A draft of a Letter to the Committee of Rhincbeck Precinct was read and approved of; and is in the words following, to wit:

GENTLEMEN: Your letter of the 13th Instant, directed to the member attending from the County of Dutchess, was this day presented by Mr˙ Everson, and immediately taken into consideration.

The Committee, confiding in the prudence of the Rhinebeck Committee in apprehending and securing those persons whose conduct is inimical, and where their confinement is absolutely necessary for the peace and security of the Precinct, highly approve of your conduct with respect to Doughty, Lester, and Klein.

Enclosed is the copy of an order transmitted to the Committee of Kingston; relative to the support of your prisoners, now in their custody.

As the meeting of a new Congress is near at hand, this Committee does not think it prudent to make the order more general at present, leaving the matter for the consideration of Congress on future application.

We are, gentlemen, your very humble servants.

To the Chairman and Members of the Committee of Rhinebeck Precinct, Dutchess County.

Ordered, That a copy thereof be engrossed, and signed by the Chairman, and transmitted.
