In General Committee



Charlestown, South Carolina, February 8, 1775.

Inasmuch as the Colony of Georgia hath not acceded to the Continental Association entered into by the General Congress at Philadelphia, on the 20th of October last; therefore, and in conformity to the Resolutions of the said General Congress,

Resolved, That we will, from henceforth, have no Trade, Commerce, Dealings, or Intercourse, with the said Colony of Georgia; but will hold them as unworthy of the rights of freemen, and as inimical to the liberties of their country: provided that this Resolution shall not be construed to extend to the inhabitants of this Colony now having Plantations in Georgia, so as to prevent them from bringing their Crops into this Colony; or to such persons resident in this Colony as now have debts due to them in Georgia, so as to prevent them from receiving payment of such debts there, in money, or in the commodities of that Colony, they having such commodities shipped from thence to Europe.

Ordered, That copies of the above Resolution be transmitted to all the Northern Colonies.
