At a Session of Assembly begun and held by several
Prorogations at Annapolis October the 6th in the ninth year
of the Dominion of the Right Honourable Charles Lord
Baron of Baltimore Absolute Lord and Proprietary of the
Provinces of Maryland and Avalon &ca Annoq Domini 1724.

The Honourable Charles Calvert Esqr Governor
Colo William Holland John Rousby Esqr
the honble Colo Samuel Young Benjamin Tasker Esqr
John Hall, Esqr
Members of the Upper House

Colo Mackall and Mr Tyler from the Lower House acquaint
his Honour the Governor there are a sufficient number of
their members met to proceed upon Business
Whereupon Colo Young is sent to acquaint them that his
Honour the Governor requires Mr Speaker and the whole
House to attend him in the Council Chamber immediately
The Speaker and the whole House give their Attendance
accordingly and his Honour opened the Session with the
following speech viz.

Gentlemen of the Upper and Lower Houses of Assembly.
Having received no late Instructions by Reason of the
Shipping not being yet arrived I have nothing to lay before
you from my Lord Proprietor.

It will be very necessary to fall upon some method to
prevent the Exportation of Corn out of this province when
there is reason to fear we may be Reduced to want our selves
and which will be our Case in a little Time if not prevented
For by Report our Neighbouring Colonies have suffered
very much in their Corn and they will no doubt purchase
more than we can prudently Spare them; therefore I think it
very worthy your consideration

I shall conclude with heartily Recommending the necessary
dispatch of the publick Affairs and as I have nothing more
at Heart than the Prosperity of the Country I do not in the
least doubt your best Wishes for the publick Welfare
Cha: Calvert.
