Committee to wait on the Council of Safety, respecting the advices from Virginia


The Committee then resumed the consideration of the Letter from the Council of Safety of Virginia, and thereon

Resolved, That Messrs˙ John Smith, Benjamin Nicholson, and John Sterrett, three of their Members, do wait on the Council of Safety at Annapolis, early to-morrow morning, with the packet directed to them, as they think it of too much importance to be trusted by a common express; and that they carry with them the Letters above referred to, in order to lay them before the Council of Safety, lest their packet might not contain the same intelligence; and that they take with them Mr˙ Jeremiah Townley Chase, one of the Committee, who is now at Annapolis.

Attested: GEORGE LUX, Secretary.
