502 Assembly Proceedings, May 1-June 4, 1744.

U. H. J.

other respects open to so many Objections, that the Purposes designed
thereby, may by many Accidents be entirely frustrated
As I have now fairly represented to yourselves and the World, so
much of your Conduct, as must appear extremely exceptionable, and
deficient in the Duty you owe to your Sovereign, and your own
Safety, I shall now to convince you of my sincere Inclinations to
put the best Construction possible upon any part of your Proceed-
ings, readily acknowledge my satisfaction in the Acquiescence you
have shewn to that part of my Message where I say, It is upon the
Presumption of those Loyal Principles which you so largely profess
on every Occasion, that I am thoroughly assured of your being con-
vinced of the Necessity of making good any Sum that shall be stipu-
lated to be paid to the Indians, tho it should exceed the 3Oo£ Sterling

p. 49

mentioned in your Address of the last Session Your Approbation,
which I infer from your silence on that head, will enable me to act
with the greater Certainty, of making good any sum that shall be
found necessary to be given the Indians at this Time, when their
Friendship is of so great Consequence to all his Majestys Domin-
ions upon this Continent, and you may depend upon it, I shall
strongly Charge the Commissioners to be as frugal of the Countrys
Money as possible
As to your Address of this Afternoon I am surprized the Answer
I gave you last Session, with regard to the 12d p hhd does not prove
satisfactory; since I pointed out the Method of informing your-
selves in that particular; And as to the 14d p Ton I must refer you
to his late Majesty King William's Decision about that Duty which
you are very well apprized of, and which will shew, you have no
Right to be informed of it
Gentlemen of the Upper and Lower Houses of Assembly
The Business of this Session being at an end, I do hereby Pro-
rogue this Assembly till the first Tuesday in September next and you
are to take Notice you are Prorogued to that day accordingly

Thus Ends this Session of Assembly begun and held at the City
of Annapolis the first Day of May and Ending the fourth Day of
June following in the thirtieth year of his Lordships Dominion and
in the seventeenth year of his Majestys Reign Annoq Domini 1744
Jno Ross, Cl.
