Message from the Council


A Message from the Council by Mr˙ Blair:

Mr˙ SPEAKER: I am commanded by the Council to deliver to this House a Paper, which they have received from the Governour, as his Excellency' s answer to the last joint Address of the Council and of this House. And he presented the said Paper at the bar.

And then the Messenger withdrew.

The said Paper was read, and is as followed, viz:

Experience having shewn the insecurity of the publick Magazine, and the Palace having hitherto been respected, I think it improper to give any other orders than that the arms belonging to the King, which have for so many years been lodged, may still remain there, and that they may on no account be touched without my express permission.
