COLONEL MOYLAN TO THE COMMITTEE OF SAFETY OF SALEM.

Cambridge, December 5, 1775.

GENTLEMEN: The brig Kingston Packet, Samuel Ingersoll, master, was taken at Barington, in Nova-Scotia, on suspicion of being engaged in business contrary to the Association of the United Colonies. His Excellency cannot be a competent judge of such matters; if he was, he has no time to attend to them. He therefore commands me to lay the papers which came to his hands before you, and whatever you determine on will meet the General' s approbation. It is told his Excellency that the brig was to proceed to Cape Fran├žois with her cargo; should she be permitted to proceed or not, you must be the judges.

I am, with great respect, gentlemen, your most humble servant,

STEPHEN MOYLAN, P˙ T˙ S.
