Proceedings of the Committee of Philadelphia


August 22, 1775.

Mr˙ Hunt attended the Committee, and after much conversation, requested to have the question proposed delivered to him in writing, with leave to answer it in the same way; on which Mr˙ Hunt was desired to withdraw.

Mr˙ Hunt was called in again. The Chairman informed him that an explicit answer ought now to be given, and that if he had it written the Committee would receive it; on which he declared he had nothing further to offer.

Resolved That Mr˙ Hunt' s conduct and declaration are by no means, satisfactory.
