Address of the Grand Jury of Frederick County, Maryland

v1:993

Address of the Grand Jury of FREDERICK County, MARYLAND, to the Honourable MATTHEW TILGHMAN, THOMAS JOHNSON, ROBERT GOLDSBOROUGH, WILLIAM PACA, and SAMUEL CHASE, Esquires:

We, the Grand Inquest for Frederick County, deeply impressed with a sense of the regard you have on all occasions, but more particularly at the late American Congress, manifested for the interests, the rights and liberties of your country, deem it incumbent on us in this manner to testify our warmest esteem and gratitude. Permit us, gentlemen, to observe, that Councils tempered with such filial loyalty to the Sovereign, such fraternal delicacy for the sufferings of our friends in Great Britain, and, at the same, with such unshaken zeal for the preservation of the inestimable privileges derived from our admirable Constitution, cannot fail to give weight and influence to the cause, and must moderate and relax the minds of our most poignant enemies.

Signed per order,

HENRY GAITHER, Foreman.
