Letter from a Member of the Assembly of New Jersey


Extract of a Letter from one of the members of the House of Assembly of NEW-JERSEY, and one of the Committee of Correspondence, which consists of nine members.

Dated JUNE 2, 1774.

"I returned yesterday from New-Brunswick, where six of our Committee met. We answered the Boston letters, informing them that we look on New-Jersey as eventually in the same predicament with Boston, and that we will do every thing which may be generally agreed on. We have signed a request to the Governour to call the General Assembly, to meet at such time as his Excellency may think proper, before the first of August next. Our Committee is well disposed in the cause of American freedom."
