Gentlemen of the Upper & Lower Houses of Assembly
As this is the first Time of our meeting in Assembly since we
Received the news of the marriage of the Princess Royal with his
Serene Highness the Prince of Orange, I cannot notwithstanding
the Length of Time neglect this opportunity of congratulating you
on so happy an occasion, being perswaded that you must feel the
same Joy and Satisfaction, the same Sense of Gratitude to his
Majesty for his Paternal Care and Goodness which has been so
fully testified by all the Rest of his faithful Subjects
Of the many inestimable Benefits we Enjoy under his Majesty's
most mild & Just Government it is not one of the least that we have
the Liberty of making among ourselves from Time to Time such
Laws not inconsistent with the Trade and Interest of Great Brit-
tain as may be thought most proper to promote our own Welfare
and Prosperity. A Privilege from which we shall always reap
advantages in Proportion to the Wisdom and Prudence that gov-
erns our Consultations, Therefore as we are now met together for
that Purpose, I Hope you will apply yourselves to the Service of
your Country, with an Attention Suitable to the occasion; there
being many Things particularly relating to our truly Valuable
Staple of Tobacco, that will readily occur to you very well worth
your Serious Consideration
