336 Assembly Proceedings, May 8-June 2, 1750.

U. H. J.
Liber No. 34
May 8

p. 327

perity of our Trade may not be in any degree frustrated by any
want of Care, and Attention in ourselves
As to my own Part you may be assured of my Sincere desire to
Promote your Happiness in every respect: It is not only my Incli-
nation but I Look upon it as my duty, and shall ever think myself
happy in Proportion to the Benefit the Publick may reap from my

These are my real Sentiments and I can truly say that I never have
recommended anything to you, but I Sincerely thought it for your
Interest; even the three pence p hogshead for Arms and Ammuni-
tion, which the duty of My Station must always Oblige me to press
in a Particular manner, concerns the Government no further than
as it is necessary for the Safety and Defence of the Province, which
every man of Property in the Country is essentially interested in,
tho the Inhabitants upon the Borders must always be Exposed to
the most immediate danger; and it is certainly more Convenient
to raise a Small Sum yearly, than to have Arms and Ammunition
to provide upon a sudden Emergency, which no Man can tell how
soon may happen
The other temporary Laws you will of Course take under your
Consideration; and as I make no doubt of your good Disposition for
the Publick Service I hope We shall Avoid all unecessary Disputes,
and be able to give such Dispatch to Business as to make our Meet-
ing not only advantageous but easy to the People
Messrs Lee & Wilson from the Lower house attend with, Messrs
Bond, Key Barns & Mills, Members returned for St Marys County,
and with Messrs Colvill and Hyland two of the Members returned
for Cecil County, to see them qualified, who take the several Oaths
to the Government required by Law repeat and Subscribe the Ab-
juration and Test & then withdraw
