VOTES and PROCEEDINGS, November, 1799.            99

    Mr. Worthington, from the committee, delivers to the speaker a bill, entitled, An act respecting
the free-school of Anne-Arundel county; which was read the first time and ordered to lie on
the table.
    Mr. Calvert, from the committee, delivers to the speaker a bill, entitled, An act to empower
the levy court of Prince-George's county to lay off a road in said county; which was read the
first time and ordered to lie on the table.
    Mr. Duckett from the committee delivers to the speaker the following message:

By the HOUSE of DELEGATES, December 31, 1799.
    WE cannot at present determine the precise period when the session can be closed, but feel
confident that it cannot be terminated by so early a day as Thursday next.  We are endeavouring
to complete the business before us, and hope we shall be able to conclude the session by Saturday
next.  The determination of the senate to act upon no private business after Wednesday is communicated
to us at so late a period that we fear injustice might be done to individuals if rigidly
adhered to.  We shall send no business of that description to your house unless we think it may
at this session require the interposition of the legislature.  We flatter ourselves that a sense of
public duty will enforce the attendance of the members of the senate until the session can with
propriety be closed.
                                                        By order,                                W.  HARWOOD, clk.
