Declarations of Committees of Suffolk County, New-York


Southold, October 25, 1776.

We, the Committee of Southold, in the County of Suffolk, being thoroughly convinced of the injurious and criminal tendency of our former meetings and resolutions, and willing to manifest our hearty disapprobation of all such


illegal measures, do hereby dissolve this Committee, and as far as in us lies revoke and disannul all former orders and resolutions of all Committees and Congresses whatsoever, as being undutiful to our lawful Sovereign, repugnant to the principles of the British Constitution, and ruinous in the extreme to the happiness and prosperity of this country.
