Worcester County (Massachusetts Committee)



At a meeting of the Standing Committee for the County of Worcester, this 30th day of June, 1775:

Voted, That in the present critical situation of our publick affairs, when the Province is about assuming government, and many persons, by undue methods, may be seeking offices of profit and honour, we would offer for the consideration of the respective Towns in this County, whether it would not be expedient to instruct their several members to be very vigilant, and inquire into the characters of such as may be nominated for Counsellors; and also that they pitch on proper persons to recommend as respectable to fill up the respective executive and military offices, and that the substance of this vote be inserted in the Worcester paper.
