Petition from Robert Murray and John Murray


Wednesday, May 31, 1775.

The Petition of Robert Murray and John Murray, setting forth their sincere contrition for violating the Continental Association, and their determined resolution for the future strictly to observe the same, &c˙, was read, and ordered a second reading.

The Petition of Robert and John Murray was read a


second time; and, being now considered, it was unanimously resolved, that the petitioners, having made the best satisfaction in their power for their former breach of the General Continental Agreement, and expressed their resolution strictly to adhere to the same in future, ought to be restored to the favourable regard of their Country; and the said Robert and John Murray we accordingly restored to all the civil and commercial privileges which they heretofore enjoyed in this Province.
