ELIZABETHTOWN (NEW-JERSEY) COMMITTEE TO NEW-YORK COMMITTEE.

Elizabethtown, Monday, July 17, 1775.

GENTLEMEN: We have this moment received from the Committee of Philadelphia four hogsheads, said to contain fifty-two quarter-casks of powder, which they direct to be conveyed to Dobbs' s Ferry, there to be delivered to the order of your Committee. We are sorry to say, that this powder has been coming from Philadelphia since the first instant; this accidental delay makes the utmost despatch necessary, which we doubt not you will promote as far as is in your power. We are, Gentlemen, your most humble servants,

JONA˙ HAMPTON, Chairman.

To the Chairman of the Committee of the City of New-York.

P˙ S. The powder will be at Dobbs' s Ferry by nine o' clock to-morrow morning.
