4 Assembly Proceedings, Feb. 22-Mar. 26, 1755.

U. H. J.
Liber No. 35
February 22

p. 2

that I have received from one of his Majestys principal Secretarys
of State which Sets in the Strongest Light That, and the Several
other Motives which should Prompt us to exert our selves on this
Occasion; I will Satisfy myself with laying it before you and with
exhorting you to consider how far the Season is already advanced
and to finish the Business for which you are Assembled with the
greatest Dispatch. Gentlemen I take this Occasion of recommending
to you to regulate the hire of Waggons and Horses in Case the
Service should require us at any time to impress either in this
Government which I do not doubt but you will think highly Proper
and Reasonable when I acquaint you that a short Experience has
Shewn that many of the Inhabitants have raised the Price of Car-
riage Since the begining of these unhappy Disturbances in propor-
tion as they found we Stood in need of their assistance. I must also
observe to you that the few men We have been hitherto obliged to
Quarter in or March thro this Province have Occasioned a very
extravagant Expence by Reason the Ordinary Keepers refused to
Receive any into their houses or afford them Entertainment but at
the Rates that have been Settled by the Magistrate of the Respective
Counties for Private Travellers and Passangers: These Prices I
doubt not you will think too great to be paid for private Soldiers,
and you will I hope regulate them by a Bill in a Moderate and
Reasonable manner which will Remove all Occasion of Dispute
between the Soldiers and the Inhabitants.
Gentlemen of the Lower house I shall acquaint you by a Message
how part of the Six thousand pound which you granted some time
Since has been disposed of for the Service and shall be much pleased
if my manner of expending it receives your approbation
