Board of Trade and Plantations to the Governor of
Virginia

Whitehal. Aug* the 2P* 1700
Sir

We have rec'd yo' Letter of the 10"" of June last, with many
Papers therein mentioned and referred to.

We congratulate the Success you have had in yo'' late Enter-
prize against the Pirats ; And take this occasion to tell you that
wee hope that all difficulties that might arise about the Conduct
of the Governors of any of his Majesties Plantations towards
Piratts will hereafter be in great measure removed, by an Act
past here the Last Session of Parliam' for the more Effectuall
Suppression of Pyracy, And the Comissions w*^"^ are now pre-
paring to be sent thither in pursuance of y^ s'^ Act, not doubting
but the same will also be very Effectuall towards the Suppres-
sion of Pyracy as intended.

What you write concerning Navigation Bonds (w'=^ we take
to be much what y^ same Case in Virginia as in Maryland) is
proper for y^ consideracon of the Com" of the Customs, & by
them to be laid before y^ L"*^ Comission" of y'^ Treasury from
whom all Directions in matters relateing to his Maj"^« Revenue
must come; and there are many other things in yo"" s*^ Letter
w"^ belong to y^ Care of y^ Lords Com" of y^ Admiralty, &
others to other Offices concerning w'''^ you have not observed
y" advice and the reason of our so advising w"^ we gave you in
Ours of y^ 4*'' of January last, and have thereby left us doubtful
whether it were necessary for us to Comunicate y^ Copies of
what we receive from you unto them, or what else might be
fit for us to do therein, w'^'' inconvenience we therefore againe
intreat you for y® future to prevent.

The Care you promise in advancing his majesties Revenue, &
y** hopes you express of being able in a year or two to Build a
house for his Maj*'^^ Governor are very acceptable things, and
as we doubt not of yo"" endeavours therein we hope they will
accordingly prove Successfull.

We are glad also to Observe that you were taking care about
the Revisal of the Lawes of Virg'a according to what we Ex-
plained to you of the Sence of his Maj*''^' Instruccon ab* that



COUNCIL PAPERS. 267

matter, in our aforesaid Letter of y' 4*^ of January; And hope
we shall accordingly e're long receive them so Revised, that we
thereby may be enabled to consider them in Order, & offer our
opinion thereupon to his Maj*'®, w'^'' we cannot now. do upon
these last rec'd, for want of a perfect & Authentick Collection of
the whole, And we desire you therefore to make what dispatch
you can therein.

We have found an inconvenience from some of his Maj*'*'^
Plantations, in having private Acts fastened together under the
same Seal with those y* are of a public nature, the one proving
sometimes an obstruccon to y^ dispatch of y^ other; And we
therefore desire you (as we have done other Governors) when-
soever any such private Acts come to be past in Virginia to take
care y* they be sent each of y'm under a Separate Seal, and that
the persons concerned therein be advised to direct some of their
friends here to Sollicit their Dispatch with the Attorney or Solli-
citor Generall and to furnish those friends with all memorials
necessary to enable y'm to give information in any Doubts or
Enquiries that may be made thereupon.

Tho' M"" Penn have given us a particular account of his hav-
ing applied himself (since his arrival in Pensilvania) to y^ refor
mation of the irregularities w"'' have been in y* Province, it is
very acceptable to us to receive the confirmation thereof from
You, and to understand yo"" readiness to Correspond w*'' him
as w*'* the Earle of Bellemont & Colonel Blakiston, in anything
for his Maj*''=* Service; And whensoever it shall happen that you
can all of you meet together to consult of y^ mutual Welfare of
your respective Govemm*^, we cannot but hope some good
effect from it.

Having lately rec'd a L'" from M"" John Moore, desiring y*
some Salary may be appointed for his Service as Advocate in
the Admiralty Court of Pensilvania, in which place he says you
had put him, we desire you to let him know y' we writ you the
4^'' January last upon the like occasion, (viz') That when any
Salaries are Settled upon the like Officers in other places, we
shal be ready to propose that y° same be done for him; But
that the Consideracon of y' matter belonging more properly to



268 VIRGINIA HISTORICAL MAGAZINE.

the Lords of the Treasury, or Lords of the Admiralty, we do not
at present think it fit for us to move anything in it.

Upon what you write of the difficulty to get a Quorum of
Councellors to meet together and about Colonel Lee's desiring
to be discharged from attending upon that Service, we have
offered to their Excellencies the Lords Justices out Opinion that
he may be discharged accordingly, and that M' Lewis Burwell
may be constituted a Member of his Majesties Coimcil in Vir-
ginia in his stead.

We have ordered oiu* Secretary to write to you upon some
other heads of less moment; And so referring you for those mat
ters to his Letter; We bid you heartily farewell

Your very Loving Friends
