All which the Governor passed into Laws in the usual Manner.

a Conference with the Upper House, will be the most effectual
Means of procuring a Passage of the Journal, and thereby laying
a ffoundation for circulating a Medium of Commerce in this Prov-
ince, and directed him to report the same to the House. On Con-
sideration of the Report aforesaid, the House concurs therewith.

Nov. 18

Tuesday, November 18.
The House met.
M.r J Hall of Baltimore County appeared in the House.
Capt. Winder, and Col. Tilghman, have Leave of Absence.
The Governor communicates to M.r Speaker the following Mes-
sage, Viz.t
Gentlemen of the Lower House of Assembly
I herewith send you a Letter, that I some Time ago, received from
one of his Majesty's Principal Secretary's of State, together with
Copies of two Acts of Parliament, past the last Session, and a Copy
of several Notes and Resolves of the British House of Commons,
respecting the Colonies; which Resolves, I likewise send for your
Perusal and Consideration. Being satisfied, that his Majesty has not,
throughout his American Dominions, any Subjects impressed with
a deeper Sense of Loyalty and Gratitude, or that entertain a more
affectionate Regard for the Mother Country, and Respect for the
Parliament, than the Inhabitants of this Province, I embraced an
Opportunity, soon after my Receipt of the Letter, to communicate
such my Sentiments to his Majesty's Ministers ; and, as I think you
will not choose to fall short in any Respect of the Royal Expecta-
tions, I persuade myself, that those who have Pretensions to any
Compensation from you, under his Majesty's Recommendation, will
not apply to you in vain.
Nov.r 18, 1766 Hor.o Sharpe
