By duly certified polls, taken by proper persons, in seven Wards, it appears that James Duane, John Jay, Philip Livingston, Isaac Low, and John Alsop, Esquires, were elected as Delegates for the City and County of New-York, to attend the Congress at Philadelphia, the first day of September next; and at a Meeting of the Committees of the several Districts in the County of Westchester, the same gentlemen were appointed to represent that County; also by a letter from Jacob Lansing, Junior, Chairman, in behalf of the Committee for Albany, it appears that that City and County had adopted the same for their Delegates. By another letter it appears that the Committees from the several Districts in the County of Dutchess, had likewise adopted the same as Delegates to represent that County in Congress, and that Committees of other Towns approve of them as their Delegates.

By a writing, duly attested, it appears the County of Suffolk, in the Colony of New-York, have appointed Colonel William Floyd to represent them in Congress.
