Letter to Zephaniah Platt


Copy of a Letter to Zephaniah Platt, Esquire, Poughkeepsie, Dutchess County:

SIR: We received your favour of the 20th instant, enclosing the Resolves of the inhabitants of your precinct, and acquainting that you confide in the Delegates chosen by our citizens to represent them in the general Congress. What good can be effected time must discover, but we are


confident our Delegates, (and we trust those from the other Colonies,) will go with hearts most sincerely and zealously disposed to render the measure productive of every happy consequence that can be reasonably expected from their united councils on matters of so truly important and serious a nature. We are, gentlemen, your most humble servants,

By order of the Committee.

The Committee adjourned until Monday, 29th August, 1774.
