334 Assembly Proceedings, OctoberóNovember 1682.

U. H. Journal

Evil on the Freemen in another kind, I thought it likewise as
Necessary to Lessen Considerably the Charges and Expences
of Assemblies for the future, by sending for two Delegates
only out of Each County; This being Pursuant to the late
Establishment for the way and Manner of holding Assemblys
whensoever the last should be Dissolved
As in this I have proceeded according to the Undoubted
Rights, Priviledges. and Powers, of my Charter, and therein
have Observed and followed the same way and Method of
holding Assemblies, as in all other his Majesties Dominions,
so I very Confidently Assure myself that I shall not be
thought by any Member here present to have other Designe
in this than the Publick Good and Welfare of the Freemen
of Maryland, whose Ease and Benefit I am to seek and
endeavour all I canó
I having therefore Gentlemen given you this Assurance; I
must now let You understand the Causes of this Days Meeting,

which in Short is thisó
It was thought necessary by the Assembly in May last to
send some Agents to New York Government there to Settle

and Confirm a former Peace Made with the Sinniquo Indians;
and accordingly Coll: Henry Coursey one of the Council, and
Coll: Philemon LLoyd Speaker to that Assembly were the
Persons Nominated and Appointed by me for that Important
Affair, and by the Advice of my Council were Provided and
Armed with Directions and Powers Sufficient for the said
Purpose; These Gentlemen by their prudent Management of
the Business of that Negotiation, had that unexpected Good
Success therein that I cannot forbear Assuring You that I
have had it Certified by Letters from Persons of the Greatest
Note in that Government that they never knew their Neigh-
bouring Indians yeild to such Terms and Conditions, as by the
Articles you'l See these Agents brought them at Last to, which
yet might have been more for the Interest of this Govern-
mentócould these Gentlemen have used those Rules and
Methods they Designed; but that would in no wise be
allowed them; So that in my Opinion twas alltogether impos-
sible for Our Agents (the Circumstances they were in being
rightly Considered) to have Acted more for the Peace Secur-
ity and Honour of their Country then they did, I will let you
have the Perusall of the late Articles by which you will be
fully Satisfied of the great Services of these Gentlemen, and
you will also see that Some Discoveries have been made of
the Evil Practices of Jacob Young that long Disturber of Our
Peace and Quiet: I caused him to be Apprehended and
Secured in Irons, and do Resolve he shall receive his Tryall
this Assembly that so you may all see the Villany of that
