understand their Majesties have been graciously pleased to approve of, and impowered you to continue the same till further order; and we, who were under your government, having been for some time destitute of power sufficient to put ourselves into a capacity of defence against the common enemy; and having, with great expectation, awaited their Majesties' order for a settlement amongst us, which, not yet arriving, considering how liable also we are to destruction by the enemy, which of ourselves we cannot prevent, we are therefore necessitated at present to supplicate your Honors for government and protection, as formerly, until their Majesties' pleasure shall be known concerning us: hereby obliging ourselves to a due submission thereto, and payment of our equal proportion (according to our capacity), of the charge that shall arise for the defence of the country against the common enemy; praying also that such persons may be commissionated to command the militia as have already been or shall be chosen by the trained soldiers in the respective towns, desiring your Honors to grant us this our request, and your petitioners shall ever pray.
