Relative to Men' s Inlisting Out of Other Than Their Own Towns


Resolve relative to Men' s inlisting out of other than their own Towns; passed JULY 3, 1776.

Whereas, by a late Resolve of this Court, the number of five thousand men are apportioned on, and to be raised in,


the several Towns in this Colony, agreeable to a schedule thereto annexed, and as some persons may be induced to inlist from other Towns than those in which they have their usual place of abode: Therefore,

Resolved, That all persons who shall inlist into any of the Battalions destined for Canada or New York, shall be considered as a part of the levy on their respective Towns, until such time as those Towns to which they respectively belong have inlisted their full complement of men, and not to those Towns in which they shall so inlist.
