April 25, 1772 Governor Habersham dissolves the Georgia House. Radical Noble Jones was once again selected by the House to be speaker. Jones knew that if he accepted the position then Governor Habersham would probably dissolve the House. There was a good deal of necessary business to be conducted, so Jones asked the House to select a new speaker. Archibald Bulloch was chosen in his place. Habersham was told of the choice, but not of the election of Jones prior to the election of Bulloch. When Habersham saw this in the minutes, he told the house to delete the reference. They refused. In response, Habersham dissolved the assembly.
