ALPHABETICAL LIST 



OF 



REVOLUTIONARY SOLDIERS. 



1TT5-1783. 



[The following alphabetical List of Soldiers of the War for Indepen- 
dence has been compiled chiefly from the Depreciation Account books 
in the office of the Auditor General of Pennsylvania. It is difficult to 
distinguish between those of the Line, the Association, Rangers, or Mil- 
itia and many of them, no doubt, appear in the rolls already published ; 
yet it has been deemed proper to print this list as it is. It contains 
nearly ten thousand names, and, as will be seen hereafter, but a small 
proportion of those heroes who gave us the heritage of liberty and free 
government wo enjoy.]

ADDRESS OF THE COMMITTEE OF CONFERENCE 



To the Associntors of Pennsylvania, June 25, 1776. 



Gentlemen : Tlie only design of our meeting together was to 
put an end to our own power in the Province by fixing upon a plan 
for calling a couveutiou to form a government under the authority 
of the people. But the sudden and unexpected separation of the 
Assembly has compelled us to undertake the execution of a resolve 
of Congress for calling forth 4,5U0 of the militia of the Province to 
join the militia of tlie neighboring colonies to form a camp for our 
immediate protection. We presume only to recommend the plan 
we have formed to you, trusting that in case of so much consequence 
your love of virtue and zeal for liberty will supply the want of au- 
thority delegated to us expressly for that purpose. 

We need not remind you that j'ou are now furnished with new 
motives to animate and support your courage. You are not about 
to contend against the power of Great Britain in order to displace 
one set of villains to make room for another. Your arms will not 
be enervated in the day of battle with the reflection that you are 
to risk your lives or shed your blood for a British tyrant, or that 
your posterity will have your work to do over again. You are about 
to contend for permanent freedom, to be supported by a government 
which will be derived from yourselves, and which will have for its 
object not the enrollment of one man, or class of men only, but the 
safety, liberty, and happiness of every individual in the community. 

We call upon you, tiierefore, by the respect and obedience which 
are due to the authority of the United Colonies, to concur in this 
important measure. Tlie present campaign will probably decide 
tlie fate of America. It is now in your power to immortalize your 
names by mingling your achievements with the events of the year 
1776— a year which we hope will be famed in the annals of history 
to the end of time, for establishing upon a lasting foundation the 
liberties of one quarter of the globe. 

Remember the honor of our Colony is at stake. Should you de- 
sert the common cause at the present juncture, the glory you have 
acquired by your former exertions of strength and virtue will be 
tarnished, and our friends and brethern who are now acquiring 
laurels in the most remote parts of America will reproacli us and 
blush to own themselves natives or inhabitants of Pennsylvania. 
But there are other motives before you— your liouses, your fields, 
the legacies of your ancestors, or the dear-bought fruits of your own 
industry and your liberty-now urge you to the field. These can- 



260 ASSOCIATED BATTALIONS 

not plead with you in vain, or we might point out to you further— 
your wives, your children, your aged fathers and mothers, who now 
look up to you for aid and hope for salvation in this day of calamity 
only from the instrumentality of your swords. Remember the 
name of Pennsylvania. Think of your ancestors and of your pos- 
terity

THE LANCASTER RESOLVES. 



Pursuant to tlie publication of the resolves of the Committee of 
Correspondence for tlie city and county of Philadelphia, there was 
held a meeting of a very respectable number of the freemen and in- 
habitants of the county of Lancaster, on Saturday, the 9th of July, 
1774, George Ross, Esq., in the chair. 

This assembly, taking into tlieir serious consideration the several 
late acts of the British Parliament relative to America, came un- 
animously to the following declarations and resolves, viz : 

1. We do sincerely profess and declare, that his most gracious 
Majesty King George the Third is our rightful and lawful sover- 
eign, and that we will at all times support and defend him to the 
utmost of our power, with our lives and fortunes, against his ene- 
mies. 

2. We do further declare that no power is constitutionally lodged 
in the hands of any body of men to give and grant our money, save 
only our representatives in assembly, who have at all times cheer- 
fully granted aids to his Majesty whenever he has made a requisi- 
tion from them. 

3. Tiiat the acts of the British Parliament for divesting us of 
such right, and assuming such iiower to themselves, are unconstitu- 
tional, unjust, and oppressive, 

4. That it is an indispensable duty we owe to ourselves and our 
posterity to oppose with decency and firmness every measure tend- 
ing to deprive us of our just rights and privileges. 

5. That a close union of the Colonies, and their faithful adhering 
to such measures as a general Congress shall judge proper, are the 
most likely means to jirocure redress of American grievances and 
settle the rights of the Colonies on a permanent basis. 

6. That it is highly expedient to appoint a committee, to meet the 
committee of the other counties of this Province at Philadelphia, 
on the loth instant, to confer with them on the important matters 
mentioned in the letter from the chairman of the committee of 
Philadelphia. 

7. That we will sincerely and heartily agree to and abide by the 
measures which shall be adopted by the members of the general 
Congress of the Colonies. 

8. That we do tenderly sympathize witli our brethren of Boston, 
who are suffering in the American cause by an unconstitutional 
and oppressive act of the British Parliament, called the Boston Port 
Bill. 

9. That a subscrii)tion be opened for the relief of our suffering 
brethren there.

274 ASSOCIATED BATTALIONS 

10. That tlie su'oscription be put into the hands of the committee 
of tliis county, to be by tiiem hiid out intlie purchase of provisions 
and sent to Boston towards the relief of tlieir distresses. 

11. Tliat tlie committee for the borough of Lancaster already ap- 
pointed be a Committee of Correspondence ; and that George Ross, 

arnes Webb, Matthias Slough, Joseph Ferree, Emanuel Carpenter, 
and William Atlee, Esquires, Mr. Alexander Lowry, and Mr. Moses 
Ervvin be the committee to meet and consult with the committees 
of tlie other counties of this Province at Philadelphia, the 15th in- 
stant, and also to join with the Committee of Correspondence in 
receiving subscriptions. 

It was tlien moved that the thanks of the freemen and inhabi- 
tants present siiould be rendered to the worthy chairman for the 
very proper and spirited address made by him to this assembly, re- 
plete with the warmest expressions of loyality to his Majesty, and 
fervent zeal for the common interests of America, which motion 
was agreed to by a general holding up of hands, and the thanks 
of the assembly were then presented to Mr. Ross for his patriotic 
conduct upon this occasion. 

Ebeuiiart Michael, 
Clerk. 

A subscription was then immediately opened by the committee 
for the benefit of our suffering brethren of the town of Boston, and 
very handsome sums subscnbed by several of the persons present ; 
and at the request of numbers of the reputable inhabitants, papers 
are printed and sending to the different townships to receive the 
subscriptions of the inhabitants of tliis county, wliich it is expected 
will amount to a considerable sum, and will be collected as expedi- 
tiously as possible by the committee and laid out as shall be thought 
best to answer tlie good purpose intended. 

A paper was delivered by Mr. Elijah Wickersham to the chairman 
at this meeting, and read by him, containing similar resolves (with 
the above) of the freemen of the townships of P.ixtang and Derry, 
at their meeting at the town of Middletown, on the Sth last past,

William Atlee, a meeting was held on the loth day of June, 1774, 
and the following resolves were agreed on, viz: 

At a meeting of tlie inhabitants of the borough of Lancaster, at 
the court liouse in the said borough, on Wednesday, the 15th day 
of June, 1774: Agreed — that to preserve the constitutional rights 
of the iniiabitants of America, it- is incumbent on every Colony to 
unite and use the most effectual means to procure a repeal of the 
late act of Parliament against the town of Boston. 

That the act of Parliament for blocking up the port and harbor 
of Boston is an invasion of the riglits of the inhabitants of the said 
town, as subjects of tlie crown of Great Britain. That it is the 
opinion of tlie iniiabitants at this meeting that the proper and ef- 
fectual means to be used to obtain a repeal of tlie said act, will be 
to put an immediate stop to all imports and exports, to and from 
Great Britain, until tiie same act be repealed. 

That the traders and inhabitants of this town will join and con- 
cur with tlie patriotic merchants, tradesmen, and freeholders of 
tlie city and county of Philadelphia, and other parts of this Pro- 
vince, in an association or solemn agreement to this purpose, if the 
same shall be by them thought necessary. 

That Edward Shippen, Esq., George Ross, Esq., Jasper Yeates, 
Esq., Mattliias Slough, Esq., James Webb, Esq., William Atlee, 
Esq., William Henry, Esq., Mr. Ludwig Lauman, Mr. William 
Bausman, and Mr. Cliailes Hall be a committee to correspond witii 
the general committee of Philadeljiliia ; that these sentiments be 
immediately forwarded to the Committee of Correspondence at 
Philadelphia. 

Tlie gentlemen above named, after being chosen and appointed a 
Committee of Correspondence, resolved upon the following letter 



276 ASSOCIATED BATTALIONS 

to be transmitted to tlie committee of Philadelpliia, directed to Mr. 
Cliarles Thompson, and is as follows, viz : 

Lancaster, the I5ih June, 1774. 
Sir: Agreeable to the request of the Committee of Correspond- 
ence for the city of Philadelphia, signified to some of the Inluibi- 
tauts here, by your letter, we have this evening had a Meeting of 
the Inhabitants of this Town, (at which a great number attended) 
at the Court House, and unanimously gave their assent to the Re- 
solves or Agreement inclosed. As taking the sentiments of the 
county could not be so exjieditiously done by having a general Meet- 
ing of the Inhabitants, we tliought best to give you those of the 
Town, and have the i)leasure now to assure you that the Inhabi- 
tants of the county in general begin to entertain similar opinions 
within as to this matter, and will no doubt heartily concur in them 
at a Meeting which we shall endeavor as soon as possible to have 
with them. We hope you will give us intelligence of any matters 
worthy of notice, and be assured we shall do everything in our 
power to promote tlie General Interest. 

We are, &c.,

" PniLADELPiiiA, June, 1774. 

"At a very large and respectable meeting of the freeholders and 
freemen of the city and county of Philadelphia, on Saturday, June 
IS, 1774, Thomas Willing and John Dickinson, Esqrs., chairmen. 

" I. liesolved, That the act of Parliament for shuttting up the 
port of Boston is unconstitutional, oppressive to the inhabitants of 
that town, dangerous to the liberties of the British colonies, and 
that, therefore, we consider our brethern at Boston as sufiering in 
the common cause of America. 

"II. That a Congress of Deputies from the several Colonies in 
North America is the most probable and proper mode of })rocuring 
relief for our suffering brethren, obtaining redress of American 
grievances, securing our riglits and liberties, and rel'stablishing 
peace and harmony between Great Britain and these Colonies on a 
constitutional foundation. 

"III. That a large and respectable committee be immediately 
appointed for the city and county of Philadelphia, to correspond 
with the sister Colonies and with the several counties in this Pro- 
vince, in order that all may unite in promoting and endeavoring to 
attain the great and valuable ends mentioned in the foregoing re- 
solution. 

" IV. That the committee nominated by this meeting shall con- 
sult together, and on mature deliberation determine what is the 
most proi)er mode of collecting the sense of this Province, and ap- 
pointing deputies for the same to attend a general Congress; and, 
having determined thereupon, shall take such measures, as by them 
shall be judged most expedient, for procuring this Province to be 
represented at the said Congress, in the best manner that can be 
devised for promoting the public welfare. 

" V. That the committee be instructed immediately to set on 
foot a subscription for tlie relief of such poor inhabitants of the 
town of Boston as may be deprived of the means of subsistence by 
the operation of the act of Parliament commonly styled the Boston 



278 ASSOCIATED BATTALIONS 

Port Bill— the money arising from such subscriptions to be laid out 
as the committee shall tliink will best answer the ends proposed. 

'•VI. That the committee consist of forty-three persons, viz: 
John Dickinson, Edward Pennington, John Nixon, Tliomas Will, 
ing, George Clymer, Samuel Howell, Joseph Reed, John Roberts, 
(miller,) Thomas Wharton, junr., Charles Thompson, Jacob Barge, 
Thomas Barclay, William Rush, Robert Smith, (carpenter,) TJiomas 
Fitzsimmons, George Roberts, Samuel Ervin, Thomas Mifflin, Joim 
Cox, George Gray, Robert Morris, Samuel Miles, John M. Nesbit, 
Peter Chevalier, Wm. Moulder, Joseph Moulder, Anthony Morris, 
junr., John Allen, Jeremiali Warder, junr.. Rev. Dr. William 
Smith, Paul Engle, Thomas Penrose, James Mease, Benjamin Mar- 
shall, Reuben Haines, John Bayard, Jonathan B. Smith, Thomas 
Whaaton, Isaac Howell, Michael Hillegas, Adam Hubley, George 
Schlosser, and Christoplier Ludwick. And after tlie first reading 
of the propositions that had been prepared for the meeting on Sat- 
urday, the 18th inst., and before they were put up separately, the 
Rev. Dr. Smith made the following short address, which is published 
at the desire of many : 

'' Gentlemen : The occasion of this meeting has been fully ex- 
plained to you, and sundry propositions read, which are now to be 
separately offered for your approbation or disapprobation. But be- 
fore you proceed to this business, it has been thought proper to 
submit a few things to your good judgment, with respect to the or- 
der and decorum necessai-y to be observed in the discussion of every 
question. ' 

" It need not be repeated to you that matters of the highest con- 
sequence to the happiness of this Province, nay of all British 
America, depend upon your deliberations this day — perhaps noth- 
ing less than whether the breach with the country from which we 
descended shall be irreparably widened, or whether ways and means 
upon constitutional grounds may not yet be devised for closing that 
breach, and restoring that harmony from whicl), in our better days, 
Great Britain and her colonies derived mutual strengtii and glory, 
and were exalted into an importance that, both in peace and war, 
made them the envy and terror of the neighboring nations. 

