Letter from Robert Goldsborough to the Committee for Somerset County


Copy of a Letter to the Committee of Observation for Somerset County:

November 18, 1775.

GENTLEMEN: In the inquiry into the charge exhibited by you against Isaac Atkinson, so far as the same was proceeded in, it was collected by that branch of the Council of Safety residing on the Eastern Shore, that Mr˙ Atkinson would rest his defence on the design and intention of his conduct in the matter he is charged with, he having alleged that his design was merely to oppose the proceedings of the people of the Presbyterian persuasion, and not the proceedings or resolutions of the Congress or the Convention.

It was therefore thought proper, by the board, that this should be communicated to the Committee of Observation for Somerset County; and I am directed by them to make this communication.


To the Committee of Somerset County.
