Answer of Governour Hutchinson


To which his EXCELLENCY was pleased to return the following Answer:

GENTLEMEN: The relation to the Bar which I stood in for many years together, makes this mark of your affection and esteem peculiarly acceptable. I feel the distress coming upon the town of Boston. I am confident nothing will be wanting on your part which may tend to promote the free course of law and that peace and good order in government which seems to have been made the conditions of obtaining relief from this distress. You may be assured that nothing shall be wanting on my part which may tend to procure this relief as speedily and effectually as may be. You certainly may be happy under the administration of his Excellency the present Governour, and I have great reason to join with you in a testimony to his amiable disposition and character.
