Having found by Experience that many Gentlemen cannot attend
here on the Public Business at that Season of the Year when you
were last Convened, and apprehending it would be Convenient for
the Members of both Houses to meet at this time in Order to frame
such new Laws as the present Circumstances of the Country require,
and to Continue any that may have been found useful and will
otherwise expire before the end of the Year, I now give you an
Opportunity of doing so, not doubting but your Proceedings during
the Course of the Session will shew that you come together with
Minds sincerely disposed to promote the Tranquillity and Welfare
of the Province
