Letter to Governour Trumbull


A draught of a Letter to Jonathan Trumbull, Esq˙, was read and approved, and is in the words following, to wit:

In Provincial Congress, New-York, August 30, 1775.

SIR: Since writing you the 25th instant, we have been agreeably surprised to learn from our Commissary that he had purchased materials for a much larger number of tents than we imagined. We have therefore the pleasure to acquaint you that he has our orders to forward, with all


possible expedition, the number of tents required for Col˙ Hinman' s Regiment, so that you need give yourself no further trouble to provide materials for that purpose.

We are, Sir, most respectfully, your humble servants. By order of the Congress.

To the Honourable Jonathan Trumbull, Esq˙, Governour of the Colony of Connecticut.

Ordered, That a copy thereof be engrossed, and signed by the President pro tem˙, and transmitted.