" While subjects sucli as these are agitated before us, everytlnmi 
that may inflame and mislead the passions should be cast far be- 
hind us. A cause of such importance and magnitude as that now 
under our deliberation, is not to be conducted to its true issue by 
any heated or liasty resolves, nor by any bitterness and animosities 
among ourselves, nor even perhaps by too severe a recapitulation 
of past grievances, but require the temperate and enlightened zeal 
of the patriot, the prudence and experience of tlie aged, the strength 
of mind and vigor of those who are in tlieir prime of life, and, in 
short, the united wisdom and efforts of all, both high and low, 



AXD MILITIA OF THE REVOLUTION. 279 

joining hand in hand, and setting foot to foot, upon the firm ground 
of reason and tlie constitution. 

" Whenever party distinctions begin to operate, we shall give 
cause of triumph to those who may be watchful as well as power- 
ful to abridge us of our native right. There ought to be no party, 
no contention here, but who shall be firmest and foremost in the 
common cause of America. Every man's sentiments should be 
freely heard, and without prejudice. While we contend for liberty 
with others, let us not refuse liberty to each other. 

" Whatever t'oie is known to be now passed, upon full delibera- 
tion, and by the unanimous voice of this great city and county^ 
will not only be respected through all America, but will have "such 
a weight as the proudest Minister in England may have reason to 
respect. But if it is known to be a divided vote, or adopted hastily 
on some angry day, it will only be injurious to our own cause. 

" What I have in charge to request of you is this — tiiat if, on any 
point, W'e should have a difference of sentiments, every person may 
be allowed to speak his mind freely, and to conclude what lie has to 
offer, without any such outward marks of approbation or disappro- 
bation as clapjpimj or hissing, and that if a division sliould be nec- 
essary, (which it is hoped may not be the case this day.) sucli divi- 
sion may be made in the manner desired by the chairman, with all 
possible order and decorum. 

" Tlie following is a copy of the circular letter sent by tlie com- 
mittee for this city and county [Philadelphia] to the different coun- 
ties in this Province : 

" PiiiLADELPniA, June 2S, 117 J^. 

" Gentlemen : The Committee of Correspondence for this city 
and county beg leave to enclose you copies of the resolves, passed 
at a very large and respectable meeting of the freeholders and free- 
men in the State House Square, on Saturday, the 18th inst. By 
the 4th of those resolves, you will observe that it was left for the 
committee " To determine on the most proper mode of collecting 
the sense of this Province in the present critical situation of our 
affairs, and appointhig Deputies to attend the proposed Congress.'''' 
In pursuance of this trust, we have, upon tlie maturest delibera- 
tion, determined upon the mode contained in the two follovving pro- 
positions, which we hope may meet with the approbation and con- 
currence of your respectable county, viz: 

" 1. Tiiat the Speaker of the Honorable House of Reiireseiitatives 
be desired to write to the several members of Assembly in this Pro- 
vince, requesting them to meet in tiiis city as soon as i)ossible, but 
not later than the 1st of August next, to take into their considera- 
tion our very alarming situation. 

" 2. Tluit letters be written to proper persons in eacli county, re- 
commending it to them to get committees appointed for their re- 



280 ASSOCIATED BATTALIONS 

spective counties, and that tlie said comaiittees, or sucli number of 
them as may be thought proper, may meet in Philadelphia at. the 
time the Kepresentatives are convened, in order to consult and ad. 
vise on the most expedient mode of appointing Deputies for the 
general Congress, and to give tlieir weight to such as may be ap- 
pointed. 

"The Speaker of the Assembly, in a very obliging and ready 
manner, had agreed to comply with the request in the former of 
these propositions, but we are now informed that, on account of 
the Indian disturbances, the Governor has found it necessary to call 
the Assembly to meet in their legislative capacity on Monday, July 
18, being about the same time the Speaker would probably have in- 
vited them to a conference or convention in their private capacity. 

" "What we have therefore to request is, that if you approve of the 
mode expressed in the second proposition, the whole or part of the 
committee appointed, or to be appointed for your county, will meet 
committees from the other counties at Philadelphia, on Friday, the 
15th of July, in order to assist in framing instructions, and prepar- 
ing sucli matters as may be proper to recommend to our Represen- 
tatives at their meeting the Monday following. 

" We trust no apology is necessary for the trouble we propose 
giving your committee, of attending at Philadelphia ; as we are 
persuaded, you are fully convinced of the necessity of the closest 
union among ourselves both in sentiment and action ; nor can such 
union be obtained so well by any other method as by a meeting of 
the county committees of each particular Pi'ovince, in one place, 
preparatory to the general Congress. 

" We would not offer such an affront to the well known public 
spirit of Pennsylvanians as to question your zeal on the present oc- 
casion. Our very existence in the rank of freemen, and the se- 
curity of all that ought to be dear to us evidently depend upon our 
conducting this great cause to its proper issue by firmness, wisdom, 
and unanimity. We cannot, therefore, doubt your ready concur- 
rence in every measure that may be conducive to the public good ; 
and it is with pleasure we can assure you that all the Colonies, from 
S. Carolina to X. Hampshire, seem animated witli one spirit in the 
common cause, and consider this as the proper crisis for having our 
differences with tiie Mother Country brought to some certain issue, 
and our liberties fixt upon a permanent foundation. This desirable 
end can only be accomplished by a free communion of sentiments 
and a sincere fervent regard to the interests of our common coun- 
try. We beg to be favoui-ed with an answer to this and whether 
the committee for your county can attend at Phila., at the time 
proposed. 

Signed by order of the committee, 

Thomas Willing, C/jcimnan."

Lancasteu, September D, 1774. 
At a meeting of the committee of the county of Lancaster, at 
Lancaster, ou tiie 9tli September, 1774, Edward Sliippen, Esq., in 

the chair. 

The subscriptions received for the relief of the distresses of the 
poor inliabitants of the town of Boston, were laid before the com- 
mittee, and it appeareth that tlie sum of one hundred and fifty- 
three pounds, fifteen shillings and two pence has been collected in 
the borough of Lancaster for the purposes aforesaid, that it being 
put to the vote whether the said sum sliould not be immediately 
remitted to Piiiladelphia to Mr. John Nixon, the Treasurer of the 
city and county of Philadelphia, to be laid out in such manner as 
the committee for tlie said city and county should think proper for 
the relief of our distressed poor brethren of the town of Boston, the 
same was carried in the affirmative, and Edward Shippen, Esq., the 
chairman, is requested to forward the said sum of money forthwith 
to Philadelphia for the purpose aforesaid. 

At tliis time no proper account could possibly be had of the sub- 
scription papers of the several townships in this county. 

Tlie following letter was omitted entering in its proper place, and 
is as follows, to wit : 

Philadelphia, June CD, 1774. 

" Gentlemen : Enclosed you will receive a printed circular let- 
ter signed by the chairman of our committee, and the resolves there- 
in referred to, with some otiier printed papers. The use to be made 
of them, your own prudence and good judgment will suggest; we 
would be glad to hear as soon as possible from the committee for 
your county, and are 

Your most humble servant, 

William Sshth. 
Your assured friend, 

Isaac Howell." 

To Edward Shippen and George Iloss, Esq'rs., who are requested 
to communicate the enclosed papers to the other gentlemen of the 
committee. 

Those gentlemen named and appointed at the meeting of the 9tli 
of July last, attended the provincial convention at Philadelphia, on 
Monday, the 15th then next. And tlie proceedings, together with 
the resolves of that provincial committee, hath been inserted in the 
public papers. 

Lancaster, August 11, 1774. 
At a meeting of the committee August 11th, they were informed 
that Joshua and Robert Lockharts, of this borough, shopkeepers, 
had brought to this town a quantity of tea, that have paid duty 



282 ASSOCIATED BATTALIONS 

under the late act of Parliament. A note was therefore sent to 
them by the committee requiring tlieir immediate attendance. In 
consequence tliereof, one of tlie partners called on the committee, 
but denied their liaving received any tea, but as this account by no 
means appeared satisfactory from several matters which escaped 
the partner attending, the committee did inspect their sliop, and 
with some dilhculty learned of a cliest of Bohea tea, weiglit 349, 
neat weight, which they had bought from a certain merchant in Phi- 
ladelpliia. Tl)e committee, taking an account of all the marks of 
the case in whicli it was packed, removed tlie tea, and wrote to the 
committee of Philadelphia, who examined the matter, and it ap- 
peareth that this tea never had paid any duty, but was part of a 
seizure made by tlie Custom House and was afterwards purchased 
at a public sale by the original owner of it, as by a letter from the 
committee of Pliiladelphia, dated August 25lh, wrote and signed 
by the Honorable Thomas Willing, the chairman, directed to this 
committee, appears ; upon which, the said teas were returned again, 
and the said Lockharts were acquitted. 

The Continental Congress iield at Philadelphia, the fifth of Sep- 
tember, 1774, continued to the 25th of October; the votes and pro- 
ceading of which have since been published in the public papers, 
apd printed also by a pamphlet containing the bill of rights, list of 
grievances, occasional resolves, the association, an address to the 
people of Great Britain, a memorial to the inhabitants of tlie British 
American Colonies, and petition to the King.

Christian Voght, Sebastian Graff, Adam Reigart, Casper Sliaffner, 
"William Atlee, Peter Grubb, and Eberhart Michael, Edward Ship- 
pen, Esq., in the chair. 

Several of the reputable inhabitants of this borough of Lancaster, 

having mentioned their dislike to Mr. Francis , having 

opened a dancing school in this borough, (at the present time) and 
that in tlieir opinion the same was contrary to the eighth article of 
the Association of the Continental Congress, and requesting a meet- 
ing of this committee and their sentiments on the occasion. Upon 
consideration of the matter, it is the opinion of this committee that 

the said 'Mv. Francis , opening and keeping a dancing school 

ill the said borough, comes within tlie meaning of the eighth article 
of the Association of the Continental Congress, and that the same 
ought, at the present time, during the uniiappy dispute with the 
mother country, to be discontinued. And Mr. Francis , be- 
ing sent for, waited upon tlie committee, and being informed of 
the sentiments of this committee, agreed and promised to break up 
and discontinue his said school. 

Signed by tl;e members above named. 

A letter received from the Committee of Correspondence of the

lowing resolves, passed this day with great unanimity, viz : 



AND MILITIA OF THE REYOLUTIOX. 287 

" That this committee think it absolutely necessary that the com- 
mittees of the counties of tiiis Province, or such deputies as they 
may appoint for this purpose, be requested to meet together in pro- 
vincial convention as soon as convenient. 

"That it be recommended to tlie county committees to meet in 
said convention, on Monday, the 23d day of January next, in the 
city of Pliiladelphia. 

*' From a view of tiie present situation of public affairs, the com- 
mittee liave been induced to propose tliis convention tliat tlie sense 
of the Province may be obtained ; and tliat tlie measures to be 
taken thereupon, may be the result of tlie united wisdom of the 
Colony. 

" Tiie obvious necessity of giving an immediate consideration to 
many matters of tlie greatest importance to the general welfare, 
will, we hope, sufficiently apologize to you for naming so early a 
day as the 23d of January.

The following letter from the Committee of Correspondence for

" Reading, 2d January, 1775. 

" This day the committee of this county met here. A letter from 
the Committee of Correspondence of the City and Liberties of Phil- 
adelphia, (meaning the same above,) was laid before them propos- 
ing a provincial convention, to be held at Philadelphia, the 22d in- 
stant. The letter being duly considered, the committee unani- 
mously agreed to the proposed convention, and appointed Edward 
Biddle, Jonathan Potts, Mark Bird, Christopher Shultz, John Pat- 
ton, Sebastian Levan, and Balzer Gehr a committee to attend the 
said convention, in behalf of this county. The committee then 
proceeded to choose a Committee of Correspondence, and Edward

" Reading, 5th January, 1775. 
" Gentlemen : Enclosed is an extract from "the proceedings of 
the committee of this county, by which you will see that deputies 
are appointed to attend the proposed provincial convention. 

