150 Assembly Proceedings, March ip, 1733/4-March 25, 1734.

U. H. J.
Lib. No. 33

of Our Legislature from engrossing the same Power and Authority
which is vested and only vested in the whole

It has always been the Custom of Our Mother Country to keep
up, and Support that necessary Dependance, which One Part of the
Legislature has and ought to have upon Others, to the End that
Publick Interest may be carried on by the united Endeavours of all
the Parts of the Legislature: It is by observing these wise Maxims,
that Our happy Constitution is so firmly established; and nothing
can in all Probability tend more to weaken that Establishment, than
the overthrowing that Dependance I have been mentioning; and It
is evident to any Considering impartial Man, that your expelling
your Members in the Manner you have done, is assuming a Power
to your selves entirely independent, and indeed destructive of the
other Parts of the Legislature; and of the Liberties and Properties
of His Majesty's Subjects; which, not only as a Governor but as a
Subject to His Majesty King George, I am obliged to support and

p. 309

maintain to the Utmost of my Power; And therefore, with the
Advice of His Lordship's Council of State I Dissolve this present
General Assembly, and It is accordingly dissolved.
Thus Endeth this Assembly the twenty fifth Day of March in the
Eighth Year of his Majesty's Reign, and in the nineteenth year of
his Lordships Dominion Annoq Domini 1734
Jno Ross Cl.
