Letter from John Palmer, Quartermaster General, to the Massachusetts Committee of Safety

v2:978

In Committee of Safety, Cambridge, June 13, 1775.

This Committee beg leave earnestly to recommend to the Honourable Congress, that the above representation from the Quartermaster General be taken into immediate consideration, especially as the Committee, from their own knowledge find the rooms too much crowded, and the healths and lives of the soldiers thereby greatly exposed; and if tents cannot be immediately furnished, that some barracks be forthwith erected.

BENJAMIN WHITE, Chairman.

N˙ B˙ It is presumed some lives are already lost from their being thus crowded.
