be sent but before the same was prepared the Lower was
This house Adjourned till to Morrow Morning 8 of the

Lib. W. H.

The honourable

William Joseph Esqr
IColl Henry Darnall
Major Nicholas Sewall
Clement Hill Esqr

Clement Hill Esqr went to the Lower house with the
Message he was to have gone withall last night which follows

Upper house I4th November 1688.
This house have Considered of the Message by Mr Lingan
and Mr Luffe relateing to the Oath of fidelity and they do find
that the Chief reason why the said Oath was not taken the
last Sessions of Assembly was because the said Oath was not
proposed to them in due time before they had Entered upon
the Affairs of their house therefore this house did resolve in
this Sessions to send to the Lower house early and before
they Entered upon other Business, But find by the said Mes-
sage of the Lower house sent by the said Mr Lingan and Mr
Luffe that neither is it now proposed in due time for that this
is still the same Assembly, But upon the whole matter for
Answer this house does Say that although this be the same
Assembly yet it is not the same Sessions and the Laws says it
ought to be taken at any time whensoever required by the
Chief Governor or Governors or whom they shall appoint, and
the Government by this house doth propose the said Oath to
the Lower house to be taken by the Members thereof before
any other Business be Entered upon, and Besides it was his

Lordships Pleasure to declare at the Ending of the Session of
Assembly in April 1684 in the prsence of both houses That
every Member of Assembly for the future should before they
be Admitted to Sit take the Oath of fidelity to his Lordship ;
this house therefore do hope that the Lower house will not
refuse so legall and reasonable a Proposition, and this house
neither can nor will Deviate from the Law and his Lordships
Order made therein as aforesaid. This house therefore desire
the speedy Concurrence of the Lower house in this particular
hoping that those that ought to be Conseryers of the Law will
be no breakers thereof.
Signed pr Order Tho: Grunwin Cl of Assembly.
