Maryland February 26th 1770.


A Copy of the resolutions of the House of Burgesses of the Colony of Virginia entered into the 16th of May last being sent to me by the Honble Speaker, was laid before the House of Delegates of this Province at their Session in November last who upon full consideration thereof were of Opinion they could not more clearly evince their approbation of the Conduct of the very respectable House of Burgesses of His Majestys ancient Colony of Virginia on so alarming an occasion than by readily and unanimously entering into resolutions of a Similar Nature—a Copy of which in obedience to their Order I now transmit to you—as I do to the Speakers of all the other Houses of Assembly on the Continent, and am with the greatest respect.

Sir, Your most Obed Servt
ROBt LLOYD, Speaker
