TO THE COMMITTEE OF SAFETY AT CAMBRIDGE.

In General Assembly, Providence, May 6, 1775,

GENTLEMEN: Your favour of yesterday we received by express this morning. We are now pursuing every method in our power to have our men in readiness to take the field as early as possible; and you may rest assured that we will exert ourselves upon this important occasion; and that the Army we have voted to be raised, which is to consist of fifteen hundred men, will be supplied with all necessary stores and ammunition; and one company is to be furnished with six three-pounders. As soon as they are in readiness we will give you the earliest information thereof that they may be disposed of in such a manner as will best serve our common interest. I am, with great respect, gentlemen, your most humble servant. By order of the House:

METCALF BOWLER, Speaker.
