A memo in English states that this proclamation was the same as the preceding except for one clause, viz., P. in order to show his good will, permits the bearer of this to disembark and sell fifty bushels of grain to the people at Chignecto, without first making the usual entry at Annapolis.

Philipps to the Habitans of Annapolis River.

As it may conduce to the King's service and the welfare of the habitans, to have free access to the Governor, and the opportunity of declaring their intentions in regard to H. M. Govt., P. orders them to choose on May 4th, 1720, O. S., six deputies to act for them, whenever necessary.

Orders J. D. to read enclosed proclamation in full assembly and post it afterwards on the chapel door, that no one may pretend ignorance. Will be glad to do anything for him, not contrary to his instructions.

May 2 O.S.
Annapolis.

Philipps to Durand.

Surprised to find that D. had left his parish without leave. The Lieut. Gov. had given him a good character. P.'s treatment of him and of the habitans has certainly given him no cause for apprehension. There is no cause for alarm, as P. intends to treat all with mildness: and, notwithstanding D.'s conduct, P. has a high regard for him, and is ready to meet all reasonable requests.
(signed.)
