" His Majesty’s Council being appointed to meet
" at my House to Morrow at Eleven o’Clock in the
" forenoon, to Consider what Steps it may be proper
" to Take for the Security of the Province against
" any Attempt that may be made to Annoy us from
" Canada or Louisbourg in Case of a Rupture, or
" any violent Measures the French may take by
" way of resenting the Check that has lately been
" given to their encroachments."
" I am to acquaint You that it is both agreeable
" to the Instructions I have received from His Ma-
" jesty, and at the earnest Request of his Council
" for this Province, that I beg the honour of your
" Company and Assistance at our Consultation."(Signed) CHAS. LAWRENCE."
