168 Assembly Proceedings, May 9-11, 1749.

U. H. J.
Liber No. 34
May 9

that We have all the Reason in the world to hope will be of the
greatest Advantage to this Province in many Respects besides the
advancement of our Staple, on which we must principally rely
And It is a great Satisfaction to me to find that the Law we lately
passed for the Amendment of it meets with so General an Appro-
bation at home, and I flatter myself a few years Experience will
make it agreeable to Every Body here: But as a great deal must
always depend upon the faithful Execution of such a Law, it may be
worth our while to consider of some further Encouragement, to in-
duce men of worth and Character to take upon them the troublesome
office of Inspectors: and I thought it the more necessary to mention
this to you as many Gentlemen who have been recommended to me,
have declined serving.
Many of our temporary Laws being to Expire with this Session,
you will of course consider which of them it may be proper to renew,
however my duty Obliges me to recommend to you in a Particular

disposition for the Publick Good, I hope We shall be able not only
to Proceed with unanimity But to give such dispatch to Business as
to lessen the usual Expences of Our meeting in Assembly to which
I shall readily contribute what lies in my power being at all times
desirous to Promote the Ease and Prosperity of the People in every
Respect as much as Possible.
Messrs Harris and Buchanan from the Lower house acquaint his
Excellency their house hath made Choice of Mr Michael Macnemara
as their Clerk and that they attend to see him qualified; His Ex-
cellency is pleased to acquaint them, that Mr Macnemara must be
first Presented to him as their Clerk in the usual Manner for his
Messrs Harris and Buchanan from the Lower house again attend
with Mr Macnemara, and acquaint his Excellency that their sending
up their Clerk in the manner they had done, did not proceed from
any design in the house to infringe the Rights of the Government
or from any disregard to his Excellencys Person, But that they

thought themselves Justified in what they had done by former Presi-
dents of their house.
And to shew his Excellency that they were so they were further
Ordered by the House to deliver the following Extract from the
Journal in July Session 1732 Viz.
