ADDRESS PRESENTED TO HIS EXCELLENCY GOVERNOR GAGE, JUNE 11TH,
1774, ON HIS ARRIVAL AT SALEM.

To his Excellency Thomas Gage, Esq., Captain-General, Governor and
Commander-in-Chief of the Province of Massachusetts Bay in New
England, and Lieutenant-General of his Majesty's Forces.

May it please your Excellency:

We, merchants and others, inhabitants of the ancient town of Salem,
beg leave to approach your Excellency with our most respectful con-
gratulations on your arrival in this place.

We are deeply sensible of his Majesty's paternal care and affection
to this province, in the appointment of a person of your Excellency's ex-
perience, wisdom and moderation, in these troublesome and difficult times.

We rejoice that this town is graciously distinguished for that spirit,
loyalty, and reverence for the laws, which is equally our glory and hap-
piness.

From that public spirit and warm zeal to promote the general hap-
piness of men, which mark the great and good, we are led to hope under
your Excellency's administration for everything that may promote the
peace, prosperity, and real welfare of this province.

We beg leave to commend to your Excellency's patronage the trade
and commerce of this place, which, from a full protection of the liber-
ties, persons and properties of individuals, cannot but flourish.

And we assure your Excellency we will make it our constant en-
deavors by peace, good order, and a regard for the laws, as far as in
us lies, to render your station and residence easy and happy.
