Proposed by some of the members of this house to take
into consecedon the Act of the last Sessions of Assembly
Entituled an Act for the Imposition of four pence p Gall: on
Liquors imported into this province, and Whether the said
Act is to fall in exempting all Shipps and Vessells that should
after this act, be built and belong to the people of this prov-
ince from the Duty therein imposed, as was intended by the
act of Assembly.
Thereupon it is unanimously resolved, that it never did
enter into the calculation and intent of the said Assembly to
impose said duty on any Shipp or Vessel that should after
the proclayming of that act, be built in and belonging unto
the people of this province, but should be wholly exempt from
all the said duty of 4d p Gallon, according to the true intent
and meaning of the said act, and that the two pence p Gallon
is not to be exacted of such; but onely of Shipps or Vessells
as were built before the said Law, or belonging to the people
but not built in this province.
