Came Mr Boothby & Majr Smallwood from the house of
Burgesses who Signifyed that the house had understood his
Exncies being dissatisfyed with the Proceedings of Clayborn
Lomax their prsent Clerk, therefor had by a vote of their
house made Choice of Mr William Bladen to Officiate in his

Brought from the house of Burgesses by Mr Tasker & Majr
Maxwell the following Message Vizt

By the Burgesses of Assembly May 9th 1695.

Whereas the sad report of the death of her sacred Maty
Queen Mary fell under the Consideracon of this house, it does
appear that his Exncy the Governr and many private persons
wthin this Province have Lettrs expressing & affirming the
same for truth, This house therefore to take of all Occasions,
Scandols or Reflections wch may be cast upon the Service
injoyned by the Church of England by the adversaries thereof
have thought fit that her late Mats name be omitted in publick
prayers, And further it is by the house considered, that (upon so
great a loss) Wee can do no less than with great grief condole the
Same, therefore do humbly Request his Exncy will be pleased
to joyne wth this house in setting a part a Solemn day of
humiliation for that Service.
Signed p Ordr W Bladen Clk Assembly.
