Liber No. 47
obliged me so earnestly to recommend, and I hope the Behaviour of
all the neighbouring Colonies on the same Occasion, will justify my
Conduct in this Affair. But to shew how averse I am to have the
public Debt increased, without a Prospect of advantaging our Coun-
try, and how uneasy I am at the Thoughts of detaining you against
your Inclinations, I have, with the Advice of his Lordship's Council
of State, thought fit to prorogue this Assembly to Wednesday the
First Day of May next; and you are to take Notice you are pro-
rogued to that Day accordingly.
Thus endeth this Session of Assembly, this 9th Day of March,
Anno Domini 1754.
