noble Excellent Character; And let that Magistrate be Stigma-
tized with Infamy who ever Connives at or Countenances any
Sort of Knavery, Atheism or disloyalty and when ever you

Convinced; to your lasting Glory that the People of Maryland
truly Serve God and with a dutiful Regard Honour our lawful
