Letter from the New-York Convention to General Washington


"SIR: I am directed by the Convention of the State of New-York to enclose to your Excellency sundry resolutions which they have entered into, in consequence of part of your letter of this date. The Convention have further measures in contemplation for the security of this State, which they conceive of the utmost importance to the general cause of America. So soon as they are determined on, I shall give your Excellency immediate notice; and at the same time answer your two letters of this date in a more particular manner than the hurry of business will at present admit of.

"I have the honour to be, most respectfully, &c.

"To his Excellency General Washington."
