May it Please your Excellency

We return your Excellency our sincere & hearty thanks for your
very kind and obliging Speech at the Opening of this Session
We have already experienced the good Effect of our Inspection
Law, and are convinced, that Removing the few Prejudices to it,
and guarding against the arts that have been used, or may be in-
vented, to elude the force of it, will greatly contribute to establish
the happiness of our Country upon a lasting foundation; and there-
fore We assure you of Our utmost care and greatest Attention to
acomplish so desireable an End.
We acknowledge with the deepest sense of Gratitude, the Assur-
ance you have given Us, of your Sincere desire to promote our Hap-
piness in every respect, which we are fully satisfied, are the real
Sentiments of Your Heart, and therefore it is incumbent on Us
very Chearfully to concur with you in every Measure that may be
necessary for the Safety & defence of this Province
We are determined to avoid all unnecessary disputes, and to do
every thing in our Power to dispatch the publick Business which is
certainly Our duty, and the undoubted Interest of every individual
Man in Maryland
B Tasker President
