Message from the Commons House to the Governour


A Message from the Commons House to his Excellency the Governour.

May it please your Excellency:

We beg leave to assure your Excellency that this House, in their Address , was far from intending any, the least, reflection on your Excellency' s conduct, in not meeting us sooner in General Assembly, and are sorry your Excellency should view it in that light. All we meant was, to assure you how ready we shall ever be to sacrifice our private interest to the publick service; at the same acknowledging your Excellency' s goodness in so readily consenting, on the application of our Speaker, to postpone the calling of the General Assembly to the time you fixed for their meeting, of which this House had been duly informed by their Speaker.

By order of the House:


In the Commons House of Assembly, July 12, 1775,
