In Council: Whereas, a Committee of both Houses have been appointed for signing and numbering the Bills of Credit for the seventy-five thousand Pounds emission; and as the publick affairs of the Colony press hard upon the Board, they cannot, (without injuring the publick,) spare any of their Members in the hours they usually sit upon business, therefore,

Resolved, That Colonel Cushing, with such as the honourable House shall join, be a Committee to take into consideration the matter of signing and numbering said Bills, and report some effectual mode of raising a Committee for that purpose, so that the Treasury may be seasonably supplied.

In the House of Representatives: Read, and concurred, and Colonel Thompson and Mr˙ Crane are joined.
