Signers and Objectors against the Association in Suffolk County


We, the subscribers, do most solemnly declare that the claims of the British Parliament to bind at their discretion the people of the United Colonies in America in all cases whatsoever, are, in our opinions, absurd, unjust, and tyrannical; and that the hostile attempts of their Fleets and Armies to enforce submission to those wicked and ridiculous claims ought to be resisted by arms; and therefore we do engage and associate, under all the ties which we respectively hold sacred, to defend by arms these United Colonies, against the said hostile attempts, agreeable to such laws or regulations as our representatives in the Congress or future General Assemblies of this Colony have or shall for that purpose make and establish.
