The Lower House. 307

Tillage and Relief of Debtors is omitted and we taking that
Act to be very advantageous to many of her Mayesty's poor
Subjects who often fall under unfortunate Circumstances
desire it may be revived And whereas her Majesty's Royal In-
structions to his Excellency positively inhibit the reviving of
several Acts of different Natures in one and the same Law for
fear of any Dissent therefore we cannot consent to the House's
Request but propose the several Acts be severally revived by
different Bills which will be very short and not occasion any
great Delay to the Conclusion of this Session
Signed p Order W Bladen Cl. Co.

the Honble Council has been represented and seems to us to
be an Aggrievance and contrary to the known Practice of all
Courts in this Province and to the manifest Prejudice of her
Majesty's good and Loyal Subjects there in Regard it's a great
Hindrance to the said Attorneys in performing their Duties
for fear of incurring your Excellency's and Honours Displea-
sure and also a great Cause of their growing insolent sup-
posing the Courts of Law have not Power to suspend and
displace them for these Misdemeanours whose Qualifications
with Submission we presume your Excellency will believe is
best known to the Commissioners of the Courts wherein they
practice: For which Reason this House humbly address them-
