Letter received from the Inhabitants of Ulster County


A Letter, dated New-Windsor, 29th April last, signed by James Clinton and others, inhabitants of Ulster County, was presented to this Committee by Mr˙ Robert Boyd, Jun˙, requiring our advice and assistance in procuring Arms and Ammunition for their poor.

Resolved, That this Committee do earnestly recommend it to the gentlemen who have subscribed the said letters, and to their fellow-subjects in general, to adopt and sign an Association similar to that which has so cheerfully and generally been entered into by the inhabitants of the City, and to perfect themselves in military discipline as soon as possible; that with respect to purchasing Arms, this Committee will give all the advice in their power, but it will be necessary to raise money for that purpose by voluntary contributions in their County for equipping their poor inhabitants.
