Letter to the Committee of the City of Albany


In Provincial Congress, New-York, July 3, 1775.

GENTLEMEN: You will receive by the bearer fifty quarter casks of Gunpowder, sent from Philadelphia by the Continental Congress, for the use of the forts at Crown Point and Ticonderoga. You are sensible of the necessity of forwarding it with all possible despatch and safety, and will doubtless duly attend to a matter of so much importance. We are, gentlemen, your humble servants.

By order of the Provincial Congress.

To Samuel Stringer, esq˙, Chairman of the Committee at Albany.
