Meeting of Mecklenburgh County Committee


Saturday, May 13, 1775.

The Committee met according to adjournment, and came to the following Resolves:

The Resolves of the Convention held at the Town of Richmond, the 20th of March, 1775, were read, and unanimously approved of.

Resolved, That the thanks of this Committee be presented to Robert Burton and Bennett Goode, Esquires, our worthy Delegates, for their faithful discharge of the important trust reposed in them.

Resolved unanimously, That the removal of the Gunpowder out of the Magazine, by express orders of Lord Dunmore, is truly alarming; and that by his answer for such conduct to the Mayor, Recorder, Aldermen, and Common Council of the City of Williamsburgh, on that important occasion, he has highly forfeited all title to the confidence of the good people of Virginia.

Ordered, That the Clerk send copies of these Resolves to each of the Printers, and they are desired to publish them in their next Gazettes.
