The Upper House. 191

The low Estate of our Staple Justly Claimed your Consideration
and Relief, and I hope the present Law for that purpose will prove
It is with Great Reluctance that I am Obliged to Dissent to the
Laws For Ascertaining the Form of the Oath of Judge or Justice.
As likewise that for Ascertaining the Fees of the Practitioners of the
Law; The first because it is the Opinion of all the Lawyers here.
That the Statute Law does not Extend to the Plantations unless by
words of Locall Limitation; And forasmuch as the Oath declares
not only those already past do but also them that shall be hereafter
Enacted; As to the other it is not Agreeable to any known Law here.
Gentlemen of Both Houses. I cannot sufficiently Commend your
Zeal in your Countrys Service; and the Good People of Maryland
my Faithfull Tenants may Depend, Impartiall Justice shall be the
Measure of my Government.

Mr Dulany from the Lower House Acquaints His Excellency that
the House hath Appointed Mr William Cumming to Act as the Clerk
on behalfe of Mr Michael Macnemara during the absence of him the
said Macnemara and hopes for His Excellency's Approbation; His
Excellency is pleased to Approve of the said Mr Cumming; Who
takes the Oaths to the Government Appointed to be taken by Act
of Assembly and subscribed the Abjuration & Test according to the
Directions of the Act aforsd and also took the usuall Oaths of Office,
and then withdrew.
Adjourned till to Morrow Morning Nine a Clock.
