The Letters from Sunbury


Saturday, September 30, 1775.

The House taking into consideration the several Letters sent down yesterday by the Governour, acquainting him with the intrusion of a number of People into this Province, under a pretended claim of the Colony of Connecticut, to the great annoyance of the good people of this Province,

Resolved, That the Delegates for this Province be specially directed to lay the same before the Congress, with the mischievous tendency the pursuing such measures will have, and procure the aid of that Assembly to quiet the minds of the good people of this Province, and prevent farther intrusion or extension of settlements under the said claim, until the matter shall be determined by the King and Council, to whom both sides have submitted the dispute.
