Council what your Ldp was pleased to write in answer to our
Address on occasion of the Demise of His late Majesty where-
upon the Gentn agreed to express by another Address their
Acknowledgments to your Ldp for complying so readily with
their former Request & at the same time to beg the favour of
Your Ldp to present to our most gracious Sovereign & his
Royal Consort our Addresses of Congratulation on the Con-

all Ministers of the Gospel within this Province that for the

Your Ldp approves of my having upon the Discovery of Mr

Dr Scott a Gentleman for whose faithful Service I can under-
take to answer & am confident Your Ldp will never have the
least Reason to repent of any favour conferred on him. Your

particular or special Bonds conditioned for their payment to
Your Ldp's Agent of all such Money as they may respectively
collect for Your Ldp's use shall be forthwith communicated

Room of Mr Bordley who upon my pressing him again, to do
so quits it for the Office of Comy Genl I shall when I again
see Mr Goldsborough advise him of your Ldp's Instruction in
his favour & at the next Session cause him to be admitted a
Member of the Upper House of Assembly. I have agreeable
to Mr Calvert's Desire dispatched to Colo Lloyd the Letter that
