him and the members of this house to attend him and his
Matys Honble Councill at the Councill Chamber.
Whereupon Mr Speaker and the whole house adjourne to
the Councill Chamber.
Att the Councill Chamber his Excy is pleased to make to
the house the following Speech viz:

Gent: I have never convened you oftner then the imediate
affaires of the Province have required, and that not oftener
then once a yeare neither should I have called you now soe
early in the Spring but that some concerns of moment require
yor concurrence.
The Law for Establishmt of Religious Worship in this prov-
ince according to the Church of England which you made last

necessary for yor Safeties that you give a Supply of six hundred

Wherefore If I have any credit with you it is my reall oppinion
you cannott be kinder to yor Selves then by showing yor ready