" When we consider that our disputes are drawing fast to a crigjs, 
and that the most cordial unanimity is absolutely necessary for our 
preservation, we cannot doubt but that your respectable committee 
will without hesitation appoint deputies to attend the provincial 
Congress. Tlie neglect of any one county may have the most fatal 
consequences. And we well know the pleasure it would give our 
enemies to see even the appearance of a disunion at this very im-

of Correspondence of Berks county, were then read ; and it being 
put to vote, whether this committee would appoint deputies to meet

Mr. Hamilton having attended, and it appearing by the oath of 
John Taylor, the clerk, that the tea was sold in Mr. Hamilton's ab- 
sence at Philadelphia, contrary to the express orders given by him 
in his store since tlie first of March instant; and Mr. Hamilton, 
upon knowing of the said tea being sold, immediately disapproved 
of the sale thereof. And Mr. Hamilton, himself, upon oath, de- 
claring tiiat ever since the first of Marcli, instant, liis orders in the 
store liave been to his clerk that they should sell no tea whatsoever, 
and that the said sale was in his absence, and that he disapproves 
thereof. Upon consideration of the premises by the committee, it 
is their unanimous opinion that Mr. Hamilton stands acquitted of 
the charge against him, and that lie hath not counteracted the As- 
sociation of the Continental Congress. 

" I, Charles Hamilton, of the borough of Lancaster, shopkeeper, 
do hereby declare and assert, that I utterly disapprove of the sales 
of any tea in my store since the first day of Marcli, instant, and it 
is and always hath been my fixed intention and determination to 
adhere inviolably to the Association of tlie American Continental 
Congress, being fully convinced that the measures proposed there- 
by are the only probable modes of rescuing America from British 
Parliamentary despotism. Witness my liand, the tliirtieth day of

midable fleet and army are preparing to invade the Colonies or some

the free born sons of America to a state of vassalage, and have flat^ 
tered themselves from our unacquaintance with military discipline- 
that we should become an easy prey to them, or tamely submit, and 
bend our necks to the yoke prepared for us. 

We do most solemnly agree and associate, under the deepest sense 
of our duty to God, our country, ourselves, and posterity, to defend 
and protect the religious and civil rights of this and our sister 
Colonies, with our lives and our fortunes, to the utmost of our 
abilities, against any power whatsoever, that shall attempt to de- 
prive us of them. 

And the better to enable us so to do, we will use our utmost dili- 
gence to acquaint ourselves with military discipline and the art of 
war. 

We do further agree to divide ourselves into companies, not ex- 
ceeding one hundred men each, so as to make it most convenient 
to our situations and settlements, and to elect and chuse such per- 
sons as the majority of each company shall think proper for officers, 
viz: for each company, a captain, two lieutenants, and one en- 
sign, who shall liave the power of appointing the other officers un. 
der them necessary for the companies.

AND MILITIA OF THE REVOLUTION. 297 

their reasons to this committee, why they have not set about malc- 
ing the arms directed by the iionorable House of Assembly to be 
made in the county of Lancaster, agreeable to the application of 
the commissioners and assessors of the said county, the same was

A petition signed by Henry Zericher being presented to the com- 
mittee, upon inquiry into the facts therein contained, it is ordered 
by this committee, (three townships dissenting,) that the said Henry

public magazine, for the purposes expressed in the petition, he pay- 
ing for the same into the county treasury at the rate of four shill- 
ings per pound. 

The sub-committee appointed to essay the draft of an answer to 
the letter of the Committee of Safety respecting the provincial 
muskets, do now report to this committee, the draft of the answer 
which they had prepared, in these words, to wit : 

Lancaster, November 0th,l775. 

Gentlemen : Your letter of the 7th day of October last, directed 
to the committee of Lancaster county respecting the provincial 
muskets in the hands of the military associators and others in this 
county, has been laid before this committee and taken into con- 
sideration. 

We find that the gentlemen who were the Committee of Corres- 
pondence, appointed by the late county committee, had upon the 
receipt of your letter, published and dispersed hand-bills through- 
out the county requiring the persons possessed of such muskets to 
bring them in at this time. As none are brought in, we beg leave 
to suggest to you some facts, relative to those arms, and wait your 
further directions. 

After the trooi)s raised by the Province in the late war were dis- 
banded, a number of muskets and military accoutrements were 
lodged at a Mr. Carson's in Paxtang, where they remained without 
any notice or care being taken of them, until the unhappy disputes 
between Great Britain and the Colonies rendered it indispensably 
necessary for our safety to associate and arm in defence of our 
rights. The then committee of this county, upon hearing of those 
arms, requested some of their members to examine and send them 
down, intending an application to the Assembly to have them re- 
paired at tlie public expense, and put into the hands of such asso- 
ciators as were unable to furnish tliemselves, and who were to give 
receipts for them to be returned, if not lost in actual service. At 
this time arms were sought for with great assiduity by every one who 
wished to be instructed in the military discipline. The inhabitants 
of Cumberland county, knowing also of tlie provincial muskets, 



298 ASSOCIATED BATTALIONS 

were beforehand witli us, and having the first choice, took between 
sixty and seventy of the best of them (for which Mr. Carson has a 
receipt) leaving a parcel of rubbish which were sent to this town, 
consisting of barrels mostly without locks and stocks, and all of 
them so covered with rust that they were thought almost unfit for 
use, and scarcely worth repairing. Many of them were loaded and 
had probably been so for many years. Some of the poor associators 
here took the barrels, and with much labor had tliera cleaned. By 
the help of some old locks which about this time were found in a 
garret in this town (without an owner) and were distributed 
amongst them, they had them put into such repair as to serve them 
to exercise with. These persons have been at a considerable ex- 
pense in putting them in the order they now are ; and if tliey are 
deprived of them, are not able to purchase others. There are a few 
indeed of the best of the firelocks which we think could safely be 
trusted to for real service. To take the arms from tlie poor people 
under such circumstances would greatly damp tlieir martial spirit. 

AVe conceive it our duty to mention these things to the Commit- 
tee of Safety. If tliat honorable Board, nevertheless, shall be of 
opinion that such firelocks will be of use and will direct in what 
manner the people who have been at expense in repairing them are 
to be reimbursed, we shall cheerfully exert ourselves to the utmost 
of our power in calling them in, and forwarding them to Philadel- 
phia. 

Tills, gentlemen, is the first opportunity we have had of answer- 
ing your letter relative to tiie arms. Give us leave to assure you, 
it will afford us great pleasure to be instrumental in any degree to 
the safety of tlie city of Philadelphia. We feel very sensibly the 
situation of your citizens ; we deem ourselves most strongly bound 
to give every assistance in our power to repel any attack which 
may be attempted against you, and humbly trust we shall not be 
deficient in the day of danger. 

Your letter of the 19tli October, came to our hands. According 
to your desire a proper guard from hence conducted Dr. Kearsley 
to York, and took a receii)t for liis safe delivery to tlie committee 
there. J. Brooks remains confined in our gaol. A sub-committee 
of twelve gentlemen residing in and near this town, has been ap- 
pointed to see that your sentence and resolves respecting Brooks be 
carried into execution, and no person is jiermitted to visit him but 
in the i)resence of one or more of those gentlemen. 

By order of the committee of Lancaster county. 

The foregoing answer read at the table, was unanimously ap- 
proved of, and it is ordered that the same be transmitted to the 
Committee of Safety by the first conveyance. 

Adjourned until to-morrow, eight o'clock.

bayonets required of this county, by the honorable House of As- 
sembly, within two weeks from such application agreeable to the 
patterns, aft the Pliiladelphia prices, such gun-smiths shall have 
their names inserted in the minutes of this committee as enemies 
to their country, and published as such, and the tools of the said 
gun-smiths so refusing shall be taken from them, and moreover the 
said gun-smiths shall not be permitted to carry on their trades un- 
til they shall engage to go to work as aforesaid, nor shall leave their 
respective places of residence until the arms are completed. 

And it is further resolved, That the Committee of Correspondence 
and Observation do take especial care that their resolves be car- 
ried into execution. 

Christian Isch and Peter Reigart appeared in committee, and 
agreed to set to work on Monday, tlie twentieth day of November 
instant, and make muskets and bayonets for this county, (part of 
the number required from this county, by the honorable House of 
Assembly,) at the Philadelphia prices; and that they will confine 
themselves to that work entirely from that time to the first day of 
March next, and furnish as many as they can i)0ssibly complete in 
the time, and deliver the same to the commissioners of tlie county 
or this committee. 

Michael "Withers appeared in committee, and agreed to set to 
work as soon as he hatli comj)leted a few guns wliich lie hath now 
in hand, and make muskets and bayonets for this county, (part of 
the number required from this county by the honorable House of 
Assembly,) at the Philadelphia prices ; that he will confine himself

[Capt. John Reed, the commander of the following company dur- 
ing the Jersey campaign of 1776-77, was the son of James Reed, 
who located near the mouth of Powell's creek, Lancaster, now Dau- 
phin county, probably as early as 1728. On maps prior to 1800, the 
location is marked "Reed's." John Reed had been a ranger on 
the frontiers during the French and Indian wars, and when the 
war of the Revolution came he was ready for the conflict. He or- 
ganized the company of associators which is herewith given, and 
was in service until after the battles in and around Piiiladelphia.

Sir : Agreeable to the enclosed resolve of Congress, and with the 
Advice of the Board of War, I have determined that the Counties 
of Phihidelphia, Bucks, Cumberland, Berlss, and Xt)rthami)ton, 
send their Proportion of Militia to Bristol, to form a Cam[) at or 
near tiiat Borougii Tlie Counties of Chester, Lancaster, and 
Yorlc, to form a (Jamp at or near Chester. 

Your County is tofurnisli six hundred Men, to marcli immediately 
to Chester with as many arms and accoutrements as can be iiad in 
the County. If tlie first Class does not amount to that number, tlie 
second Class also are to marcli. 

You are to procure by purcliase or otlierwise a Blanket for each 
Man (wiiicli is to remain tlie property of tlie State,) money will be 
sent you for this purpose. If tiiey cannot be i)rocured liy purchase 
they must lie impressed l)y their value paid, this is to be done in a 
way that will give tiie least offence. 

You are to exert yourself to the utmost to Comply with this 
Order with all i)ossible expedition, as the Enemy are preparing to 
make an immediate attack on this State. 

I have the honor to be, with great respect, Your most Obedient, 
humble Servant,

Dear Sii: : Yours I rec'' last Night but cannot possibly comply 
with your Request, as we have too much Divisions in this Depart- 
ment, the five Sub-divisions laid off in Paxton met tolerably well 
except the Germans, wiio seem chiefly all to stand aloof, tliree of 
the Companies chose their officers very well, and the other two ne- 
glected. There was no disputes about pay, but one of them seemed 
all desirous of being officers, and the other all Privates; declining 
any commissions tliat were offered. I have promised my attend- 
ance in one of tliese Companies to-Morrow ; as to the Dispute about 
pay, I tliink if they would have the least Consideration, miglit be 
soon removed, it miglit answer well enough to draw out a few men 
when there was no compulsion nor Law to put every Man on an 
equnl Ballance in expense of the War, but as the Law is regulated 
at present, except the whole State in general, or at least the whole 
Battalion woidd condescend to that Plan, it would be in vain for 
one Company to i)retend to it, except they would think lliemselves 
wiser law-makers thnn the Choice of the State, because each Com- 
pany or Draught is made out of the whole Battalion, and if they 
should deviate from the Laws of the State, they would be a Deri- 
sion to all the rest. You can Inform them that if they don't choose 
for themselves, the Lieutenants will be under the Necessity of 
choosing for them. And you will be good enough to consider and 
inform yourself what Men will be most likely to suit, if that should 
be the Case, that you can recommend them to us. I had a letter 
from Col. (Jalbraith last Night Desiring I would give you Word to 
bring the Rei)ort of youi Battalion, Companies, Riink, nnd Draughts 
to liiin at Lancaster next Wednesday, and draw for Rank with the 
other Colonels.

giency of affairs may require, but at the same time they (the Sol- 
diers) are to take care that no expense is accrued to the State for 
their mentainance during such Intervals, their hands must clear 
their teetii. As the President has put it in my power to continue 
the guard at my i)leasure, I do think proper to continue the Substi- 
tutes until tiie civil authority has no further demand for us; it's not 
the business of this, that, or the other Class, how tiie present Class, 
serves their tower of duty or yet the peoi)le for whom they are Im-

Sir : In Pursuance of Orders from Col". Galbraitli I must request 
you will without Loss of Time call out the 2.\ 3' & 4"' Classes of 
your Batt°. to march to Suubury against the Indians, to meet at 
Garber's Mills next Tuesday where they will besupplied with Arms 
& Ammunition ; any who have Arms of their own let them bring 
them lest there may be a Scarcity, & let every Man bring a Side if 
possible as the Salvation of the Crops in Northumberland would 
pay the Expence of the whole Expedition. Let the Delinquents of 
the first Class & every other Person know that if they turn out on 
tliis Important Occasion «& perform a Tour it will be allowed as 
their Tour let their class be what it will. 

