with a view to party, has fortunately at the present day but few advocates. I ask, therefore a continuance of the candor and liberality of my fellow citizens while engaged in correcting these errors - a task which I assure them shall not be entailed upon my successor. Believing that your deliberations will be guided by a regard to the best interests of our constituents, and that your measures will be adopted to promote the welfare and honor of the State, you may rely on their receiving at all times my cordial approbation and support. William King. Council Chamber January 11th 1821
