506 Assembly Proceedings, May 15-June 8, 1751.

U. H. J.
Liber No. 34
May 15
p. 368

While other Nations are improving their Commerce, by opening
Canals and Shortning and mending their Roads We are lengthning
Ours in many Parts of the Province by Windings and Turnings, and
obstructing their Passage with Gates & other Incumbrances; which
deserves our attention the more, as this is certainly the Proper time
to lay them Strait and open, before We begin to bound our Fields
with Ditches, and other Fixed fences which good Husbandry, if not
necessity may probably bring us to in a Short time
Nothing could give me more Pleasure than to See a General Spirit
of Improvement Spread it Self throughout the Province which is
our duty to promote as much as we can in our Legislative Capacity ;
and I flatter myself that the visible Advantages We have reaped
from our Inspection Law will not only incite our Endeavours to
bring it to the utmost Perfection but be an Encouragement to us to
enter into the consideration of such other Laws as may Tend to Ad-
vance the Trade and Prosperity of the Province in every respect.
In whatever You undertake for the Public good, You may be
assured of my hearty Concurrence and best Assistance; and I cannot
but hope, that you will on your Parts, give such Reasonable Support
to the Government as may be Necessary for your own Safety and
Security.
I desire no Increase of Power, but to enable me to promote your
happiness the more effectually; my greatest ambition being to make
the Province flourish and Prosper under my Administration
Messrs Hooper [Hopper] and Davis from the Lower house attend
with Mr John Tillotson a Member returned for Queen Anns County
to See him Qualified, who takes the Several Oaths to the Government
Required by Law, repeats and Subscribes the Abjuration and Test
and then withdraws.