I suppose you will Rendezvous in your Batt". on ^londny you'll 
be good enough to send an Express to Col. Ort & Justice Green to 
attend & give the people an Opportunity of an Api)eal, as I must 
attend in Paxton. I'm thus far on my Return from Pliilad''. & ex- 
pect tlie Congress will fully consider the Distresses of our Frontiers. 
I cou'd give you Details of News as long as my Arm if Time wou'd 
Admit. Every thing from that Quarter bears the most favorable 
Aspect, the French Fleet arrived off the Delaware Capes last Friday 
with the French Ambassador on board, tiie Reception of whom, iS: 
the reading of so many Packets & Expresses as came to hand took 
up the Congress Time so tliat it was not in their Power to go into 
tliat business before Tuesday. Tlie Fleet took three English Battle 
Sliips on their Arrival in Chesai)eak Bay & our Capes & proceeded 
Immediately to New York after the Enemy. You may be asur'd 
tliere's warm work there before this Time. 

I am Sir y^ hum' Serv',

tain number of men can be rai.sed who are called Rangers. I have

of men wanted. A:, as my orders are express to Call Class after Class 
until tiie number of three liund'' men are Comi)leet, therefore the 
Eighth class of your Batt". is hereby ordered to randisvouse at John

rected by law, at the Same time the marching troops of the Seventh 
Class are to be forthwith marched to Coxestown, tliere to be formed 
into Companies from the Several Batt"'. I do not see any other 
method that can be fallen on from the Smallness of their numhers. 
I once more exort theOtlicers to a faithfull discharge of their duty, 
as they may depend no farther lenity will be Shown them for ne-

THE GENERAL COMMITTEE TO THE COMMITTEE 
OF LANCASTER. 



rinLAD% 1 Ocioh\ 1775. 
Gentlemen: We are informed that there are some of the Pro- 
vincial Muskets in the hands of tlie Military Associators and others 
of your County. Tlie present gloomy prospect of Americans affairs 
and the daily expectation there is of some Ships of War being sent 
to awe & intimidate if not to destroy this City (as we are informed) 
makes it consistent witli our duty to take every method in our 
power to render ineffectual all their hostile and tyranical purposes — 
nor have we neglected or left any probable means nnessayd to put 
this City & Province in a compleat posture of defence. But un- 
happily we find that when we have built & equipped a number of 
Boats of AVar and nearly manned them with their compliment of 
men we are destitute of small arms to furnish them with, nor is it 
in our power to procure any either by purchase or otherwise. This 
lays us under tiie necessity of applying to you with a request that 
you will call in the said Provincial arms and send tliem to this 
Committee Avith all tlie Expedition A: dispatch in your power. 
Your performance of tliis request will manifest your attaciiment 
to the generel interests of tlie Colony, give confidence to those tiiat 
are most immediately exposed to the insults of the enemy and en- 
courage a vigourous opposition. Any expences that shall accrue by 
the performance of this desire will be defrayed by this Committee. 

By order of the Committee of Safety.

Under the same guard we have sent DoC John Kearsley (Con-

THE LANCASTER COMMITTEE TO ROBERT MORRIS. 



Lancaster, ^i'ovemher 9, 1775. 

Gentlemen : Your Letter of the 7"' Day of October last directed 
to the Committee of Lancaster County, respecting the Provincial 
Muskets in tlie Hands of the military Associators & others in this 
County, lias been laid before this Committee, and taken into con- 
sideration. 

We hnd that the Gentlemen who were the Committee of Corre- 
si)ondence, appointed by the late County Committee, had upon the 
Receipt of your Letter, publisiieil & disi)ursed Hand Lills tlirough- 
out the County recpiiring tlie Persons possessed of such Muskets 
to bring them in at this Time. As none are brought in, AVe beg 
leave to mention to you some Facts relative to those arms, ct wait 
your further Directions. 

After the Troops raised by tliis Province in the late War were 
disbanded, a number of Muskets & military Accoutrements were 
lodged at a Mr. Carson's in Paxtang, wiiere they remained witliout 
any Notice or care being taken of tliem, until the unliappy Dis- 
putes between Great Britain & the Colonies rendered it indispen- 
sibly necessary for our Safety to associate & arm in Defence of our 
Rights. The then Committee of this County upon hearing of those 
arms, requested some of their members to examine tiieni & send 
them down, intending an application to tlie Assembly to have them 
repaired at tlie public expense, and jnit into the Hands of such As- 
sociators as were unable to furnish themselves, and wlio were to 
give Receipts for them to be returned, if not lost in actual Service. 
At this Time, arms were sought for with great assiduity liy every 
one wiio wished to be instructed in tlie Military Discipline The 
Inhabitants of Cumberland County knowing also of the I'rovincial 
Muskets, were beforehand with us, and having the first clioice took 
between sixty and seventy of the best of them, ifor which Mr. Car- 
son has a Receipt) leaving a Parcel of Rubbish which were sent to 
this Town, consisting of Barrels mostly without Locks & Stocks, 
and all of them so covered with Rust, that they were thought 
almost unfit for use, & scarcely worth repairing. Many of them 
were loaded, and had probably been so for many years. Some of 
the poorer Associators here took the Barrels, ifc with much Labour 
had them cleansed. By the Help of some old Locks, which about 
this Time were found in a Garret in this Town (without an owner) 
and were distributed amongst them, they had them i)ut in such 
Repair as to serve them to exercise with. Tiiese Persons liave been 
at a considerable expence in ])utting the arms in the order they now 
are, and if they are deprived of them are not able to purchase others. 



506 ASSOCIATED BATTALIONS 

There are few indeed of the best of the Firelocks, which we think 
could safely be trusted to for real Service. 

We conceive it our Duty to mention these things to the Com- 
mittee of Safety. To take the arms from the poor People, under 
such circumstances would greatly damp their martial spirit. If 
that II(*nourable Board nevertheless shall be of opinion that such 
Firelocks will be of use, and will direct in what manner the People 
who have been at tlie expence of repairing them, are to be reim- 
bursed, we shall cheerfully exert ourselves to the utmost of our 
Power in calling tliem in and forwarding them to Pliilad'. 

This, Gentlemen, is the first opportunity we have had of answer- 
ing your Letter relative to the arms. Give us leave to assure you 
it will afford us great Pleasure to be instrumental in any Degree to 
the Safety of the City of Philadelphia. AVe feel very sensibly the 
Situation of your Citizens. We deem ourselves most strongly bound 
to give every assistance in our Power to repel any attack which 
may be attempted against you, and humbly trust we shall not be 
deficient in the Day of Danger. 

Your Letter (tf tlie 19"' October came to our Hands. According 
to your Desire a proper Guard from hence conducted Dr. Kearsley 
to York, and took a Receipt for his safe Delivery to the Committee 
there. I. Brooks remains confined in our Goal. A Sub-Committee 
of twelve (ientlemen residing in & near this Town has been ap- 
pointed to see tliat your Sentence & Resolves respecting lirooks be 
carried into execution, and no Person whatever is permitted to 
visit him, but in the Presence of one or more of those Gentlemen. 

By order of the Committee of Lancaster County. 
To the Committee of Safety. J. YEATES, Chairman. 



THE GENERAL COMMITTEE TO THE LANCASTER 
COMMITTEE. 



A'or. 77, J77o. 

Gentlemen : We have considered your respectful answer to 
our application for the publick arms in the County of Lancaster 
and are fully satisfied with the reasons you assign for retaining 
them for the use of the poor Associators in said County, and 
have only to acknowledge your zeal in the i)ublic Cause and to 
desire you will send to us the names of the persons in whose hands 
the arms are left, that it may be known where to ai)]>ly for them on 
any emergency and that publick property may be taken care of. 

We also acknowledge your care in carrying our Resolves respect- 
ing Kear.sley & Brooks into execution & we are Gentlemen.

Lancaster, December the 9"", 1775. 

Gentlemen : After the repeated intercessions of 1. Brooks, the 
Prisoner sent to tliis Goal bj' the Committee of Safety, that he 
might be permitted to write to some Friend in England, relative to 
his ])rivate affairs there, and that lie might be indulged witli inclos- 
ing that I^etter to Coll". Roberdeau. The Committee here iiave ven- 
tured to indulge him, and forward the inclosed Letters, (wliich have 
been wrote by him in tlie presence of some Members of tliis Commit- 
tee)open, for the perusal A: Consideration of the Committee of Safety, 
who will either suppress or forward them as they shall think proper. 

This Committee have gratified him tlius far (altho' it seems con- 
trary to the directions of tiie Committee of Safety) in hopes that he 
might have made some interesting discoveries. If any further 
favours of this kind are not to be granted to him, the Committee 
here will in future refuse him, and if in this instance they liave 
done amiss hope to be excused. Great care hatii been taken that 
no Pen, Ink or Paper hath been used by him except that made use 
of in writing these Letters, and in every otiier respect the Commit- 
tee may be assured that tlieir directions as to him have been punc- 
tually observed.

"We observe by the Orders to the Ofticers recruiting here for tlie 
Continental Army tluit tliey are lit liberty to take all able bodied 
Men between IG & 50, bouglit Servants excepted. Under these 
orders the Gentlemen recruiting here have inlisted several Appren- 
tices in this Town, and amongst them, some of the Gunsmiths' 
Apprentices. The necessity of keeping our Gunsmitlis busily em- 
ployed in finishing the Arms required to be furnislied by this County 
and tlie assurances we had that many of the Gunsmiths' Appren- 
tices intended to inlist (which upon examination we found to be so) 
induced us to interfere. AVe have prevailed upon Cap'. Ilubley to 
permit the Gunsmiths' Apprentices whom he had inlisted to return 
& work with tiieir Masters & have his promise with that of the 
other Gentlemen recruiting in this Town not to take any more of 
them untill we can receive the opinion of the Congress or the Com- 
mittee of Safety on this subject. Tlie Gunsmiths assure us that if 
their apprentices or Servants who are employed in that Business 
are taken from them, they cannot go on with their work. We have 
them all now busily employed and many of their apprentices are ex- 
ceeding good Workmen. We tlierefore beg the Sentiments of the 
Committee of Safety as to this matter and if an order of Congress 
is thought proper and necessary to prevent the inlistment of these 
Apprentices, request the Committee will i)rocure it & order it to be 
forwarded to us, that we may quiet the Minds of the Gunsmiths, 
who are very uneasy, and would be glad of an excuse to lay by the 
Musket-Work & make Rifles, which are more" profitable for them. 

in procuring these Apprentices to be sent to work with their 
Masters and in preventing the enlistment of others (until the Senti- 
ments of the Congress or Committee of Safety sliall be known to 
us) we h.ave acted with a view to the real Interests of our Country 
& hope the approbation of the Committee of Safety with their di- 
rections how to conduct ourselves in this Matter in future, which 
we shall punctually observe. 

The Soldier prisoners here make frequent applications to be suf- 
fered to inlist with our recruiting Parties. We have constantly dis- 
couraged it, except in the instance of tw^o of them who were in- 
listed by Cap'. AVatson, wherein the inlistments were actually signed 
before we knew of it. These Men we directed to go with Cap'. Wat- 
son on the recruiting Service, & at the same time promised tiieir 
former Cap'. (Kinnear of the 7'' Ileg'. who behaved with a good 
deal of warmth upon the occasion) that we would take the opinion 
of the Congress or the Committee of Safety in this respect. We 
beg leave to submit this matter to the Committee & request tiieir 
Sentiments as to the propriety of such inlistments, according to 
which we sliall govern ourselves. 

By Order of the Committee.

their Resolutions & those of the Congress respecting tlie Officers 
who are Prisoners here. In Consequence of the Authority delegated

We think it our Duty to give you the earliest Inteligence we 
possibly can of this measure, that you may take the projier Steps

respecting the Distribution of the Officers late Prisoners in this

Lieut. William Carlyon Hughes, Lieut. William Duff, Lieut. John 
Andre, Lieut. Joseph Campbell, and Lieut. George Peacocke. We 
have the Pleasure to mention to your Honourable Board, that 
wliatever Pain a Separation from their Men miglit cause to the 
Military Gentlemen, they acquiesced with our Arrangement with 
great Politeness. We i)ermitted one Servant to attend each Officer, 
and engaged at tlie Continental Expense, Teams to carry their Bag- 
gage, and Stage Waggons to transport themselves, to their respec- 
tive Places of Destination. Two of our Board also accompanied 
them to York & Carlisle. The Expenses attending this Matter 
will be transmitted to you, upon our being furnished with the sev- 
eral Amount?. We wrote to the Committee of York and Carlisle 
agreeable to your Desire, previous to the Officers setting out, and 
sent tliem your Letters. Capt". Campbell afterwards produced a 
Letter from the President of the Congress, permitting iiim to go 
Philad-'. so that his llout was altered. Capt". Gordon of the 26'" 
Keg', came to this Town since, and brought with him an Extract 
from your Minutes. He went a few Days ago to York. Ui)on the 
whole. Gentlemen, we have transacted this Business according to 
tlie Best Judgement we could form, from our Experience of the 
Conduct of the Officers ; and we Hatter ourselves our Conduct herein 
Avill ]»rove satisfactory. 

