Description

Excerpt from Laws of New Hampshire, Vol. 3: Including Public and Private Acts and Resolves, Royal Commissions and Instructions, Notes and Appendix; Province Period, 1745-1774 While the people of the province performed their part loyally and well when the mother country was at war with her ancient rival, they were still jealous of any infringement of their rights, and their representatives in the Assembly resisted all attempts to subordinate the popular will to royal prerogative. For a period of three years - 1749, I750, 1751, - during the entire life of the forty-fifth General Assembly, there was such positive and deter mined disagreement between the Council and Assembly that abso lutely no legislation of any kind was enacted, this situation arising from the fact that certain new members, called by the Governor, from places not previously represented, were refused seats in the Assem bly, by that body, which claimed for itself the right to determine when and from what places new members should be called. Sim ilat conflict had more than once arisen, and afterwards arose, but no other such protracted dead-lock ever occurred over this or any other question in the history of the colony.
