298 Assembly Proceedings, Feb. 23-May 22, 1756.

U. H. J.

Liber No. 35
May 22

less agreeable to your wishes than I did in convening you I will
not press you to take that affair into Consideration till your next
meeting but shall Content myself at present with recommending
it particularly to those Gentlemen of each house that are Commanders
and Officers to have the Militia in their respective Counties duly
Mustered and exercised agreeable to Our present Laws which I
shall by Proclamation order to be Strictly put into execution till
one more perfect and effectual can be made for that purpose. I hope
that the Provision that is now made for the Protection of the Inhabi-
tants will give them some Satisfaction And though I could wish
that a larger Share of the Forty thousand pounds had been appro-
priated to the immediate defence of the Frontiers yet I hope enough
is done to revive the Spirits of the back Inhabitants and encourage
them at least to remain on their respective Plantations. And Gentle-
men as you have in the Supply Bill Sigtiifyed an earnest desire to
be Convened again in the Winter I propose to gratify you unless
such a Step should then appear unnecessary or any extraordinary
Occurrence Oblige me to put the Country to the expence of a Ses-
sion before: In the mean time I desire you will in your Several
Counties Exert yourselves as becomes worthy Members of the Com-
munity and a Branch of the Legislature and that by promoting
Harmony among the people by your Conversation and discouraging
by your influence such practices as may tend to disquiet the minds
of your Constituents and to disturb the Public Tranquility you will
Endeavor to Convince all factions and Malevolent persons that they
cannot be more industrious in Contriving Mischief than we are Vigi-
lant and carefull to render their Wicked designs abortive.

p. 116