Upon the Receipt of your Letter of the 19'" Instant, we wrote to 
tlie several Colonels in the County, inclosing a Copy of your Letter 
and requesting a Conference with them, and the other Field Officers 
this Day, at the same Time desiring them to inform themselves 
previous to our Meeting, of the Number, Kind, State and Condi- 
tion of the Arms in their respective Battalions. The greater Part 
of those Gentlemen met us this Day in Committee. We warmly 
recommended to them to use tlieir utmost Diligence to procure the 
Articles of Association to be more generally signed, and that they 
would pay a proper Attention to the Arms & Accoutrements of the 
Associators, that every Man might be i)repared & in Readiness to 
march at an Hour's Warning. We are filled with the utmost Con- 
cern, to find, that there is so small a Number of good Arms in the 
Hands of tlie Associators. When the late Resolve of Congresscon- 
cerning the Disarming of Non-Associators is carried into Execu- 
tion by the Honourable House of Assembly, or your reputable 
Board, we doubt not but our spirited Associators will receive some 
supi)ly of Fire-Arms. The fatal Consequence which m:iy arise from 
the Want of arms amongst us are too obvious to be insisted on, par- 
ticularly in thisTown, where we have about four hundred Prisoners, 
and most of them of active, restless and uneasy Spirits. 

We have ordered 250 Weight of Powder immediately to be made 
up into Cartridges & fitted with proper Ball, so as to suit the sev- 
eral Bores of the Muskets and Guns amongst us, and to be lodged 



AXD MILITIA OF THE REYOLUTIOX. -515 

in our Magazine. As tliis Powder and Lead lias been laid in 
altogether at the Expense of the County, we beg Leave to suggest 
to you that should the same be removed from here, we must run to 
you for a fresh Supply, in Order to render the Minds of the Inhabi- 
tants easy. 

We have also, Gentlemen, to answer your Letter of the 23' Inst, 
requiring us to fill up a Blank left for the Names of some Persons 
appointed to pui'chase of all such who do not associate and of such 
Associators, who have spare ^Muskets, as many good Muskets as 
they can procure in this County. We have taken Pains lo inform 
ourselves on tliis (Subject. We cannot lind that tliere any Muskets 
in the Hands of Xon-Associators, and but too few amongst those 
who do associate. Very small indeed is the Number of spare arms 
amongst the Associators, and those have been kindly dealt out to 
other Persons in the different Companies, who are unable to supply 
themselves with any Kind of Firelocks to learn the military Ex- 
ercise. We regret exceedingly, that the unfortunate Want of proper 
arms greatly damps tlie Spirit of our military Associators. 

We ardently wish it pray to obviate tliis powerful objection. We 
are confident, it is not the Meaning of your Board to encourage the 
poor and needy Associators to part witli their Arms, and thereby 
to affect and sensibly injure the military Spirit prevailing amongst 
us : Nor do we apprehend it to be the Intention of your Letter, 
that all Kind of Guns indiscriminately, should be bought up of the 
Non-Associators. That particular Business, we conceive, will be 
carried through as early as possible, either by the House of As- 
sembly or your Body, under the late Resolve of the Honourable 
Congress, in such Manner as will appear most eligible to secure 
those Arms, and at the same Time to preserve the Common Union 
and public Tranquility. 

We are, Gentlemen, respectfully

ing of the Riffies, among tiie smiths in proportion to the Musketts 
tliey make. The constant attention you have paid to tlie jjublick 
service has been an inducement to us to give you this additional 
Troul)le. wliich we doubt not yon will excuse & shall be obliged to 
you to undertake to applying to the Gunsmiths on the subject. 



TO CONGRESS FROM TIIE COMMITTEE OF LANCASTER 

COUNTY. 



In Committee, Lancaster, April nth, I77G. 

Gentlemen: The oflicers of the 7th and SGtIi regiments, with 
those of the Royal Emigrants and Captain CImse of the Navy, 
having been lately removed from hence by order of the Committee 
of Safety, under the direction of the Honorable the Congress, to 
tlie towns of York and Carlisle, in this Province, without having 
it in their power (as we have reason to believe with respect to some 
of them) to discharge tiie moneys due at their lodgings and diet, 
at the house.s where they were lodged and messed in tliis town ; and 
the persons wlio have demands against tlio.se gentlemen for the.se 
articles, having laid their accounts before this Committee, and re- 
quested the assistance of tlie Committee in procuring them their 
moneys, we are obliged to trouble the IIonoral)le the Congress with 
a state of the demands and accounts of these i)ersoiis, and request 
their direction in tlie matter, that these creditors of the otlicers 
(some of whom, especially those whose claims are the greatest, are 
not in the most easy circumstances) may have their demands ad- 
justed and paid. 

Tiie Committee, gentlemen, are interested in this matter. The 
olhcers, when brought to this town by Cajit. Mott, were jilaced by 
him in the houses of Messrs. Mathias Slough and Adam Reigart, 
wliose accounts, we understand, have been transmitted to Congress, 
and are therefore not taken notice of here. After those gentlemen 
had entertained and i)rovided for the oflicers a considerable time, 
they found it very inconvenient and requested their removal. The 
otlicers took great pains to provide themselves with lodgings and 
accommodations, but without success. The gentlemen with whom 
they Avere first placed, at length refused absolutely to jirovide for 
them any Ijnger, and a])])lied to the Committee to relieve them. 
The otlicers in this situation likewise addressed the Committee, 



AXD MILITIA OF THE KEYOLUTIOX. 517 

representing the dillic allies they were subjected to, every moment 
in expectation of being turned out of doors and having notice that 
no more provisions would be dressed for them. To gentlemen in 
that delicate situation, thougli enemies, we could not avoid render- 
ing every service in our power. We made interest witli some of 
the inliabitants to afford them private lodging witli lirf wood and 
candles. At these i)rivate houses tliey lodged and breakfasted, at- 
tended by their own s(;rvants, and as it was inconvenient for private 
families to dress dinners and suppers for them, we i)revailed upon 
Mr. Jolm Jordan, whose demand is the most considerable, to mess 
them at his house. And tliougii we did not absolutely engage for 
the payment of tlieir demand, yet as we assured tiiem of our influ- 
ence in procuring tliem satisfaction in case tlie ollicei"s should be 
niiable to pay them, we have tlie greatest reasons to believe these 
assurances from us were their principal inducement to entertain 
tliese gentlemen. They now resort to iis, and we must look up to 
the Honorable the Congress. "We must dotliat justice to theoflicers 
of the 7th regiment to mention tliat none of tiiese demands relate 
to tliat corps except tlie trilling sum of XG 10s Od due to Micliael 
Bartges, and that the residue is entirely for the lodging and ac. 
commodation of tiie liGlh regiment. 

The Committee have been higlily homn-ed and very hajipy in tiie 
testimony they have received of the approbation of Congress, re- 
si)ecting liieir former conduct toward tiie ollicers and soldiers, pris- 
oners here. We could not be idle spectators of tlie distress tliese 
gentlemen were reduced to. We could not, as a Committee, avoid 
taking notice of their application ; neither could we place them in 
a situation which would have been less expensive, without treating 
tiiem in a manner different from that recommened to us by the 
Honorable the Congress, who, we hope will in the present case, 
suffer our conduct to ))ass witiiout censure, and order in what man- 
ner these people's demands are to be satisfied. 

We beg leave to ask if the former resolve of Congress, permitting 
the oflicers to come at times from their places of residence to Lan- 
caster, for the purpose of settling with and paying their men. and 
receiving the necessary receii)ts for their rations, are to be deemed 
still in force, and whether, upon application of the soldiers for shoes 
or any necessary clothing (those api)lications now Ijecoming fre- 
quent), this Committee shall provide them, at the Continental ex- 
pense V We shall steadily persist in carrying into execution evei-y 
resolve of tlie Honorable the Congress, and be strictly attentive t(> 
their directions and recommendations.

THE LANCASTER COMMITTEE TO THE GENERAL 
COMMITTEE. 



In Committee for Lancaster County, 
Lancaster, April 11, 177G. 

Gentlemen : We received your Letter of the 30"» March a few 
Days ago, but as the Committee of the wiiole county was appointed 
to meet shortly after, the consideration of the same was postponed 
until tliis Time. 

Your Information with Respect to our having had much Trouble 
before we could get the Gun-Smiths to Work, was well grounded. 
We for our own Parts think our Time well bestowed in forwarding 
a Business so essentially necessary to the Well Being of the Com- 
munity. It would have given us the highest Pleasure to have found 
the event of our Labours correspond with our Inclinations. 

The Gun-Smiths residing in this Borough met us in Committee 
this afternoon. Some of them have proposed to furnish us with 
thirty Rifles, in six Weeks, others with the same quantity in two 
or three months, and a few wno are not so strong-iianded with a 
lesser numl)er within those Terms. They ii.sist on the Price of 
£4.10 per Rille (to be made with wooden Boxes) and say they can 
get £5 from the neighboring Governments for such Work. We had 
received no Instructions from you and therefore could enter into 
no particular Stipulations with them. Tiiis Board have had no op- 
portunity to confer with the Gun Smiths in the county on this Sub- 
ject, but will attempt it as soon as i)0ssible. We perceive clearly 
that your Body have judged with the greatest Propriety, in fixing 
tiie Number of ISIuskets made by each Workmen, as the Proportion 
by which the Rilles are to be furnished. Your Desire of Co-oper- 
ating with us tfc not immediately applying to our Smiths, least it 
should impede our Musket work, demand our acknowledgments. 
We cannot think that our Gun-Smiths, even while they are making 
of Ritles, should altogetlier throw aside the Musket Business. 

We conceive it our Duty, Gentlemen, to intimate to you, that 
the chief obstacle against the Finishing of the Rifles speedily, con- 
sists in the Want of Locks. There is Reason to believe that some 
of our Workmen have bought up a Quantity of Locks, which they 
would not willingly spare to their Neigiibours, who are not so well 
])rovided. A Recommendation from your Honourable Board to 
such l^ersons to supply others with those articles, at a generous, 
tho' not unreasonable Price, might be attended witii good effects. 
We suggest this Matter to you for your consideration. 

We have also to request that you would be pleased to furnish our 
Conunissioners with an additional Sum of INIonoy, in order to dis- 
charge the Balhuices due to the different Tradesmen for Muskets, 



AND MILITIA OF THE REVOLUTIOX. 519 

Cartridge-Boxes, &c. Tlieir Situations in Life are sucli as indis- 
pensibly demand tlieir Money wiien tliey have completed their 
Work. Our Ciun-Smiths particularly, feel the Want of Cash as we 
have precluded tliem (or attempted it) from all other Work, until 
the public Necessities are sui)plied. 

The Field Ohicers of this County have required of us some more 
copies of the Articles of Association, and the llules and Kegula- 
tions for the better Government of the military associators. Tliose 
already sent up to us by you, have not been suflicient to answer the 
Purpose of this County. We therefore request you will transmit 
us a few more copies, in order that one general System may prevail 
amongst us. 

Amid your more important Business, we beg to be favoured with 
an answer to our Letter of the 16"' March, respecting the allowance 
to be made for the Muskets, and also to this Letter as soon as may 
be consistant with your Convenience. We shall then be enabled 
finally to close with our Gun-Smiths, and thereby greatly expedite 
this necessary Service. 

We are. Gentlemen,

Gentlemen: Lieut. Dunininty of the I'O"' Regiment has appeared 
this Evening in Committee. Not benig persouall\ acquainted witli 
any Member of your Board, he lias desired us to make liis applica- 
tion to you concerning the place of his future Residence. 

From a former letter of ours to you, you Avill i)erceive that the 
other Onicers Prisoners of tlie2G"' Regiment were .Stationed by this 
Committee at York Town in pursuance to the directions which you 
gave us. "We made this observation to Lieut Dullliunty ifcexiiressed 
our Sentiments, thus his Rout seemed to be (i.xed thitlier. To this 
he objected, that during his sliort stay in Philad. he conceived he 
had it in his Election eitiier to goto York or Reading. And that 
he was then a Stranger to a fact which now weiglis greatly with 
liim. The small Pox he is informed rages with violence in the 
Town of York, and has proved Fatal to many Persons infected 
with this disease. He has two young children with hii;i. one at the 
Breast of ;M^\ Dullhunty who have not had that disorder. The 
Parents' feelings, under such circumstances, were strong Induce-

From a former letter of ours to you, you will perceive that the

Committee at York Town in pursuance to the directions which you 
gave us. "We made this observation to Lieut Dullliunty it expressed 
our Sentiments, thus his Rout seemed to be fixed thither. To this 
he objected, that during his short stay in Philad. he conceived he 
hud it in his Election eitiier to go to York or Reading. And that 
he was then a Stranger to a fact which now weiglis greatly with 
him. Tlie small Pox he is informed rages with violence in the 
Town of York, and has proved Fatal to many Persons infected 
with tills disease. He has two young children with him. one at the 
Breast of M''. Dullliunty who have not liad that disorder. The 
Parents" feelings, under such circumstances, were strong Induce- 
ments to us to trouble you with his application. Should it bethought 
improper liiat Lieut. Dullliunty should continue in this Town where 
the Privates wiio are Prisoners are stationed, lie requests to be per-

Soldiers who are Prisoners there, tliis Committee are willing to in- 
dulge those Gent", in any Station that will be most convenient and

out any other place where they can be better accomm''. than in your

be done consistent with the Rules of the Congress. Lieut. Cup-

that purpose which Mr. Cuppaidge may carry with him to York

THE GENERAL COMMITTEE TO THE COMMITTEE OF 
LANCASTER. 



