His Excellency communicated to this Board his several letters of correspondence with Mr Stuart the Superintendent of Indian Affairs received since the setting of the last [session] of Assembly and proposed from the importance of the service of running the dividing Line between the Western Frontiers of this Province, and the Cherokee Hunting Grounds to be present himself at the same, and therefore desired the opinion of this Board of the expediency of his intentions, upon which it is unanimously the opinion of this Board, That His Excellencys presence on this Service will be attended with many great advantages and is justly to be considered as a strong proof of his attention to the Interests of the province.
Then His Excellency took the opinion of this Board whether the General Assembly of this Province, which now stands prorogued to the 8th day of June next, should not be prorogued to a longer day as His Excellency knows of no business that necessarily required their attendance at that time. The same being taken into consideration it is the unanimous advice of this Board, that the said Assembly be prorogued to Wednesday the 2d day of December, Ordered that a proclamation issue accordingly to wit
By His Excellency William Tryon Esq &c
Whereas the General Assembly of this Province stands prorogued to the eighth day of June next, I have thought proper, by and with the Advice and consent of his Majestys Council, further to prorogue
Given under my hand and the Great Seal of the said Province at Wilmington this 16th day of April 1767.Signed,WILLIAM TRYON.Benjamin Heron Secty.
