Message from the Legislative Council, by their Clerk.

"In the Legislative Council, April 2, 1776.

"Mr˙ Speaker and Gentlemen:

"This House received a Message just now from your House, by Mr˙ Parker and Mr˙ Izard, the address of which being ‘To Mr˙ Speaker and Gentlemen,’ we suppose must be done through mistake, as the mode hitherto used by your

v5:628

House hath been otherwise. We, therefore, beg leave to return you the Message for amendment.

"By order of the House:

"GEORGE GAB˙ POWELL, Speaker."

Ordered, That the words "Mr˙ Speaker and" be taken out of the Message referred to, and the word "Honourable" inserted in their stead.

Ordered, That Mr˙ Parker and Mr˙ Izard do carry the said Message, as amended, to the Legislative Council.
