ALPHABETICAL LIST 



or 



REVOLUTIONARY SOLDIERS. 



1775-1783. 



[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 lAne, 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 we enjoy.]

owing to the difference in the orthography of surnames. It was

ASSOCIATORS AND MILITIA

Passed by the Committee of Safety, August 19, 1775. 

|E, the officers and soldiers, engaged in the present asso- 
ciation for the defense of American liberty, being fully 
sensible that the strength and security of any body of 
men, acting together, consists in just regularity, due 
subordination, and exact obedience to command, without which no 
individual can have that confidence in the support of those about 
him, that is so necessary to give firmness and resolution to the 
whole, do voluntarily and freely, after consideration of the follow- 
ing articles, adopt the same as the rules by which we agree and re- 
solve to be governed in all our military concerns and operations, 
until the same, or any of them, shall be changed or dissolved by the 
Assembly, or Provincial Convention, or in their recess by the Com- 
mittee of Safety, or a happy reconciliation shall take place between 
Great Britain and the Colonies. 

1st. If any officer make use of any profane oath or execration, 
when on duty, he shall forfeit and pay, for each and every such of- 
fence, the sum of five shillings. And if a non-commissioned officer 
or soldier be thus guilty of cursing or swearing, he shall forfeit and 
pay, for each and every such offence, the sum of one shilling. 

2d. Any officer or soldier who shall refuse to obey the lawful or- 
ders of his superior officer, may be suspended from doing duty on 
that day, and shall upon being convicted thereof before a regimental 
court martial, make such concessions as said court martial shall 
direct. 

3d. Any officer or soldier who shall begin, excite, cause, join in, 
or promote any disturbance in the battalion, troop, or company, to 
which he belongs, or in any other battalion, troop, or company, 
shall be censured according to the nature of the offence, by the judg- 
ment of a regimental court martial. 

4th. Any officer or soldier who shall strike his superior officer, or 
draw or offer to draw, or shall lift up any weapon, or offer any vio- 
lence against him, being in the execution of his office, shall, upon 
conviction before a regimental court martial, be dismissed, and 
shall be deemed to be thereby disgraced as unworthy the company 
of freemen. 

6th. Any commanding or other officer who shall strike any per- 
tfon when on duty, shall, upon conviction before a general court 
martial, be in like manner dismissed and disgraced. 

(253)

any other battalion, who is to summon a general court martial, and 
see that justice be done. 

8th. If any inferior officer or soldier shall think himself injured 
by his captain, or other superior officer in the battalion, troop, or

martial, for the doing justice according to the nature.of the case.

other rendezvous appointed by the commanding officer, if not pre- 
vented by sickness or some other evident necessity, or shall go from 
the place of parade without leave from the commanding officer be- 
fore he shall be regularly dismissed, on penalty of being fined or 
censured according to the nature of the offence, by the sentence of 
a regimental court martial. But no officer or soldier shall be 
obliged to attend to learn the military exercise more than once in 
a week. 

10th. Any officer or soldier found drunk when under arms, shall

victed at a regimental court martial of having sold, carelessly lost,

AND MILITIA OP THE REVOLUTION. 259 

ADDRESS OF THE COMMITTEE OF CONFERENCE 

To the Asseciators of Pennsylvania, June 25, 1776. 

GENTLEMEN : The only design of our meeting together was to 
>ut an end to our own power in the Province by fixing upon a plan 
for calling a convention 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 4,500 of the militia of the Province to 
join the militia of the 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 you 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, therefore, by the respect and obedience which 
are due to the authority of the United Colonies, to concur in this 
important measure. The present campaign will probably decide 
the 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 reproach us and 
blush to own themselves natives. or inhabitants of Pennsylvania. 
But there are other motives before you your houses, your fields, 
t lie 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 the publication of the resolves of the Committee of 
Correspondence for the 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 Itoss, Esq., in the chair. 

This assembly, taking into their 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. That the acts of the British Parliament for divesting us of 
such right, and assuming such power 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 procure 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 ot 
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 with 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 subscription be opened for the relief of our suffering 
brethren there. 

