Mr. Speaker, and you gentlemen of the Assembly, my person and behaviour in this Island is so well known to every one of you, that I am sure you cannot expect a formal speech from one, whose talent never lay that way.
I have gone through most of the offices of this Island, though with no great applause, yet without complaint.
It has pleased God ( and the King My Master ) to place me in this station; I shall by God's assistance endeavour to comport myself as well like a faithful servant and subject to him, as a true lover of my country.
Your liberties shall never be struck at by me. I have some small interest in this Island, which, had I no other consideration, would induce me, as far as it lies in my power, to support each particular in its just right; but then gentlemen give me leave to pray you will not be so unkind to me to propose anything which I may be forced to deny, for I can no more suffer an encroachment upon His Majesty's prerogative than I would desire my own or your properties should be invaded.
