Letters Considered


Tuesday, May 23, 1775.

The Committee appointed to consider the Letter from Brownfield, reported, that they find by the bearer of the Letter that the inhabitants have some Arms, Powder, &c˙, and are not in danger, except from Indians, who are friendly at present; and the state of our affairs calls for such large supplies, that the consideration of their request be deferred till the sitting of the next Congress.

The Report was accepted, and Mr˙ Israel Hobart was


directed to inform the bearer of the Letter of the action of Congress thereon.
