U. H. J.

to you this Particular which is in my Instructions to witt, The
raising further Supplys for the Support of the Governor for
the time being and the Defraying the Necessary Charges of
the Government, I conceive it will be an Advantage to the
Country as well as Satisfaction to myself to know what you
intend for me to Support the honour of the Post the King
hath placed me in and to reduce that and also the Allowances
to the Gentlemen of the Council and Assembly to a certain
Fund; will be the best way that we may measure Our
Expences, with what you Settle I hope you will come Short of
none of Our Neighbouring Colonies in any thing of this
