The Speaker and the whole House attend Accordingly and
his Honour was pleased to Open the Session with the follow-

Gentlemen of the Upper and Lower Houses of Assembly.

Since our Last Session the Brittish Parliament Has taken

every one for their own Interest to Endeavour to mend the
Quality, and send home none but Clean Tobacco, and tho this
may in some measure lessen the number of Hogsheads, yet

having their Good at Heart before his own Private Interest,
has Commanded me to pass his Revenue Bill upon the same
Foot it was for three years Longer.
