516 Assembly Proceedings, April 23-June 5, 1740.

U. H. J.

No. 735

since it would make their Submission absolutely necessary to what
you should be pleased to Exact from them
Thus stands the Dispute between the two Houses, nor can I find
by any of the Messages or otherwise, that the Upper House ever
intended to deprive you of One Bill grateful to the People, but that
those Bills and the others for the necessary Support of Government
should go hand in hand, as you say your desire is

p. 108

As for my self, I must own I did express my Concern and Sur-
prize at Your keeping Back A Bill so formally agreed upon but what
you mean by saying " that the same Conduct in the Upper House is
said by me to be reasonable," I must Confess myself wholly at a Loss
to know, not being able to recollect, that either House ever did the
like thing before however they may have kept back other Bills not
agreed to by Conferees of both Houses, which I believe has been
indeed a common Practice in both Houses
But what Surprizes me the most of all is your saying " it gives
you no small Concern that after the most Solemn protestations and
Assurances you have given to the Contrary you should by me be sus-
pected of an Intention to keep back the Bill for Arms and Ammuni-
tion," when in fact the whole dispute depends upon your declaration
of your Resolution to keep Back the said Bill until the Upper House
should send down to you such of those other Bills as they should
think fit to pass, with the usual Duration

Upon the whole as the Upper House has declared it their unalter-
able Resolution not to read any Bill now on their Table, before you
send to them the Bill for Arms &ca agreable to the Conferees Report
I cannot see how you can expect my prevailing upon them, was I
ever so Sollicitous so to do, to depart from it, so that if you are still
resolved to keep Back the said Bill, nothing remains for me to do
but to Prorogue the Assembly as you seem rather to Chuse that
than to Adjourn Yourselves as I proposed to you
Sam: Ogle

June 5

To his Excellency Samuel Ogle Esqr Governor of Maryland
The humble Address of the House of Delegates of the said

May 1t please your Excellency
As we do not know that you had any Share in the present dis-
pute between the two Houses so neither in Our Opinion is there
any thing in Our Address which throws the Blame of it on your
Excellency; that Blame must lie on the one House or the other, and
We must leave it to those who are indifferent to both, to say who
should bear it.
