Patrick Sinclair permitted to go to Britain on parole


A draft of a Letter to Captain Patrick Sinclair, was read and approved, and is in the words following, to wit:


In Committee of Safety, New-York, March 22, 1776.

SIR: On receipt of your late request to go to Britain, the Provincial Congress applied to the honourable Continental Congress for a permission for the purpose. Success having attended the application, we enclose you a copy of the permission, and hope it may come to your hands so early as to enable you to take the benefit of a passage in the packet, if it should be your desire. We presume the Committee of Huntington will accept of your parole, that you will go to Britain on your leaving Suffolk County.
