122 | To the Earl of Egremont


    Boston June 7. 1762.

    My Lord

    I had the honor by my letter of Ap. 16502 to inform your Lordship that the Assembly of this province have obeyed his Majesty’s commands, as signified by your Lordship, in the fullest manner. I have now to add that the powers granted to me for raising the provincial troops were executed with a spirit not known before; the regiments having been complete & ready to march before the end of April.

    It will be agreable to your Lordship to know that there is the most perfect Harmony in the Government of this Province: as a proof of which I beg leave to enclose the address of the House of Representatives, the professions of which do not exceed their real disposition. I must at the same time do them the justice to declare that this disposition does not arise from Management, but from a conviction that the Support of his Majesty’s Government is their true intrest

    I am, with great respect, My Lord, Your Lordship’s most obedient and most humble Servant

    Fra. Bernard

    The Right Honble The Earl of Egremont.
