Assembly Proceedings, Sept. Oct. 1663. 483

The Clk of this howse to have as much as you allowe the
Clk of yor owne howse
The doore Keeper of this howse also the same as yor owne

Ordered that this Acct be sent to the lower howse.

The howse ajourned till
two of the Clock.

And the howse mett againe

Then came from the lower howse these reasons following
which they desired might be putt vpon Record in case this
howse thought not fitt to pass the Act for Secretarys ffees.

The heads of reasons of the lower howse of
Assembly why the Act for Secretarys
ffees should pass.

As to the 12d p pole, the Assembly haueing seriously Con-
sidered the small proffitt of the Secretarys place by reason of
the little Quantity of land that remaynes vnpattented which
they Conceiue was the cause of the last Assemblyes passing
that Act therefore doe thinke itt very fitt Jtt be Continued &
the rather because the respectiue Masters haue recd the said

U. H.

12d p pole in England which wee must Confes would looke very
strange & savor not a little of Injustice to take of what is given
for the support of his Lop? Officers and giue itt to the Masters
of ships, And as for all the other ffees conteyned in the sd Act.
Wee who are the Representative of the people conceiue them
not att all burthensome to the people of this Province, nor any
way Extravagant by reason of the greate trouble the Secretary
is att in his frequent goeing aboard the respective Vessells in
doeing his duty wch by his Office he stands obliged too, there-
fore if the Act which this howse prsented to the Vpper howse
Entituled an Act for addicon to & Amendmt of that Act for
the Secretarys fees may not pass.
Wee desire the Act made last Assembly may Continue &
remayne in force as itt is without any Amendmt or Alteracon.

After readeing of these reasons the opinion of the Major pte
of the howse was, that the Act for the Secretaryes ffees aboue
menconed ought not to pass.

The howse ajourned for 2 houres

And the howse mett againe & ajourned till to morrow 8 of
the Clock
