To which Address his excellency was pleased to return the following Answer:

GENTLEMEN: The loyalty you express to the King, and your kind Address to me on my appointment to this Government, claim my warmest acknowledgments.

I receive the greatest satisfaction in the assurances you give of your intentions towards the preservation of the peace and welfare of the community, and return you thanks for the assistance you offer to render my administration easy and happy.

I beg you to believe, that as it is my duty, so it is my inclination to give a close attention to the administration of justice, and the due execution of the laws; and that I shall exert every power lodged in my hands, for the protection of his Majesty' s subjects, that every individual may enjoy the blessings peculiar to a British Constitution, by being secured both in his person and property.
