Mr˙ Abraham Yates, from the Members of Albany, brought in a draught of a Letter to Walter Livingston, Esq˙, the Deputy Commissary-General at Albany, relating to the accounts of Ferrymen, for ferrying Soldiers in that County, which was read and approved of and is in the words following, to wit:

In Provincial Congress at New-York, October 18, 1775.

SIR: Upon application of the Members from Albany, representing the unsettled state of the ferrymen' s charges for carrying over the troops on their way to the seat of action, we think proper to inform you that we conceive those charges should be a Continental charge, and would recommend it to you to settle the same, that no obstruction may arise to the troops passing and repassing to and from that quarter.

We are, most respectfully, Sir, your very humble servants. By order:

To Walter Livingston, Esq˙, Deputy Commissary-General at Albany.

Ordered, That a copy thereof be engrossed, and signed by the President, and transmitted.