18- VOL. XIII. 



274 ASSOCIATED BATTALIONS 

10. That the subscription be put into the hands of the committee 
of this county, to be by them laid out in the purchase of provisions 
and sent to Boston towards the relief of their distresses. 

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

ames Webb, Matthias Slough, Joseph Ferree, Emariuel Carpenter, 
and William Atlee, Esquires, Mr. Alexander Lowry,and Mr. Moses 
Erwin be the committee to meet and consult with the committees 
of the 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 then moved that the thanks of the freemen and inhabi- 
tants present should 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. 

EBEUHART 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 subscribed 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 this county, which 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 the 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 Paxtang and Derry, 
at their meeting at the town of Middletown, on the 8th last past, 
and signed by James Burd, Esq., chairman.

MINUTES OF THE COMMITTEE OF 
OBSERVATION. 

[The full proceedings of the Committee of Observation for the

sent cannot be found. We give, however, such extracts therefrom 
as have come into our possession.] 



PROCEEDINGS. 

LANCASTER, June 15, 1774. 

In pursuance of a letter written by Mr. Charles Thompson, and 
sent to the inhabitants of this borough, directed to the care of Mr. 
William Atlee, a meeting was held on the 15th day of June, 1774, 
and the following resolves were agreed on, viz : 

At a meeting of the inhabitants of the borough of Lancaster, at 
the court house in the said borough, on Wednesday, the 15th day 
of June, 1774: Agreed that to preserve the constitutional rights 
of the inhabitants 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 rights of the inhabitants of the said 
town, as subjects of the crown of Great Britain. That it is the 
opinion of the inhabitants at this meeting that the proper and ef- 
fectual means to be used to obtain a repeal of the said act, will be 
to put an immediate stop to all imports and exports, to and from 
Great Britain, until the same act be repealed. 

That the traders and inhabitants of this town will join and con- 
cur with the patriotic merchants, tradesmen, and freeholders of 
the 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., Matthias Slough, Esq., James Webb, Esq., William Atlee, 
Esq., William Henry, Esq., Mr. Ludwig Laurnan, Mr. William 
Bausman, and Mr. Charles Hall be a committee to correspond with 
the general committee of Philadelphia; that these sentiments be 
immediately forwarded to the Committee of Correspondence at 
Philadelphia. 

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



276 ASSOCIATED BATTALIONS 

to be transmitted to the committee of Philadelphia, directed to Mr. 
Charles Thompson, and is as follows, viz : 

LANCASTER, the 25th June, 1774. 

SIR: Agreeable to the request of the Committee of Correspond- 
ence for the city of Philadelphia, signified to some of the Inhabi- 
tants 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 expeditiousLy done by having a general Meet- 
ing of the Inhabitants, we thought best to give you those of the 
Town, and have the pleasure 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 the General Interest. 

We are, &c.,

clerk of the committee at Philadelphia, with a copy of this letter, 
signed by him. 



At a meeting of the Committee of Correspondence, appointed for 
the borough of Lancaster, the 2d of July, 1774, Edward Shippen,

Honorable Thomas Willing, Esq.

this county with the utmost expedition, to choose a committee to 



AND MILITIA OF THE REVOLUTION. 277 

join with the committees of the other counties of this Province to 
meet at Philadelphia for the very great and useful purposes men. 
tioned in the said resolves and circular letters; therefore, 

Resolved, That the freemen and inhabitants of this county be re-

o'clock in the afternoon, at the court house in Lancaster, for the 
purpose aforesaid. 

N. B. The said resolves of the committee at this meeting, being 1

The following are the resolves and circular letter referred to in 
the foregoing resolutions : 

" PHILADELPHIA,' June, 277^. 

"At a very large and respectable meeting of the freeholders and 
freemen of the city and county of Philadelphia, on Saturday, June 
18, 1774, Thomas Willing and John Dickinson* Esqrs., chairmen. 

" I. Itesolved, 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 suffering in 
the common cause of America. 