Philadelphia, Maij ;?«""', 1776. 
To the Committee of Inspection and Observation for the County oj 

Lancaster. 

We are under frequent Necessity of addressing you ui)on Subjects 
of publick Concern, of which the present is not the most unim- 
portant. It is upon Occasion of the Uneasiness and Dissatisfac- 
tion, that we are told have ])revailed in some ])arts of the County, 
on account of the high Prices to which many of the imported Arti- 
cles of Merchandize, and some Necessaries of Life have advanced. 
But before we proceed further, it is proper to declare our Opinion 
that the Scarcity productive of these high Prices, is not an artificial 
but a real one, proceeding from the late absolute iirohibitions of 
one important Branch of our Trade, and the Risque and Danger 
which have attended every other. 

From wliatever Source a general Discontent arises, it cannot fail 
in this critical Season of our Affairs, to have the worst CoiKsequences, 
but in our Capacity as Guardians in some Measure of the publick 
AVelfare, it would give us infinite Satisfaction if the Evil in ques- 
tion, whicii will be removed with better Times, could be referred to 
its true Cause, the peculiar Situation m which the Country is 



524 ASSOCIATED BATTALIONS 

placed, rather tliaii to a general Inclination in individual Trades, 
to Rapaciousness and Extortion. If even it should be supposed 
tiiat Avarice lias no small Sliare in producing this Complaint, this, 
although higlily blameable should be patiently submitted to, for at 
what Time, or in what Country, has there not been some sordid 
]\Iinds ready to i)rey upon tlie publick Necessities. Sucli Disjwsi- 
tion to extortion may indeed be but tooconnnon, we find it prevail 
vvliere at least one of tlie Motives to it mentioned above, cannot be 
pretended. AVe have seen one of tiie Articles of our own produce. 
Flax, lately raised in price to twice its former Value. 

We know not where a Remedy can be applied, for a Knowledge 
of human nature should teacli us, that so Inordinate and crafty a 
Vice as Avarice has Ways to elude all the Force and Restraints of 
Authority, and truly in such Cases the Interposition of Power 
would sometimes produce more mischievous Consequences than the 
Evil it affected to cure. 

We lament as the greatest Misfortune any Cause that has a Ten- 
dency to sow Discord among us, and promote Dissention, at a Time 
wlien nothing short of the closest Union can save us from Destruc- 
tion. We lament that Clamours sliould be excited where they can- 
not but be imavailable ; we would rather our Countrymen should 
consider whether the real, although temporary Inconvenience, tliey 
now feel, may not by care and Industry be converted into as real 
and ])ermanent Benefits. It may, if rightly improved, teach us the 
Art of supplying our own Wants by our own Hands. Had it not 
been for tlie excessive Dearness of foreign Linnen, pi'obably we 
sliould not have tlie present Prospect of relief in that Article, wliicli 
the abundant Quantities of Flaxseed lately sown affords us. Hap- 
pily there are few Wants which this Country cannot of itself sup- 
ply ; if we look about us, every Farm can afford some Substitute 
for almost every necessary Article that is now imported ; these need 
not be pointed out, being well known. 

It is these Sentiments wiiich only can produce a chearful Acquie- 
scence under the present Circumstances of our Affairs, and a de- 
termined Spii-it of Exertion to resist the Efforts of Tyranny: such 
Sentiments we expect will be inculcated by all Men of understand- 
ing and Infiuence ni their respective Neiglibourhoods, and such 
we make no doubt from a Sense of your publick Duty, as well as 
from your Patriotism, and well-known Attachments to the common 
Cause, you will lose no Opjiortunity whatever to excite.

to go a Fishing, as they sometimes amused themselves tiiat Way,

nor which way they toock can be Discovered. But it is Generally 
thought here, that tliey have made towards New York by private 
Roads over tlie mountains. We have dispached persons to Jones's,

I do Certify that I saw Major Rogers on Tuesday night, between 
the hours of 9 & 10 o'clock. & that Cap. Murray desired him to re- 
pair to his Quarters at that time as lie wanted to go the Rounds, 
& after that he was playing Billiards with Dr. Allison, and before 
the game was ended he went down stairs & in a few minutes after 
he went away Cap. Murray came in the Room to inquire after him. 
I observed that Cap. Murray was very particular with him & would 
not suffer liim to walk unless he attended him.

Sir : Your Express arrived liere last Night between ten & eleven 
o'clock, with the Ordinance of Convention for disarming tiie Non- 
Associators, and the Circular Letters to the Commanding Otlicers 
of the Battalions of Associators in this County, and tiiis Morning 
about S o'clock we dispatched three Expresses to different parts of 
the County, with a circular Letter and Ordinance to each of the 
commanding officers of the Battalions agreeable to the orders of 
Convention, so that by twelve or one o'clock to Day we expect 
those officers will be possessed of them & have no doubt, will do 
every thing in their power to forward the march of the militia. 
We shall with great cheerfulness agreeable to the commands of the 
Honourable Convention "aid and assist them as far as in our power 
to carry the Recommendation of Congress into the most immediate 
& effectual execution by providing them with every necessary which 
we possibly can." We have assisted such Companys as were ready 
or nearly so, with Cash, Camp Kettles it a few Muskets and Bay- 
onets, & our Gunsmiths have been busy for a few Days past in re- 
pairing their arms, but we think it our Duty to mention to the Con- 
vention that our Stores are nearly exhausted. We have distributed 
our Muskets & Bayonets so that we have hardly sufficient in good 
order to relieve (with decency) our necessary Guards. Our Tin- 
workers are out of Tin so that no more Camp Kettles can be ex- 
pected from them, and we have taken up the chief part of the cash 
to be found amongst the money'd Men, which we have distributed 
amongst the officers to enable tiiem to advance something to such 
of their People as stood in need of it, and beg lieve to submit it to 
the Convention, whether Moneys should not be immediately lodged 
liere \n proper Hands, to be paid by direction of the Committee to 
the officers who march witli the Militia for tiie use of their Men, 
most of whom require some little necessarys & many of them have 
Family's with whom they would choose to leave a few Shillings. 
We should be happy to have it in our power to supply these or any 
other necessary's to our Militia as they march— their applications 
are to us— they expect here to be equip'd and assisted, and it gives 
us pain to see their disappointment. Our Tin workers say there is 
no Tin to be had in Piiiladelphia ; should there be any in the pub- 
lick Magazines to spare, we could keep our Tin Men employed in 
making Kettles & Cantins for the Troops. We shall use our best 
endeavors to keep our Gunsmiths busy, and shall do everytliing in

Lancaster, the ir,"" Dec'. 177G. 

Gentlemen: The inclosed is Copy of a Letter which I received 
last Night by Express from Colonel Burd. And as the Moneys for- 
warded by the Council of Safety to me to advance to tl)eCompanys 
who sliould march from the respective Battalions in this County 
amounted to but Six Thousand nine Hundred & sixt5'-six Dollars 
& «■' of a Dollar, tliat is 696? Dollars for each Company of ten Com- 
pan vs. I could not comply with tlie request of Col". Burd, liowever, 
as he mentioned that liis whole Battalion were to march I ventured 
to send liim (^ne Thousand DolLirs, and at the same time wrote him 
that I should send an Express to the Council of Safety & perhaps 
Avould have it in my Power to furnish him better wlien he reached 
Lancaster. 

Colonel Galbraith's Battalion we are told will move on Saturday 
next, and as he likewise may make a demand exceeeding his pro- 
l)ortion of the Moneys forwarded to me by the Council of Safety. 
I am requested by the Committee, to ask the directions of the 
Council of Safety in these and similar Cases during the Marcli of 
-Militia, & should the Council think proper to forward a further 



AND MILITIA OF THE llEVOLUTIOX. 531 

Sum for the Commanding Officers of the Battalions, to request that 
it may be done as expeditiously as possible that the Men may pro- 
vide themselves with necessarys. The Militia of Lancaster seem 
rather backward, owing principally to this, that many of our spirited 
officers and young Men are gone as Escorts to the Prisoners sent 
from hence & upon their return have hopes they will turn out to 
tlie assistance of tlieir Brethren. There are a few of the Militia 
from Cumberland County arrived here, who say that large Num- 
bers are on their way down. Tlie Battalion from NortluiinVierland 
are also soon expected. Such numbers passing tliro cannot be bil- 
leted on the Tavernkeepers, and as our Barracks are now empty 
(except a few sick wlio could not be removed) they are cleaning out 
for the reception of tlie Troops as they pass. Providing for tiiem 
there will be less expensive than at tlie Taverns on Billet. But as 
to this, with the mode of providing for them, the quantity of pro- 
visions to be allowed, tlie api)ointment of a Commissary to provide 
for tliem, the Fund and mode of payment, &c., the Committee beg 
the directions of the Council of Safety by the return of this Mes- 
senger. 

I am also directed to mention to the Council that we shall im- 
mediately require a large Sum to pay the Expence of tlie Escorts 
and Waggons sent with the Prisoners; they took near Sixty Wag- 
gons. Under 30s. a day we could not get a wnggon to go at this 
Season of the Year, & even at that rate were under tlie necessity 
of sending Parties of armed Men, intodifferent Townsliips to press 
them & bring them in. We had to engage that theysliould bei)aid 
here & hope tiie lion'''- Council will enable us to make them satis- 
faction on their return. 

We have frequently requested orders respecting the Baggage of 
the officers who went from Lebanon, & should be glad to know how 
Ave are to dispose of it. 

We are also considerably in Debt to the Workmen and otliers for 
the Works carried on by the orders of Congress at the Barracks 
here. Two Companies of Guards will likewise have their pay due 
on the 17"' instant & will want it to equip them for their march to 
Piiilad'. Tiiese things will take we think about fifteen Hundred 
Pounds, which we hope we may be enabled to pay. 

Tlie Committee, to encourage the Farmers to turn out with their 
Waggons to the assistance of the Inhabitants of Pliilad'. have 
made a kind of promise that every Waggon should have a Bushel 
of Salt there on paying the price fixed by the Council of Safety, & 
desire me to mention that by this promise many have engaged to 
go, <t hope the Council will i)lease to let them have some.

Lancaster, December the 3P', 1770. 

Sir : Your favour of the 15"' instant by George Strahly I received 
with fifteen thousand Dollars for the purpose of advancing the 
Militia a Month's pay, and such other public uses as tlie Commit- 
tee of Lancaster may find necessary. 

Tiie Council by tliat Letter directed the Committee to appoint a 
Commissary to supply tlie Militia, who on their way tlirough Lan- 
caster might be lodged in our Barracks with the Rations allowed 
by Congress, and as to the subsistance of the Battalions of our 
County on their march to join General Washington left it to tlie 
choice of the otiicers of each Battalion to receive a penny \)\ Mile 
or appoint a Commissary to supply them with Rations. 

Agreeable to those orders the Committee appointed ]Mr. Christian 
Wirtz Commissary, and finding from many reiiresentations that it 
Avould be dillicult to |)rocure provisions for the Troops on the Road, 
it that the Taveriikeepers exacted an extravagant i)rice for siu;h as 
they did furnish, we ventured to direct Mr. Wirtz not only to siiii- 
ply all the Trooi)s who should pass thro' here & request it, with 
the accustomed Rations while here, but to furnish them with Ra- 
tions to last them to Philadelphia. This mode of furnishing them 
appeared to the Committee the most certain & least expensive, & 



AND MILITIA OF THE REVOLUTIOX. 533 

seemed the most agreeuble to many of the othcers of the Parties on 
their way, as tiiey had tiieir Baggage Waggons with tliem & at tliis 
season of the yearconld carry Bread A: Beef for three or fonr Days. 
To these was added where recjuested some Potatoes or Turnips iV a 
little Salt, so that at tiieir Stages tliey iiad notiiing to request of 
tlie Landlords but House Room & the use of Kettles to dress tiieir 
victuals, and some dressed it before tliey left this. Tlie known 
scarcity of Provisions on tlie Road & backwardness of the ]niblick 
Housekeepers to furnish it, induced the Committee thus far to ex- 
ceed the orders of tlie Council ; they however hope the measure will 
be approved of by the Council and that their Commissary's just ac- 
counts will be allowed. 

