4 Assembly Proceedings, October 11-27, 1720

U. H. J.

wel beloved Charles Calvert Esqr our Cousen & Lt to acqt you
wth the Reasons wch have moved us to place him over you

His Approv'd Loyalty and faithfull Service to our Dread
Sovn King George

The many Observacons which dureing his ffrdship with us
we have made of his kind wishes and hearty Endeavours as
much as in him Occasionally lay to make the Interest of the
Province & Propry one, wthout either Extending our Prerog-
ative or Lessening your Privileges wch, now we have put power
into his hands we doubt not but he will & We strictly Comand
him punctually to Ballance
We cannt omitt Gentln on this Occasion to Disapprove the
late hasty pceedings of Thos Brooke Esqr tho we have Reason
to believe he Intended nothing more than our's and your Ser-
vice thereby; and very much Condemn the malicious Reports
and Insinuacons of those who have endeavoured to Disturb
the Minds of the good People of Maryland by Suggesting that
we had sent a private Como to the sd Thos Brooke to take upon
him the Governmt dureing the Residence of our late Lt John
Hart Esqr a Method we scorn to Rule by, And wch has Induced

p. 4

us to Change our Design of Administring the Governmt by
the Person first nam'd in our Councill & place it as we have
done till such time as the Affairs of your Lord and Propry will
Allow him to reside among you himself or he shall otherwise
Dispose thereof, when he hopes to Bury those Seeds of Rancour
and Jealousie wch have too long prevailed among the People
& so to Unite their Hearts and minds that the misguided part
of the Province Dissenting from our Blessed Establishmt both
in Church and State will peaceably & Quietly Submitt to the
Known Laws by his Mild yet due Execucon of them And rest
happy under the Indulgence pmitted to them
In the mean time tis Our peculiar good fortune that his
Majtys ffaithfull Subjects of the Province have Intrusted the
Direction of their Applicacons to the Care of Col Blakiston a
pson so Constantly attach'd to the Protestant Interest and of
such known and Approved Loyalty to the King & Esteem wth
his Ministers that we take Pleasure at his Instances to make
our Power Conducive to your Happyness

His Honr the Govrs Speech to the Uppr and Lowr houses of
Assembly wch is as follows Viz.

p. 5

Gentlemen of the Upper and Lowr houses of Assembly
I shall not trouble you myself with Long Harrangues but
rather Choose to let time and my future Actions Demonstrate
how much I desire the peace and Prosperity of this Province