"II. That a Congress of Deputies frdm the several Colonies in 
North America is the most probable and proper mode of procuring 
relief for our suffering brethren, obtaining redress of American 
grievances, securing our rights and liberties, and reestablishing 
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 proper 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 the 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 Billtlie money arising from such subscriptions to be laid out 
as the committee shall think will best answer the ends proposed. 

"VI. That the committee consist of forty-three persons, viz: 
John Dickinson, Edward Penuington, John Nixon, Thomas 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,) Thomas 
Eitzsimmons, George Roberts, Samuel Ervin, Thomas Mifflin, John 
Cox, George Gray, Robert Morris, Samuel Miles, John M. Nesbit, 
Peter Chevalier, Wm. Moulder, Joseph Moulder, Anthony Morris, 
junr., John Allen, Jeremiah 'Warder, juur., 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 Christopher Ludwick. And after the 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 : 

u 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 necessary 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 which, in our better days, 
Great Britain and her colonies derived mutual strength 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 such as these are agitated before us, everything 
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 hasty 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 arid experience of the aged, the strength 
of mind and vigor of those who are in their prime of life, and, in 
short, the united wisdom and efforts of all. both high and low. 



AND MILITIA OF THE REVOLUTION. 279 

joining hand in hand, and setting foot to foot, upon the firm ground 
of reason and the 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 vote 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 that if, on any 
point, we should have a difference of sentiments, every person may 
be allowed to speak his mind freely, and to conclude what he has to 
offer, without any sucli outward marks of approbation or disappro- 
bation as clapping or hissing, and that if a division should be nec- 
essary, (which it is hoped may not be the case this day,) such divi- 
sion may be made in the manner desired by the chairman, with all 
possible order and decorum. 

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

" PHILADELPHIA, June 28, 1774. 

41 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 l ' To determine on the most proper mode of collecting 
the sense of this Province in the present critical situation of our 
affairs, and appointing Deputies to attend the proposed Congress." 
In pursuance of this trust, we have, upon the maturest delibera- 
tion, determined upon the mode contained in the two following pro- 
positions, which we hope may meet with the approbation and con- 
currence of your respectable county, viz: 

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

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



280 ASSOCIATED BATTALIONS 

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

u 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 such matters as may be proper to recommend to our Represen- 
tatives at their meeting the Monday following. 

"We trust 110 apology is necessary for the trouble we propose 1 
giving your committee, of attending at Philadelphia ; as we art 
.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 Province, in one place, 
preparatory to the general Congress. 

u 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 N". Hampshire, seem animated with one spirit in the 
common cause, and consider this as the proper crisis for having our 
differences with the 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 favoured 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, Chairman.' 11

LANCASTER, September 9, 1774. 

At a meeting of the committee of the county of Lancaster, at 
Lancaster, on the 9th September, 1774, Edward Shippen, Esq., in 
the chair. 

The subscriptions received for the relief of the distresses of the 
poor inhabitants of the town of Boston, were laid before the com- 
mittee, and it appeareth that the 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 should not be immediately 
remitted to Philadelphia to Mr. John Nixon, the Treasurer of the 
city and county of Philadelphia, to be laid out in such manner as 
the committee for the 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 this time no proper account could possibly be had of the sub- 
scription papers of the several townships in this county. 

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

PHILADELPHIA, June 29, 1774. 

44 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 other 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 SMITH. 
Your assured friend, 

ISAAC HOWELL." 

To Edward Shippen and George Ross, 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 9th 
of July last, attended the provincial convention at Philadelphia, on 
Monday, the 15th then next. And the 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 llth, 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 their immediate attendance. In 
consequence t hereof, one of the partners called on the committee, 
but denied their having 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 shop, and 
with some difficulty learned of a chest of Bohea tea, weight 349, 
neat weight, which they had bought from a certain merchant in Phi- 
ladelphia. The committee, taking an account of all the marks of 
the case in which it was packed, removed the 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 the Custom House and was afterwards purchased 
at a public sale by the original owner of it, as by a letter from the 
committee of Philadelphia, dated August 25th, 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 held 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, 
and 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 the British 
American Colonies, and petition to the King. 



