Letter of Transmittal. xi

The proceedings of the Upper House exist only in the official manuscript
libers, and from these the Upper House entries printed in this volume have
been taken. The proceedings of the Lower House and the acts of the Assembly,
however, exist both as contemporary official manuscript records in liber form
and as contemporary printed pamphlets. As reproduced in this volume both of
these sources have been carefully compared and checked for errors or variations
in the text. It may be added that the marginal notes reproduced in this volume
are to be found only in the contemporary printed pamphlets.

Messages, addresses, and letters which are recorded in the proceedings of
both houses, if of any considerable length, are printed only in the proceed-
ings of the house in which they originated, but if brief they are reproduced
under the proceedings of both houses. The source material available for the
publication of the proceedings and acts of the Maryland Assembly is dis-
cussed more fully in the introduction to a former volume of the Archives
(Arch. Md. Hi, xxxiv-xxxv).

The Committee on Publications is indebted to Miss Elizabeth Mann for the
carefully prepared index to this volume. Mrs. Vivian E. Barnes of the Soci-
ety's staff has rendered valuable assistance in helping to prepare the copy for
the press.

The next volume of the Archives will contain the Proceedings and Acts of
the General Assembly for the remainder of the year 1758, and for the next
succeeding three years.

Respectfully submitted,


Committee on Publication.
