The Congress were informed by a Member that, amongst other Stores lately removed and put into the care of Colonel Peter Curtenius, there is a chest of excellent Lint for wounds, which ought to be carefully preserved, on account of the difficulty of obtaining that article; and that some Linen for bandages is also necessary.

Therefore Ordered, That Dr˙ John Jones and Dr˙ Treat be requested to take the charge and care of all the said Lint, and so much of the Medicines and Sheets now in the possession of Colonel Curtenius as they may think necessary for dressing of wounds, to be preserved for the use of such Hospital and Troops as shall hereafter be directed by the Provincial Congress, or Committee of Safety of this Colony.

And Ordered, That Colonel P˙ T˙ Curtenius deliver the said Lint, Medicines, and Sheets, to those gentlemen when it may be convenient for them to receive the same.
