act Entituled An
Act for Ascertaining the Bounds of Land within this Prov-
ince & likewise to the Act Entituled a Supplementary Act to
the Act for Ascertaining the Bounds of Land within this
Province and Doe hereby declare the said Acts Null, Void
and of no Effect.
No Doubt Gentlemen the Assistance of the Legislature may
be very Necessary in many Instances to the Courts in Main-
taining or Correcting but not in depriveing them of their
Judicature And I shall be most ready to Confirm any such
Law in Order so to Settle the Boundaries of our Lands, as
every Man may in the best Manner Possible Enjoy his Own
