The Lower House. 65

To His Excy the Governour

We the Delegates now mett to represent the people of this
Province this present generall Assembly under the Goverment
of our Lord Propry begg Leave on this Occasion to Declare to
your Excy the great Satisfacon We have reed by the Answer
of the right honble Francis Lord Guilford to Our late Address
and by the Speech of the right honble the Lords Propry and
Guilford delivered us by your Excy at the Opening this Ses-
sions and do with all dutifull gratitude Acknowledge their
Lpps Goodness and shall make our humble application to their
Lpps by way of Address in relac5n to the Subject matter of
And now Proceed to assure Your Excy that Our En-
deavours shall not be wanting to make known to those We
represent how farr they are engag'd in Affection as well as
duty to our Lord Propry and his Noble Guardian for their
Declared Zeale for the Present establishment both in Church
and State.
We shall readily apply ourselves to the Consideracons of
such reasons as moved their Lpps to dissent to the Law relat-
ing to Irish Servants when your Excy shall be pleased to Com-
nicate them to us and shall pay due deference to their Lpps
motives and also have a just regard to the reasons offered for
the altering of the Law that relates to the Support of Govern-
We are obliged in Justice to acknowledge your Excy's
Tenderness of our Priviledges and Sorry to find our Selves
Mistaken in the Choice of an Officer who either forgot his
Duty or willfully Comitted a Breach of it by revealing the
Secrets of this house.
Tho' We are perswaded if he has confined himself to truth
he can lay no Crimes to our Charge.
Your Excy's endeavours to promote the true Intrest of this
Province have been eminently signalized to us in so many
remarkable Instances during your Administracon that We
have not the least room to Doubt of your Excy good Inclina-
And on this Occasion We must begg Leave to express our
Concern that the largest Opportunities We have had of dem-
onstrating the Esteem We have for your Excy have fallen sc
farr short of amounting to a Compliment that We are forc'd
to acknowledge We have failed in doing Justice to your merit
Under which reflection the Only Consolacon We can find is
Your Excy's generous Acceptance of our Endeavours when
abilities are wanting. Tho we are Limitted in Some Other
Respects We are not so in Affection which must Still be

L. H. J.
