v3:1574

Letter from the Committee of Observation for Worcester County to the Eastern Shore Council of Safety:

November 15, 1775.

GENTLEMEN: Enclosed you have a deposition of a very alarming nature, which we think it our duty to communicate to you, and desire that it may, as speedily as possible, be taken into consideration.

We and the rest of the friends of liberty in this County are in a bad situation; we have no ammunition, and the Tories exceed our number. We hope you will send us assistance as soon as you can. Mr˙ Dennis, the bearer hereof, who is Clerk of our Committee, will give you such information of our affairs here as will clearly evince the necessity of something being done, and that speedily.

We are, Gentlemen, respectfully, yours,

ROBERT DONE,
HENRY JOHNSON,
PETER CHAILLE.
