The Upper House. 517


After so much has been said on both Sides it might be improper
to trouble your Excellency with any thing further on the Subject,
than by saying that We look upon it as Our Duty to be as Tenacious
of Our Priviledges, as the Upper House can be of theirs; and that
the frequent Renewment of Bills, which with General Appro-
bation have been in use for many years, give them as great a Sanction
as any Agreement of Conferees can to a new one
As therefore we are well convinced, that We are Acting for the
present as well as future Interest of the People, and the Preservation
of their Rights and Priviledges, and that the due Administration
of Justice at home, is altogether as necessary for Our Welfare, as
the defence from our Enemies abroad, We cannot depart from our
former Resolution of keeping back the Bill for Arms and Ammu-
nition 'till We have those other necessary ones from the Upper
House with their Usual duration; and submit to your Excellency
to do with us as you shall think proper
Signed on Behalf and by Order of the House
Philip Hammond, Speaker
