* Gentlemen cf the Conncil, and Gentlemen cf the General /^Jfimbly,

* TT THEN it pleafed his Majefty gracioufly to honour me with his
' VV Commiffion for this Gcverninent, I cor.fidered it as a partimlar
' Felicitv to be placed in that Station among a People thatlkuevv, and whole

* general Character is fo truly eflimable.

' Not having received any Commands from the King or his Minifters, which
' required your immediate Confideratiun, I poftpon'd the Heafuic ot meeting
' you in your Legiflativc Capacity, till a Time, that fiomthe beft Intornation

* I could procure, was Icail likely to interfere with your private Afiairs.

* Two Events have lately occurred of great Import to the Welfare
'' of the Britifli Nation, on which you have niy moil fincere and hearty

* Congratulations.—

* — The aufpicious Birth of a Prince, bn aDay ever farred toLiberty and the
' Proteftant Caufe, cannot but difFufe Joy throughout the King's Dominions,

* as it gives us the plcafing Profped of a Continuation to our F' fteiity, of thcfe

* ineftimable Bieflings of civil and religious Liberty, which \^c have enio)ed

* without Interruption, under the prefent Royal Family. —

' — The Termination of a long and burthenfomeWar, by the late Definitive

* Treaty, is an Event as happy as it is glorious. A Peace is obtained for us

* by the Succefs of his Majefiy's Arms, and the Wifdom and Firmnefs of his

* Councils, that cannot be parallel'd for .folid national Advantages, by any

* recorded in the Britifh Annals, if in thofe of any other Nation: For indeed

* how rarely does it happen, that thofe Powers who have been long engaged

* in War, find themfelves ultimately benefited bv it? Who of all the Princes

* of Europe, concerned in the late War, in which many of them had almoil:

* exhaufted their laft Refources, has acquired any Addirion of Territory, or

* any Compenfation for Loffes fuftained,fave only our moft illuftrious Sovereign?

* As in every Quarter of the Globe he was vidorious ; fo in every Q^iarter he

* has retained fome important Advantage, which the Nation was not in

* Poffeflion of before. But in this Part of the World, how great and glonous

* are our national Acquifitions! Inftead of confining us to a narrow Sea-Coafi:,
' which the French vainly attempted evenbefore the War, we fee that powerful
' Nation not only difpoflefiTed of their Encroachments, but of the veiy Country
' from whence they encroached: A Country of immenfe Extent, and which, ia

* our Poffeffion, not only gives eflfedual Security to thefe Colonies, but muil in

* a fhort Time occafion a vaft Increafe of the Commerce and Power of the

* Britifh Empire. The fteady Condudl of this Province during the Couife of

* the War, and its conftant Readinefsin complying chearfuliy according to its

* Abilities, with every Requifition of the Crown, for promoting the common

* Service, muft now afford you great Satisfadion in the Refledion, and will

* ever be reniembred highly to your Honour.

♦ Gentlemen of the General j^Jfembly,

' The Ad for the Support of Government being expired, you will of Courfs
' take that Matter into Confideration. In the doing of which, 1 flatter myftlF,

* that you will let the Royal Inftiudion my Predeceflbrs have fo often recom-

' nacndtd



•^ %



( s )

* mended to you on this Head, and which is entered on your Journals, have

* its proper Weight. And I have nottheleaft Doubt, but that you will likewife

* do therein what Juftice (hall appear to you to require, and what is becoming
' the Honour of the Province you reprefent.

* As you refide in different Parts of the Country,' you have the befl Oppor-
' tunities of being acquainted with its prefent Circumftances and Occaiions.
' If any new Laws, or Amendments of old Ones, appear to you to be neceffary,
' you may be affured of my ready Concurrence in every Thing confiilent with
' my Duty to the Crown, which I can never depart from, as I am perfuaded

* you would not wifh to deviate from yours j fince you muftbe convinced, that
' one of the fureft Means of promoting the Profperity and Happinefs of the

* People in any Colony, is to obtain and fecure, by a truly dutiful Behaviour,
' the Favour of their Sovereign, from whom they derive Protection in the
'Enjoyment of their Liberties, Properties, Religion, and every Thing that

* is valuable.

* Gentlemen of the Ceuncil, and Gentlemen of the General Ajfemhly,

* Let me recommend it to you, now the publick Tranquility is happily

* re-eftablilhed, to pay an earned Attention to the Arts of Peace. There are

* probably fome Kinds of valuable Produce, hitherto but flightly if at all

* attempted, that might with proper Encouragement be raifed in this Province,

* and tend much to the Advantage of the Inhabitants. Some Improvement

* mi.^ht no doubt be likewife made in the Navigation of Creeks and Rivers,

* and in the publick Roads By turning your Thoughts to thefe Matters, it

* may be reafonably expedted, that many Things will occur, which, if carried

* into Execution, would prove greatly beneficial nofonly to the Province, but

* to the Mother Country.

* The Affemblies of this Province have of late Years fo diflinguifhed them-

* felves for their general Unanimity, that it feems unneceffary to recommend it
' to them in their future Proceedings. I fliall only obferve, that its good

* Effedts have been confpicuous and evident to all, and therefore I hope it will
' always continue.

* As to myfelf, I am fully fenfible, it is not what is promifed, but what is
' done, in any Adminiflration, that muft finally fetde its Charadter. I (hall not

* therefore begin mine among you by making great Profeffions : But I hope in

* theCourfe of it, to demonftrate, by Adtions, that I think the moft effedlual

* Means of approving myfelf a faithful Servant to my Royal Mafter, is to
' promote the true Interefts of the Province, over which he has done me the

* Honour to place me, and to increafe by every Means in my Power, the general

* Welfare and Happinefs of its People.
