New-Hampshire Committee of Safety



In Committee of Safety at Portsmouth, November 23, 1775.

This may certify that Mr˙ John Stavers has been before us; declared that he believed the late acts of the British Parliament, complained of by the Americans, to be unconstitutional and unjust; and that he was determined, to the utmost of his power, to oppose them, and join with the people of this Colony in defending themselves against their now declared enemies, or words to the like purpose. Therefore, this Committee are of opinion that he ought not to be molested or hindered from his business by any person, on suspicion of his being unfriendly to the American cause, unless his future conduct should give occasion therefor.
