Moses Gill, Esq˙, brought down the Report of the Committee appointed to examine Mr˙ Edward Parry, viz:

"In Council, August 9, 1775.

"The Committee appointed to examine Mr˙ Edward Parry, &c˙, have attended that service, and, considering his close connection with, and dependance on persons employed by the Crown, his disposition to supply our enemies with masts, planks, &c˙, contrary to the known sentiments of this people, and that his being restrained from doing it he considers as acts of violence and injustice, all which appear under his own hand, beg leave to report, as their opinion, that the said Edward Parry be immediately sent to some inland Town, which shall be more than seventy miles distant from all the seaports in this Colony, there to be detained and provided for by the Selectmen of such Town, until the further order of this Court.


"Read and accepted. Sent down for concurrence."
