Message from the Governour


October 17, P˙ M. — The Governour, by Mr˙ Secretary, sent down a written Message to the House, which was read by order, and is as follows, viz:

GENTLEMEN: By the latest intelligence from the Westward, the Earl of Dunmore was set out on an expedition down the Ohio against the Shawanese Indians, and it is very uncertain as yet whether the troubles on the Frontiers may subside: I therefore find it incumbent on me to recommend to your consideration the propriety of keeping in pay, for a longer time, the Rangers employed by this Government; or taking such other measures as you may judge, on this occasion, most proper for the publick security.
