Orders & Instructions to our right Trusty & well Beloved Samuel
Ogle Esqr. our Lieutenant Governor of our Province of Maryland

It Appearing that all undue Concessions serve only to Lay
a foundation for further Incroachment & Endless Dis-
putes, you must be very Carefull for the future, not to part
with or to Lessen in the Least degree any of my Just
rights, & to Observe all my former Instructions, wth the Greatest
Exactness, and in particular those of the 26 March 1743, wch you
must take care to have Enterd in the Journals of the Council wth
such other Instructions as you may receive from time to time, that
none in the Council may be Ignorant of my Just Expectation
If any further devisions of Countys shou'd be propos'd, you must
take care not to Let any Bill pass for that purpose till I am satisfyed
of the necessity or usefullness of such a bill, or unless their be a
Clause in it that it shall not take place till my Assent be given to it.

No. 295 1/2
Feb. 6
p. 117

As I have never sent you any Instructions or ever shall, but what
are founded on Justice & Equity, I make no doubt, but you will
always find all Reasonable men, ready to support you & I am per-
swaded the Upper House will give their Negative, tp whatever bills
are unfit to be passed, however if Contrary to Expectation, it shou'd
at any time happen otherways, you are at all events to take care that
the said bills do not pass, And as for any Law that may be for the
Real Happyness & prosperity of the province, no Body shall ever
be Readier to Come into it then myself, as every such Law, must
of course tend to my own Interest, & that of my Tenants
Given under our hand & Lesser Seal at Arms at London this 6th day
of Febry in the Thirty sixth Year of our Dominion over the said
Province Anno Domini 1749-50
By his Lordship's Command

[Alexander Adams to Col. John Henry]
You express'd last year a great concern for the people in Nanticoke
hundred in Worcester County I hope by a petition lying before
your house of Assembly you will see that care is taken of them that
it pass yr house you know wr a compact parish it will be both the
N. west fork hundred in Worcester County & the Nanticoke hundred
in Worcester County are so contiguous to the N. East branch that
it will not be so stragling or so long a parish as the many branches
