Seite 300 - ... so soon as the state and circumstances of the said colonies will admit thereof, they shall with the advice and consent of the members of our council, summon and call general assemblies within the said governments respectively in such manner and form as is used and directed in these colonies and provinces in America which are under our immediate government...
