The Upper House, 193

Major General Lloyd, Colo
Holland, Colo
Greenfield and
Philip Lynes Esqr were sent by his Excellency to the House of
Delegates to command them in her Majestys name to give
their immediate Attendance at the Council Chamber they re-
turn and say they acquainted the House therewith and imme-
diately the whole House attended his Excellency in Council
and his Excellency was pleased to acquaint the Delegates as

I having received her Majestys Instructions to lay several
matters before you in Order thereto and that the publick Levy
might be laid & several Good and Beneficial Laws continued
by the Advice of her Majestys honble Council I ordered Writts
of Election to issue for choosing Representatives or Delegates
from the several Counties and Citys to meet me here on the
27th past In hopes of your ready concurrence with what her
Majesty had so reasonably recommended to you but to our
great Sorrow find you have refused all and proceeded after so
unwarrantable and Unparliamentary a manner that you have
laid us under such circumstances we know not how to Retrieve
you were We never so willing unless we should leave such
Presidents to Posterity that would not only be prejudicial to
her Majestys Prerogative but the priviledges of her Subjects
and to the ill Example of all future Assemblys, for on your
first meeting without qualifying your selves according to her
Majestys directions in my Commission exprest that is to say
taking the several Oaths you are hereby enjoyned before any
of you can be qualified to sit in the House of Delegates you
proceeded to choose a Speaker Debate Priviledges make Votes
Reject a Clerk, legally commissioned and make an Adjourn,
ment without any, Wherefore since there is no Retrieving this
Misfortune your heats have run you into I take the Assembly
to be discontinued and with the Advice of her Majestys
Council do dissolve you and you are dissolved
I will take care the County shall have timely Notice to elect
new Delegates to serve them
So Ended this Convention
Evan Jones Clk Council in Assembly

U, H. J.
