Information received from Mr. Carter


In Povincial Congress, New-York, August 19,1775.

GENTLEMEN: We enclose you short notes of information we received of Mr˙ John Carter, who left Boston a


few days since. Mr˙ Carter will speedily be at Philadelphia, and can give you more fully and particularly the information we received of him.

You will, no doubt, gentlemen, make such inquiries as to discover whether the owners of the Ship Sally, as well as of Mr˙ White' s Schooner, did not ship their respective cargoes with design to supply the Ministerial Fleet and Army at Boston, which there is but too much reason to suspect.

We are, most respectfully, Gentlemen, your most obedient humble servants.
