Governor Lawrence to Lords of Trade, 3rd November, 1756

Document Summary:
Lawrence restates his objections to forming an Assembly:

"A House of Representatives in the present posture of affairs instead of obviating the inconveniences complained of would only serve to create heats, animosities and disunions amongst the people at a time when the enemy is as I may say at our doors…."

Furthermore, he does not believe that people are dissatisfied with the current state of affairs.
