Stephen Moylan to Samuel Freeman

v3:1666

STEPHEN MOYLAN TO SAMUEL FREEMAN.

Cambridge, November 24, 1775.

SIR: I have it in command from his Excellency to acknowledge the receipt of your favour of the 17th instant. He approves much of what has been done by the General Court for the defence of your port, which he hopes will have every necessary effect.

Should any thing more be wanting, it is incumbent on the people of the country to exert themselves for their and the publick defence. The Congress are so much of that opinion, that they have recommended it to each of the Colonies to provide for their particular internal safety.

I have the honour to be, &c˙, STEPHEN MOYLAN.

To Samuel Freeman, Esq˙, Falmouth.
