U. H. J.

Assembly of this Province in the year 1713 made their humble
Address and remonstrance to her late Majesty Queen Anne

a right thereto by his Prerogative we are unwilling to inter-
meddle therewith, But shall humbly address his Lordship that
his Lordship will be favourably pleased to let those fines be
applyed to the use of Free schools within this Province (whose
funds are too small for the Propagation of learning) and
desire your Excellencies and Honours favourable Concur-

ship's Secretarys who are the psons that transact all his Lord-
ships Affairs in relation to this Province without any fee or
reward (that we Can learn) but what accrues from the Sec-
