Gentlemen of the Council and Houfe of Reprefentatives, kURING the Recefs of the Court I have received ^ _ two Packets from Lieutenant-Governor Mafcarene; in the former of which he infjurmh me, That the three Companies, which I firft feat from hence to reinforce the Garrifon underius Command, upon the late Intelligence of alargeBodyof Canadeans being aSenibled at Minas, and the Appearance of the French Fleet upon the Coaft of Nova-Scotia, had enabled him to aft offensively againft the Enemy, and defires.fuch a further Reinforcement from /� SldpCaeffer, latelfarriy'd ap^lis.-he adgifaane of &e French Ithe Coaft*: and-the Canadeans being , __rw_^Tjg.fiom Annapolis, wuh a De%n of �leaving:Ptrty tl^winter at Schiegne&o, and that the Re-in^rcemeitt which he'hadteceived from me, together with . the CnefteT tent him by Admiral Warren from hence, and Jtbe\ ShirJgy.
