December 1702

Dec. 1. 1208. [? William Popple] to William Penn. The Council of Trade and Plantations do not think your Answer [Nov. 30] altogether satisfactory, yet in order to the dispatch of your affair they are willing at present to acquiess with it. They mind you that by H.M. Order, Nov. 11, you are further required to declare under your hand that H.M. allowance of Col. Hamilton to be your Dep.-Gov. shall not be construed to diminish H.M. title to the Three Lower Counties, the performance whereof they expect, and will then forthwith order a letter to be writ for the taking of security of Col. Hamilton, as has been lately done in other the like cases. [C.O. 5, 1290. p. 261.]
