Letter from Kingston (Ulster County) Committee to New-York Committee of Safety


"Kingston, January 27, 1776.

"GENTLEMEN: We have received the prisoners sent to us by Captain Van Wyck. After perusing your letter and orders relative to the prisoners, we ordered, a guard of our Grenadiers to take them, and sent them, pursuant to your orders, to our jail, where they will be safe, we think.

"In any respect, where we can be of service to the cause of American liberty, we cheerfully and willingly will do, to guard against the machinations, schemes, and stratagems, of the common foes of the American liberty.

"We respectfully remain, gentlemen, your most obedient. By order of the Committee present:


"To the Honourable Committee of Safety, New-York."
