554 Assembly Proceedings, Sept. 14-Oct. 9, 1756.

Liber No. 35

tion of Affairs on this Continent lays his Lordship under a necessity
of conjureing, and requiring you in the most earnest, and impor-
tunate manner, to levy a number of Men in this Colony with the
utmost Expedition for the Regiment, which his Majesty has gra-
ciously ordered to be raised in America for the defence of these
Colonies: what makes his Lordship so urgent, and induces him to
press you for a Number of Recruits at this Juncture, rather than
Aid in any other shape you will learn from his Letter, and as his
Majesty has signified his Pleasure and expects you will apply the

p. 118

Money that you have raised or may grant for the Public Service,
as the Commander in Chief of his Majesty's forces on this Conti-
nent shall direct, I persuade myself you will not hesitate to appro-
priate part of the Money already granted in the manner that his
Lordship requires, especially as you must all be convinced that by
these means you can most effectually promote his Majesty's Service,
and the Welfare and safety of this and the neighbouring Colonies.
On the Receipt of his Lordships Letter, I sent Instructions to the
commanding Officers of the Militia to enlist Men in their respective
Counties for the Royal American Regiment, a Copy of the Instruc-
tions I shall lay before you hoping you will make Provision for
repaying the Money that might be expended on that Service, and
that my ready compliance with his Lordship's Requisition will meet
with your Approbation.
You will observe Gentlemen that we are called on to lay an
Embargo on outward bound Vessels, laden with Provisions, and/as
the Northern Governments have already done/to prohibit for a time
the Exportation of any out of this Province I hope you will imme-
diately proceed to frame a Bill for this Purpose, and that you will
also very speedily enable me to send acceptable Answers to the
Letters which you shall have to peruse.
Gentlemen of the lower House

I have several other Matters to communicate to you, but shall post-
pone the mention of them 'til I understand that you have come to
some Determination on those which I have now submitted, and
recommended to your Consideration :
[The letters referred to in the above speech are printed on pages
