Proclamation of Governour Martin


North-Carolina, ss.

By His Excellency JOSIAH MARTIN, Esquire, &c˙, A PROCLAMATION.

Whereas several Resolves appear on the Journals of the House of Assembly, now sitting, tending to alienate the affections of His Majesty' s subjects, and subvert the Constitution; and whereas the longer existence of such an Assembly is incompatible with the honour of the Crown and the safety of the people: I have therefore thought fit, by and with the advice and consent of His Majesty' s Council, to dissolve the said Assembly, and it is accordingly dissolved.

Given under my hand, &˙c˙, at Newbern, &c˙, this 8th day of April, 1775, &c˙

GOD save the King.
