COMMITTEE OF THE MASSACHUSETTS CONGRESS TO THE COMMITTEE OF INSPECTION, NEW-YORK.

Watertown, May 11, 1775.

GENTLEMEN: We are directed by the Congress of this Colony, who are just informed that two men-of-war, the Asia, and one other, with three or four companies of Troops on board, sailed yesterday from Boston for your place, to give you the earliest notice thereof.

It is supposed that they have orders to secure the ammunition and military stores in the Fort of your City, &c˙, and your noble exertions in the common cause have given the Congress reason to think that a timely information, relative to the matter, would be important to you. The post is now in waiting, which prevents us from indulging an inclination of enlarging. We are, respectfully, gentlemen, &c˙,

ELBRIDGE GERRY,
JAMES WARREN,
BENJAMIN LINCOLN.

Committee of Congress.
