Islip Precinct, Suffolk County



At a town-meeting of the Freeholders and Inhabitants of the Precinct of Islip, in the said County, on the 13th day of May, Anno Domini 1775, it was agreed upon by the subscribers to assent to and acquiesce in the measures prescribed by the foregoing Association; but, from the small number of us, think it inexpedient to send a Deputy, but choose rather to abide by the determination of the other Deputies of the County. And as some of us are of the people called Quakers, we mean to act no further than is consistent with our religious principles. [Not one of the Quakers signed the Association.]
