[Read in Congress June 19, 1775.]

In Provincial Congress, New-York, June 15, 1775.

SIR: You will see by the enclosed order , that this Congress think it expedient to request you to march to this Colony with the troops under your command. If you are not at liberty to comply with the terms of this order until you consult the Governour and Company of Connecticut on this subject, we beg you would immediately despatch this requisition to them, and transmit to us their determination as soon as possible.

As we have at present but few tents, we beg you would order such as you have, to be sent to the place intended for their encampment, and make such oilier dispositions for the support of your troops as are in your power.

We are, Sir, your very humble servants.

By order and on behalf of the Provincial Congress:
P˙ V˙ B˙ LIVINGSTON, President.

To Major-General Wooster, at Greenwich.
