To His Honour George Walton, Efquire, Governor and Commaader in Chief of the faid State. WE, the Reprefentatives of the Freemen of Georgii, in AffembJy met, beg ieave to inform your Honour of your unanimous election to the office of Governor of this State. 7 The firm confidence we repofe in your abilities, and fteady attachment to the independence of our country, give us full affurancs that, under your ad mini ft ration, a perfeverence fn thofe exertions which have hitherto characterized the faithful councils of this country, will take pkice. Sir, We have configned to your care a facred trufl, ' the government of a people who have bled fretly in the caufe of the confederal alliance; and are determined to feal the attempt of redeeming this country with the bfocd of all, rather than fubmit to the detefted and abominable yoke of Britiffi rule. William Glascock, Speaker. , To the Honorable the Speaker, and the reft of the Members of the Affembly of the State of Georgia. Mr. Speaker and Gentlemen, I AM thankful for the , honor of your appointment and polite addreft of yefterday : But I had been hopeful, from the late afflictions with which it has plea fed Heaven to vific me, that I (hould nor have been required, at this time, to take an active flatten in your affairs : Nor would any thing but the fituation of the State; calling for the af - fi fiance of every man, induce me to accept it. Relying upon your faithful fupport, I hall ufe my beft efforts to enforce the laws for the fafety and welfare of the people. On your part much may done. - - - - The conftitution, and the laws, call fer a vigorous fupport, to prevent otherwife unavoidable anarchy; A reprefeotatibn at Con - trefs is moft effentially ceceffary s TJ?e well - being of owr State 1 the exiRence of its independency ; and the balance offufFerage upon quetf ion determinable by inevitable in - tereft all depend upon it Nor is the reflorafion of credit to our paper circulation lefs important. The enemy efchaufted by great exertions, may chiife to rfl: all in one concluding effort the eafutng winner; and therefore it is Incumbent to make the moft fpeedy and effectual preparations for the fafety of the State. A corps of horfemen to watch the motions of the enemy and the Indians, and furHcient to keep out the thieves from both, fhould immediately be rtifed. Decifive meafores fhould be purfued sgainft the unhappy but dangerous few, who will live amongft us - and yet love our enemies ! My late fitua - tion gave me an opportunity of feeing, that, byperfons of thisdefcription, the councils of the States arebttrayed: By our laws, it is already criminal to correfpond with or fend intelligence to the enemy $ but fome certain and effectual mode of detection might be pointed out and authd rized.

Let us not, therefore, difpsr j butchearfuJly bear every prefent ill, rather than admit an idea of a partial accom - medation with the enemy. Real fervices from our illuf - trious and mofl friendly ally, are complete proofs of tke finteriry of his intentions 5 and the junction of Spain and Sweden in the war are new pillars to the independency of America, which no earthly powers, io my judgment, can fkake.
