592 Assembly Proceedings, May 1-June 4, 1744.

L. H. J.

Naval Officers to make Copies of the Orders by which they Receive
the sum of ffourteen pence per Ton on all Snipping Trading into
this Province, except owned therein, as also the Sum of Twelve
Pence Sterling p Hogshead on all Tobacco exported out of the
same, and the Amount of the same Sums Respectively for Two years
then last past, proved and Authenticated to the Honourable Speaker,
Mr James Calder, Mr Philip Hammond, Dr Charles Carroll, Mr
Henry Hall, Mr Thomas Worthington, Mr John Magruder, Mr
Tumor Wootton, and Mr Osborn Sprigg, or any Two or Three of
them applying for the same; but on a Report made by the said Gen-
tlemen this Sessions, we find that they were not able to procure the
Amount of the said Sums as therein requested, your Excellency
Referring to the Reasons in your Answer to the Address of the
Lower House, which we apprehend were, that as the Quantum was
not the thing in Dispute, so you did not see how the amount thereof
could determine the Rights thereof.
The Amount of the Twelve pence per Hogshead, and the sum for
Tonnage, are what the Council for the Country directs, and the
Agent writes for, and are what we think essentially necessary for
the Country's Service, and therefore humbly entreat your Excellency
again (notwithstanding that the use or service thereof may be to you
unknown) that you'll Order the said several Offices within this
province, to deliver to the Honourable Speaker, Mr James Calder,
Mr Philip Hammond, Doctor Charles Carroll, Mr Henry Hall,
Mr Thomas Worthington, Mr John Magruder, Mr Tumor Wootton,
and Mr Osborn Sprigg, or any Two or Three of them, distinct and
particular Accounts of the Amounts of the said ffourteen pence
Sterling per Ton on all Shipping or Vessels Trading into this Prov-
ince, and not owned therein; as also of the said Twelve pence Ster-
ling per Hogshead on all Tobaccoes Exported out of this Province
for Two years then last past preceeding the said Sessions of Assem-
bly, proved on their Corporal Oaths before proper Magistrates, and
the same Authenticated by your Excellency under the Great Seal,
in such manner as to enable us to Carry before his Lordship, or in
Case of need, before his Sacred Majesty in Council, the Address of
this House, complaining of Sundry Aggrievances in the said Ad-
dress mentioned.
Which was Read and assented to, and Signed by Order of the
House, by the Honourable Speaker.
Ordered, That Mr Lloyd and Mr R. Gresham acquaint the Gov-
ernor, this House hath prepared An Address to him, and desires to
know when and where he will Receive it; They return and acquaint
Mr Speaker the Governor was ready to receive it in the Conference
Chamber.
Ordered, That William Stoughton Esqr and Mr Wootton present
the Address; They return and acquaint Mr Speaker they presented it.