On the 23' of this month tlie Committee were honoured with the 
Council's Letter of the 9'" instant, mentioning that the Council had 
sent a quantity of Powder to our care. We think it our Duty to 
mention that no Powder hath come to our charge. A quantity of 
Powder did arrive in Town a few Days before the receipt of that 
Letter, and General Miftiin being then in Town with Col. Bird from 
Ileadmg & they having appointed Mr. George lioss, jun., a Deputy 
Quarter Master here, that ]\iwder was l)y the General ordered into 
Mr. Ross's care, & is very jirobably the I'owder meant by the Coun- 
cil. On receipt of the Letter I waited on the General, who men- 
tioned that ]\Ir. Ross would take charge of those things, and that 
he & ]\Ir. Bird would have the proper Guard appointed. However 
no Guard is as yet appointed, I'v: the Committee cannot look on 
themselves as having the charge of those things without further 
directions, & by the by, if the Guard is to be selected from the In- 
habitants of Lancaster or places adjacent, the committee cant help 
thinking themselves more proper Persons, than Strangers, to choose 
and direct it. The same thing has happened with regard to the 
Beef, &c., sent up. About the same time and daily since Waggons 
have arrived witli tliose articles. They were ordered by the General 
& Mr. Bird into the care of Mr. Ross as they arrived. After a few 
days I found those articles by Tickets with the Waggoners were 
directed by Mr. Snowden, assistant Commissary, to my charge, & 
some of the Waggoners called on me to receive their Loads & pay 
their (Carriage, but as Mr. Ross had received several quantities I 
directed the residue to him it continue to do so, to prevent confu- 
sion in the accounts, and left Mr. Ross to pay the Carriage, as it 
would appear absurd in me to bring a charge for Carriage of articles 
addressed to me, when I could render no account of them. 

I am directed by the Committee to mention that one, Mr. Louis 
Lorbenier, a French Priest, who by a Commission from Congress 
appears to be a Chaplain in the Continental Service resides here 
(liaving left Philadelphia at the time of tlie alnrni). He has a Cer- 
tilicate from Mr. J. Gibson of a Month's pay «i his Rations being 



534 ASSOCIATED BATTALIONS 

due to him early in this Month amounting to Hi dollars. He seems 
to be out of Cash, & liath applied to us for his pay. We were sen- 
sible of the impropriety of our paying him, but at his earnest en- 
treaty trouble the Council with his case for their directions. By 
his own account he seems to have been very active in our favour in 
Canada A:; is apprehensive of very severe treatment should he fall 
into tlie Hands of the Enemy. 

I have tiie pleasure to mention that General Mifflin's presence 
has roused the Militia of this place to arms. Some Companies of 
Colonel Ross's Battalion marched yesterday, some go to day, *fc 
others to morrow, & tiiey will be followed by the Town Companys 
of Colonel Slougii's Battalion the next day. 

The Council do me great honour by their approbation of my con- 
duct expressed in your Letter, & by the confidence placed in me. 
I think I shall not abuse it, & am luippy when 1 have it in my power 
to render an essential service to my injured Country. 
I have the honour to be. Sir, 

Your most obedient Serv'.,

Lancaster, January the 7'", 1777. 

Sir : Your Letter of theo"* instant respecting the Plunder in tlie 
possession of the Hessian Prisoners was lianded to me this afternoon 
by Express. I liave not yet had an opportunity of communicating 
the Contents of it to tiie Gentlemen appointed with me to examine 
them, but shall do it this Evening if possible & endeavor to morrow 
to do as requested with all the address we are masters of. Your 
Express also lianded to me a number of Addresses to tiiepublickin 
English & German wliicli the Committee will have distributed as 
directed. Also the Resolves of the Ilon''''^ Congress & Council 
of Safety in respect to the Continental Currency a copy of which is 
now in the Hands of the Printer to translate, with directions to 
print 1000 in German & the like number in English agreeable to 
your Orders, which when done will be circulated thro' the Country 
& we hope will have a very^ good effect. 

I had the honour to-day by tlie return of Cap'. Murray, of men- 
tioning the arrival of the Hessian Prisoners here. That on ac. 
count of the uneasiness of the Inhabitants we had hired a i)lace 
out of Town at a small distance from tlie Barracks as a JNIagazine 
for the Powder and Stores sent up here : & that we had agreed to 
take into Continental pay a Company of about Sixty of the Militia 
to do duty as Guard to the Prisoners, Stores, &c., until relieved by 
others who the Hon''''' Congress or Council should ai)point to that 
duty. AVith some other Matters as to which we beg the Sentiments

THE COMMITTEE TO PRESIDENT WHARTON. 



Lancaster, the J""' January, 1777. 
Sir : In obedience to the Orders of the Council in your Letter of 
the 5"' instant to Mess''. Lowman, Ilubley, Bowsman & myself, we 
have had the Hessian prisoners paraded & their Baggage and apart- 
ments searched, and I am directed by those Gentlemen to mention 
to the Council that we could not. find anything which had the ap- 
pearance of plunder, except two or three pieces of old brass Desk-

mounting, not worth taking away. 'In the Bundle of one of them 
was a Sheet whicli the possessor assured us he bought at Princeton 
to make Shirts of. & with another was a Silver Spoon which he as- 
serted he brought from Germany, & as it had the marks of age ct 
German workmanship we left it with him. Nothing else of value 
was to be found in their Baggage or apartments. There is a Silver 
AVatch with one of tl.-e officers of the Militia here, which was handed 
to him by one of the Hessian Serjeants to get repaired. In the 
outer Case of tlie Watch is a neat advertisment of a watch Maker 
iu Baltimore with a small piece of paper charging one Lieut. Mause 
with repairs & to tiie Chain is a Seal with the Letters F. W. M., 
and iu the Hands of one of the Inhabitants here is a Silver Watch 
made by Johnston of Liverpool, wliicli shew^s the Day of the Month, 
&c., for which the person gave a Serjeant of the Hessians 29 Dol- 
lars. These Watches we have ordered those Persons to keep in 
their Hands & not part with them, till they have furtlier directions, 
botii the Serjeants asserting tiiey are their own property fairly pur- 
chased & not plundered. 

I beg leave to hand the Council a List of the Tradesmen among 
the Ilession prisoners. A design of luiving the prisoners paraded 
& their Names called over once or twice a week by the othcer of the 
Guard induced me to order the Serjeants of the Prisoners a Day or 
two after their arrival to furnish Lists of their Companys, & cu- 
riosity prompted me to require tiie Trades of sucli as were Trades- 
men to l)e marked opposite their Names. Upon examining the 
Lists cS: linding so great a number of Tradesmen among them, I 
thought it a duty to the public to mention it to tlie Council, & hope 
it will jilease. I have no doubt but numbers of them would gladly 
be employed, & should it be thought proper to suffer it, it might 
not be amiss to fall upon some method of preventing the Master 
Workmen from outbidding one another for their Services. Tliis 
was the Case with the other prisoners when here. They would gladly 
have worked for small wages rather than be confined in the Bar- 
racks; hands were scarce, the Master Workmen kept raising their 
wages from time to time to keep them from changing places, the 
Fellows soon knew their own importance & made tiieir own Terms, 
& the advance to tliem was of course charged by the Masters to the 
publick. 

Mr. Cin-istian Wirtz yesterday presented to the Committee the 
Ilesolves of Council appointing iiim Town Major, with the Resolves 
for the Committee here to '• direct a sufficient number of aged or 
infirm Persons wlio are unfit to bear the fatigues of a Campaign to 
be enrolled under tlie Town Major for the purpose of guarding the 
Prisoners in the Barracks and the ammunition & Stores during tiie 
absence of the Militia," with the Resolve respecting tlie march of 
the remaining Town Companys of Col. Ross's & Col. Slough's Bat- 



AND MILITIA OF THE REVOLUTION. 537 

talions. The Committee always with cheerfuhiess endeavour to 
carry the Resolves of Council into execution, but upon considera- 
tion order me to mention that they think it impracticable to find 
such a Guard, after marching tiie Militia. They have tried several 
methods to get one or two of these Companys to marcli, but all to 
no purpose, as the language among tliem is that all shall go or 
none will go. We had therefore some tlioughts of making up a 
Company from among those wlio have had the fatigue of the flying 
Camp & are" lately returned. They seem entitled to a share of the 
easy military duties amongst us. Having no Families or occupa- 
tions ill the Town they would be the more attentive to their duty. 
A couple of the Block Houses at the Corners of the Stockades which 
command a view of the Stockades within & without miglit very 
easily & at a small expense be fitted up for their reception & there 
they might constantly & very comfortably reside and draw their 
Rations. We thing such a Company by writing to tlie several 
Colonels who have had Men in the flying Camp would be imme- 
diately had, & the Companys here being then upon an etiual foot- 
ing we hope would march without furtlier objections. We are sorry 
so many objections have appeared, and it gives us pain to be under 
the necessity of troubling the Council so frequently on the sub- 
ject. 

We are not yet favoured with the directions of tlie Council re- 
specting tlie allowance to be made to the Tavernkeei)eis for pro- 
viding victuals for the Militia, and as there are many instances 
where the Men have their own Provisions with them or draw it 
here & liave it cooked at the Taverns, we should be ghtd to know 
the allowance to be made the Tavernkeepers in those Cases for their 
Fire, Candle, &c., & trouble with them. 

Colonel Mackay writes me that the first Division of his Battalion 
left Carlisle on the ir"* instant, and that the 2'^ & last were to leave 
it on the 12'^'', on their way to Philad". by way of Lancaster, where 
he hath requested Quarters ready for 620 Men, of wliieli I have 
given the Quarter Master notice, & should the publick Houses be 
too much crowded with other troops, we must endeavour to pre- 
vail on the private Houses to take them in, 
I have the honour to bf , 

Sir, your most obed'. humble Serv'., 

WILL. ATLEE. 

An oQicer from Col. McKay is just arrived to provide Quarters 
for part of the Battalion, & desires me to mention that tlie Bat- 
talion is very badly off for want of shoes & stockings, & would be 
glad two or three hundred pair of each could be forwarded so as to 
meet them on the road. Il-e says they purpose waiting here three 
or four days to rest the Men.

Gentlemen: At the time the Britisii prisoners weie removed 
from hence, a few who were then unwell continued at tlie Barracks 
here. They are now so far recovered as to be able to travel, and 
Colonel McCoy mentioning that the rear Guard of his Battalion 
shall take them in charge, the Committee have thouglit best to send 
them from hence to be disposed of as the Council of Safety shall 
tliink best, as they belong to the 7"' & 26"^ Regiments & are part of 
those taken prisoners at St. Jolni's and Chamblee. A List of tlieir 
Names are inclosed. Tiiey occupied two of tiie Rooms in our Bar- 
racks. Those Rooms are now wanted for the Hessians & Wal. 
deckers. It seemed imi)roper to have these persons so near to &

THE COMMITTEE TO TRESIDEXT WHARTON. 



In Committee, Lancaster, y C" January, 1777. 

Sin : On tlie 5"' instant, Cap'. Murray and his Guard arrived here 
witii tlie Hessian Prisoners, (I think about Eight Hundred & 
tliirty) who are placed in our Barracks. They are ratlier crowded 
at present, being seventeen in a room, but in the course of a week 
we shall be able to give them more room, as the carpenters are now 
busy in laying in Floors in the additional Buildings, and when that 
is done we can stow away a fexo more. Tliey have not received the 
least insult since they came here, & agreeable to the request of the 
Council of Safety, the Inhabitants seem disposed to treat them with 
civility. Tliey are kept from having intercourse with any but such 
persons as the Committee permits to see them, & the Rev'. Mr. 
Helmutt of the Lutheran Concrregation, the Rev'. ]SIr. Ilelfensteiu 
of the Calvinist Congregation & Mr. Ileyney of the Moravians with 
the Members of Committee are ai)pointed their Visitors; & the 
two former propose sometimes giving them a Sermon in German. 

As a Guard to them & the Stores placed here the Commitee find 
themselves under the necessity of taking into Continental pay about 
Sixty or Seventy of the IMilitia of the Town, to do duty until others 
m.iy be ordered to relieve them. In the Guard none will be ad- 
mitted wiio have sliown a backwardness when called upon to march 
with the Militia, & in a conference with Colonels Ross ifc Slough 
we have agreed to fix them in the following manner: there is one 
Comp'y of Col. Ross's remaining here & two of Col. Slough's; one 
of Colonel Slough's is immediately to inarch; from the other & 
Cap'. Musser's (of Ross's) are to be taken the Men who turned out 
to join the Camp. Tiiese together will we think anjount to about 
sixty or seventy, & are to do duty as one Company under one set of 
otiicers, who are to be taken as equally as may be from the two 
Companys & be charged monthly, & as to those who have skulked 
we are determined to be active in securing them cS: forwarding them 
after their Companys. 

