Providence (Rhode-Island) County Committee



Providence, September 7, 1775.

Whereas there have been many complaints of such as are venders of goods and merchandise in this County, for selling them at a higher price than settled by the Association Agreement of the Continental Congress, under pretence of buying them at a higher rate, which we deem a breach and violation of said Association: We do hereby forewarn all persons from selling any goods at a higher price than they were usually sold at, before said Association took place, on any pretence whatever, as they will thereby incur the just censure of this Committee, and their names will be published to the world accordingly.
