Gentlemen of the Upper and Lower Houses of Assembly

From my Desire of accomodating the Public Business to your
Private Affairs, I have delayed calling you together, nor Should I,
did not the Exigencies of Government make it necessary, now meet
you merely to notify the Lord Proprietary's Appointment of me to
Succeed Colonel Sharpe, as Governor of this Province, to merit
which Honour, and the Trust thus reposed in me, I shall ever Con-
sider it to be my indispensible Duty to promote, on all Occasions, the
Prosperity of Maryland.
Gentlemen of the Lower House

Convinced as I am that the real Interests of the Lord Proprietary
and the People of this Province are inseparable, I meet this Assembly
with the most agreeable Prospect. From your Attachment to the
Welfare of your Country, from your knowledge of its Circumstances,
and from your Moderation and prudence I derive the most per-
suasive and pleasing Expectation, that this Session will be dis-
tinguished by the Benefits which a Dispassionate and Amicable
Intercourse cannot fail to produce, by the Propriety of your Pro-
ceedings and by the Utillity of those Laws which shall be Enacted.
