Association Returned from Easthampton


Mr˙ Thomas Wickham delivered the General Association, in a book signed by the Freeholders and Inhabitants of the Town of East Hampton, with a certificate thereto, subscribed by John Chatfield, Chairman, certifying that every male in the Town of East Hampton, capable of bearing arms, has signed the said Association.

Mr˙ McDougall moved (and was seconded by Mr˙ Yates) that the sense of this Congress be taken, whether the Troops to be raised in this Colony shall be clothed in Uniform.

Debates arose thereon, and it was deferred for farther consideration.

The Congress then adjourned to nine o' clock to-morrow morning.