The Inhabitants being uneasy at the Powder & some other Stores 
being placed in our Court House & new' Goal, we liave taken the 
House at Mr. Fortinee's out-Lot (a place known to the Members 
from hence) for its reception. It seems the most proper i)lace about 
the Town for a iNlagazine, & Mr. G. Ross, jun., or some Person un- 
der his direction will we believe begin this day to lemove the Pow- 
der, &c., tliere. It is within view of the Guard House at tlie Bar- 
racks ifc projier Gentries will be placed to secure it. "We are obliged 
to prouiise ^Ir. Fortinee that the publick will make good to hira any 
damages which his Building may sustain by the Powder & Stores 
being placed there. 



AND MILITIA OF THE REYOLUTIOX. 54! 

As our Barracks are now taken up with the Prisoners, we are 
again obliged to place the Militia & Troops passing tiiro' here 
among tlie Taverns. They are much averse to it, & many of them 
took down their signs upon tlie occasion. However a deputation 
from tlie Committee went round amongst them, & promised to use 
our iiiUuence with the Council to have their allowance increased to 
12d or 15,1 p^ Meal, upon which the Q^ Master was desired to pro- 
ceed in placing the Troops with the Tavernkeepers & tliey have, 
tho' much against the Grain, accepted them. AVe beg the Council s 
sentiments on tliis matter. The prices of every kind of pvm'isions 
amongst us are greatly raised, »& it is really difficult to get tlie nec- 
essary supplys for the Town from the Farmers as heretofore, an 
evil which if not soon remidied may be productive of bad conse- 
quences.

WILLIAM ATLEE TO PRESIDENT REED. 



Lancaster, December y'^ C0'\ 1779. 

Dear Sir : I have the honour of youi- Letter of the 22' instant, 
repecting tlie Lands called tiie Indian Town, in or near Connestogoe 
Mannor, said to be purcliased lately by Mr. John Musser from John 
Penn, Esquire ; and had hopes that among my old Papers Ishould 
have found some Memorandums, which Avould have afforded me 
the pleasure of giving Council, with exactness, the contents of the 
agreement between William Penn «fc the Indians as to those Lands. 
As upon the Indians being killed at tlie Town, the (then) Sheriff, 
Jolm Hay, Esquire, secured their Papers and I took a particular 
account of them, (witli the Indian and Country Names of the In- 
dians belonging to tlie Town & the Tribes tliey were of). i\: imagined 
I still have it, tho' after two Days search among old dusty Papers 
I can't yet lay my Hands upon it. 

I have found the List which I then took of the Indians who were 
killed at the Town & in the Work House in Lanca.«ter, and tlie 
rough Draught of a Letter which I penned from the Sheriff to the 
then Governor, to whom the Deeds and Papers were (I think) sent. 
In this Draught is a short account of the Papers; but not so par- 
ticularly set forth as in the List or Memorandum I took for myself. 
However here follows extracts from it relating to them : 

"A writing on Parchment purporting an article of jieace & amity 
concluded on between the Governor of Maryland & C;ip'. Civility, 
Chief of the Connestogoe Indians; Massawanoe, Chief of the Cha- 
wanas; Wewinjock, Chief of the Connoyes, and Owakelo, Chief of 
the Delaware Indians in behalf of themselves A; the Indians under 
their Government." 

"A Letter (which seems to be under the lesser Seal of tiie Pro- 
vince) signed W. Keith, dated Philadelphia, May 26"', 1719. directed 
to Civility »& the rest of the Indian Chiefs at Connestogoe." 

"A writing i)nri)orting a Letter (which seems to be under the 
lesser Seal of the Province) signed W. Keitli, dated at Philad", o'" 
May. 1719. directed to Civility or Tagotelessa and the Indian Chiefs 
at and near Connestogoe."

niack in the said Province, for and in behalf of themselves and suc- 
cessors & tiieir several Nations and people on the other part." 

This last, I think, is the article which relates to those Lands, & 
as near as I can recollect tliey were to remain for the use of a 
Family of tlie Mingo Tribe, of which Shehaes or Jo. Hays, an old 
Indian man who was killed at the Town, was then the head, and 
their or his Descendants, & upon that Family's extinction, to re- 
main to the Prourietors ; but as my memory may not serve me, so 
as to give a true state of the affair, at this distance of time, I shall 
as you request, endeavour to get some information froin Mrs. Su- 
sanna Wriglit, & shall in the meantime have a further search for 
my memorandum respecting it. 

Mr. Musser was at my House the day after I received your Let- 
ter, »& I then learning from him that he had not yet received a Deed 
for the Lands nor paid the whole purchase money, I noticed him 
against proceeding further in the affair, & advised him to wait on 
the Council respecting it ; which he assured me he would do in the 
course of a few Days. He has since left Lancaster for Philadelphia. 

Mr. Barton hopes he will be allowed to take the Crop in the 
Ground for the benefit of himself & the young Family his Father 
has left behind, as it was put in before they had any notice 
of the sale by Mr. Penn, or the claim of the State, and Mr. Hall 
the agent will, in the Course of a Day or two, go and take posses- 
sion of the place for the State. 

I shall not fail to deliver your Message to my Brother as soon as 
I see him. which I hourly expect. I find there are some Persons 
amongst us who purpose pushing him for Councellor in case of the

wiio says he lias among his Father's Papers a receipt for the Papers 
wliich belonged to tlie Indians, and as soon as he returns lionie will 
search for it and forward it to me. If he does I shall do myself the 
Honour to give it a speedy conveyance to you.

I have just received the inclosed from Mr. Hay. I had desired 
him to give me liis sentiments of tlie agreement between Mr. Penn

to me I forward them.

Siu; The Indian liigiits for tiie land in the Canastoga mennor 
were lodged in my hands and lay with me for some considerable 
time. Upon an order (from whom I can't at present recollect) I 
delivered the writing to Cap'". Thomas McKee and took his lleceipt 
for the delivery of the same, to the person who sent the order. The 
Grant of the land to the Indians gave them a Right to the land no 
longer than they pleased to live on the same. They had no Right 
to sell if they left it. This I think was the Tennor of their Right. 
I will look for the Receipt when I go home and send it to you.

talioii, wlio utter every unbecoming riotous expressions, oppossing 
and resisting tlie Laws of this State, speaking contemptously against 
tlieni, detaining, slandering, and scoring Congress and General 
Washington in a mean manner, to the greatest Astonishment and 
vexation of the spirited and well Affected people and bad example 
of others. Absolutely refusing either to Attend on any of the ex- 
ercising days and paying tlieir Fines for non-attendance, as also the 
Assessment for hiring tiie Yolimteers, and we have given them all 
the indulgence and patience we Lawfully could to avoid the dis- 
agreeable steps wliicli we are now compelled to take, having ])ut up 
Advertisements in their district wherein we appointed a day re- 
quired them to meet and pay their Fines and Volunteer Assess- 
ments. Offered to take the same without any further (Jharge or 
cost, but contrary and against all the good intents and meaning 
they refused to make payment thereof and continued in their old 
absurd way; menaced and abused the Collecter in a rough man- 
ner, expressed sundrey menacing words against him, that he should 
be a dead man if he Attempted to demand the Fines or any part 
thereof. In consequence of wliich lie demanded Assistance and we 
Furnisiied him with seven men, with whom lie proceded against 
them and made sundrey distresses, but soon the disaffected Assem- 
bled about Forty in Number, all provided with Clubs, and resisted 
the Collecter in i)erforming his duty. He then retired from that 
place and demanded a more Sullicient Number of Assistance. We 
then applied to Col". Clerk and Col". Rogers for thirty men of their 
Battalion, which Number we expect will arrive on Monday or 
Tuesday next. 

We herewith inclose you a List of the ringleaders of said aggres- 
sors, amongst whom is Henry Sheffer, one of the Justices of tlie 
peace, who issues his Warrant for Apprehending Captain John 
Moore for returning the said Aggressors as Absentees, agreeable to 
Law. We beg leave to be informed how to proceed against them, 
wiietlier they are to be prosecuted agreeable to the civel Law or the 
Military, as they deserve exemjilary punisliment. 

As Ammunition is higiily essential at tliis i)lace, we have given 
Col". Crrubb an order on the Commissary of Military Stores in Lan- 
caster for 

If the Commissary should refuse to deliver it upon s'. order, then 
you will please to take such measures to obtain tlie same as you 
shall think proper. We cannot sufliciently Express our sorrow and 
anxiety on this occasion, as we was informed that tlie Aggressors 
■were all on horseback last nigiit to pursue the Collecter in order to 
make an Assault. We are intended to bring tliis Controversje to an 
end with all jiossible Dispatch, let the consequence thereof be what- 
ever tliey will, but foju- it will end with Tragedy, wliieh is a matter 
that workes daily & Hourly upon our minds. We greatly depend

WILLIAM ATLEE TO ilEXRY MILLER. 



Lancaster, ye 2Dth March, i7Sh 

Sir: I have just now received the enclosed Letter & Warrant 
from the Chief Justice with a request to forward it to you by Ex- 
press. 

lie writes me that tliey have a Letter from Governor Jefferson 
informing tliat Gen. Green witli 4,000, cliietiy militia, has had an 
encasement witli Lord Cornwallis and about 12.500 regulars, about 
a mile and a half from Guilford Court House, on Thursday the loth 
instant. The action continued an hour & a half, & was very bloody. 
General Green tliought proper to retire about <i mile & a half in 
good order. & Cornwallis was so crippled that he did not attempt 
to follow. The engagement would have been renewed the next 
day, but it proved rainy, & Captain Singleton who was in the action 
iS: brought the intelligence frcm camp to Governor Jefferson, then 
came away; he supposes there must liave been another action as 
soon as the weather cleared up, as Gen'l Green's army were 
in high spirits and resolved upon it again. It is conjectured (the 
returns not being made) that we have had about 300 killed & 
wounded, among the former, M.ijor Anderson & Captain Barrett 
nf the Maryland Line; and among the latter. General Stevens, 
shot in tlie thigh <& brouglit off, & Captain Fontleroy, shot ;ilso in 
the thigh & left on the field. The enemy are said to have between 
500 & 700 killed & wounded. 

Also, that on the same a battle was fought between the French 
and British fleets near the Capes of Virginia ; it continued an liour 
& 45 minutes. The British were considerably superior in number 
A: force, having 12 ships to 9, and tiie consequence was tliat the 
British got into Chesapeak & the French returned to Illiode Island, 
without a vessel being taken or lost on either side. 

You will oblige me if you will mention to Mr. Zacliary Shugart 
of your town, tliat I shou'd be very glad to see him liere, if he cou'd 
make it suit him to take a ride this far, — tiie Council having re- 
quested me to make some inquiry of him respecting some transac- 
tions of some of our people while on Long Island. 

Please my compliments to Col. Hartley & your Family.

If wiien she arrives iu Pliihid''. she should be able to learn where

in that way as you may with projiriety. 

The poor woman is much distressed. We have endeavoured to 
prevail with her to stay here, where she has two Children yet re-

COL. ADAM IIUBLEY TO PRESIDENT MOORE. 



Lancaster, November 20'", 17S1. 

Sir : Inclosed, I transmit your Excellency, the Proceedings of a 
general Court-martial, with other papers, held for the Trial of sun- 
drey Prisoners of the Militia on duty at this place, for your Excel- 
lency's perusal & orders thereupon. 

Your Excellency will observe, that Stephen Long & James Dick, 
Two of the Prisoners are recommended for a Pardon. Circum- 
stances, in my opinion justify tiie lenity of tlie Court, and I would 
beg to add (& jiarticularly as I am requested by some of the members 
of y" Court) your Excellency's mercy should also be extended to 
the otiier two Prisoners, viz: George Leniiare & Titrich Row. 
The whole behaviour of those lads proceeded (as it now clearly ap- 
pears to me) from ignorance & a culpable conduct of some of the 
oflicers. 

Mr. Ilambright has requested, I would mention his situation to 
your Excellency & Council, his situation with respect to the Bar- 
racks at this place. Notwithstanding his frequent applications to 



550 ASSOCIATED BATTALIONS 

the Board of War, »S:c., for money to keep them in proper order, he 
has not been furnished witii a six pence, nor can lie pmcure on the 
Credit of the public even a person to sweep the Chimneys. The 
Barracks at several times, for wdut of sweei)ing has taken file, and 
unless he is enabled to keei) the chimneys clean, I fear some acci- 
dent will in the course of this winter take place. As the Prisoners 
are not the most careful peoi)le, nor would they care anything if 
they burned to the ground. 

From those circumstances, your Excellency & Council will pro- 
bably judge it necessary to gis'e some orders, and enable the Bar- 
rack-master to have them put and kent in order. Some other 
necessary repairs are also wanting, which Council will likewise 
please to consider. 

I wrote your Excellency, some time hence, res])ecting Cartridge- 
boxes now in the Possession of Mr. Henry. I would beg to remind 
your Excellency thereof. 

I have the Honor to be with every respect.
