Gentlemen of the Upper and Lower Houses of Assembly.
I am Sorry the Season is so far advanced, that you are prevented
entering into Consideration of those Subjects which I recommended
to your Attention at the opening of the Session, I must however
hope that their Utility will not be overlooked the first opportunity
that presents itself to you, especially a Review of the State of the
Criminal Law, the Defects of which I so fully pointed out, on the
Address of the Lower House this Session, a Circumstance which
nattered me with hopes, that the same would be taken into im-
mediate Consideration
Gentlemen of the Lower House.
The vast Loss of Time to yourselves, and the great Expence of
Money to the Country which have accrued this Session ..... [The
Governor's address beginning thus is printed in full in the Lower
House Journal, pp. 236-237.]

Thus Ends this Session of Assembly begun and Held at the

ships Dominion Anno Domini 1771. U Scott C. Up Ho
