Letter to the Lords of Trade
Kingsbury June 11th 1744

I really fear the Quakers will intimidate the Assembly.

My Lords:
With this conveyance there is sent to yr Lps duplicates of the acts of Assembly, minutes of Councill and answers to your Lps queries. I reciev'd on ye 9th from his Grace the Duke of Newcastle his Majestie's declaration of war against the french King, which I have published. I intend to meet our Assembly on the 22d following, with intent to prevaile on them to render the militia more usefull if I can; but the treatment of a Chief Justice in the Lower Counties of Pensilvania who attempted to shew the necessity of doing so there, I fear will intimidate any members of our Assembly who are of that perswasion, or such as they can influence, from giving in to any thing of that kind here. I send Inclos'd an account of that matter lately publish'd for your Lps perusall & amusement, and am, my Lords, &c. emptyL. M.

To the Rt honble the board of trade & Plantations.