November 22, 1774. 

The committee of this borough met and the following hand-bill 
by them ordered to be printed, and sent to, and put up at all the 
public places in this county, viz : 

To the freeholders and electors of the county of Lancaster: 

The committee for the borough of Lancaster, taking in their con- 
sideration the resolves and recommendations of the American Con- 
tinental Congress, request that the freeholders and others qualified

ter, would meet at the court house in Lancaster, on Thursday, the 
fifteenth day of December next, to choose by ballot sixty proper

touching the general Association of the general Congress ; which 
committee, it is proposed, when elected, shall divide the county 
into different districts, and appoint members of the committee to 
superintend each district, and any six of the members so appointed 
for a district to be a quorum for transacting business.

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 their 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 Mr. Francis , opening and keeping a dancing school 

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

Signed by the members above named.

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

%i That it be recommended to the county committees to meet in 
said convention, on Monday, the 23d day of January next, in the 
city of Philadelphia. 

" From a view of the present situation of public affairs, the com- 
mittee have been induced to propose this convention that the sense 
of the Province may be obtained ; and that the measures to be 
taken thereupon, may be the result of the united wisdom of the 
Colony. 

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

ing a provincial convention, to be held at Philadelphia, the 22d in-

kl When we consider that our disputes are drawing fast to a crisis, 
and that the most cordial unanimity is absolutely necessary for our

upon knowing of the said tea being sold, immediately disapproved 
of the sale thereof. And Mr. Hamilton, himself, upon oath, de- 
claring that ever since the first of March, instant, his orders in the

It appearing by intelligence from divers places and by the papers, 
that General Gage hath at length attacked the inhabitants of Mas-

British Parliament, calculated to deprive the inhabitants of the 
Colonies of their inestimable rights and privileges, and that a for- 
midable fleet and army are preparing to invade the Colonies or some 
of them ; it is therefore thought proper to request a general meet- 
ing of the committee for this county, to consult and determine upon 
such measures as may be necessary to be pursued at this alarming

Upon motion, 

Resolved, That it is the unanimous opinion of this committee, 
that it be most heartily recommended to the inhabitants of the 
county of Lancaster, immediately to associate and provide them- 
selves with arms and ammunition, and learn the art of military dis- 
cipline, to enable them to support and defend their just rights and 
privileges against all arbitrary and despotic invasions by any person 
or persons whatsoever. 

The following Association was then proposed, and being read 
paragraph by paragraph, was unanimously agreed to by the commit- 
tee, and follows in these words, to wit : 

Tlie Association of the Freemen and Inhabitants of ( township} 

the county of Lancaster. 

WHEREAS, The enemies of. Great Britain and America, have re- 
solved by force of arms, to carry into execution the most unjust, 
tyrannical, and cruel edicts of the British Parliament, and reduce 
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 have the power of appointing the other officers -un- 
der them necessary for the companies. 

That when the companies are formed, and the officers chosen and 
appointed, an association shall be signed by the officers and soldiers 
of each company for the good order and government of the officers 
and soldiers.

AND MILITIA OF THE REVOLUTION. 297 

their reasons to this committee, why they have not set about mak- 
ing the arms directed by the honorable 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 
unanimously carried in the affirmative, and the gun-smiths were 
sent for accordingly. 

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 
Zericher be allowed five pounds of powder, and no more, out of the 
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 dra'ft 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 9tli,1775. 

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 troops raised by -the Province in the late war were dis- 
banded, a number of muskets and military accoutrements were 
lodged at a Mr. Carson 'sin 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 the public expense, and put into the hands of such asso- 
ciators as were unable to furnish themselves, and who were to give 
receipts for them to be returned, Tf 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 the provincial muskets, 



298 ASSOCIATED BATTALIONS 

were beforehand with 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 them 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 they 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 the poor people 
under such circumstances would greatly damp their martial spirit. 

We conceive it our duty to mention these things to the Commit- 
tee of Safety. If that 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. 

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. 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 19th 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. 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 permitted to visit him but 
in the presence 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.

FRIDAY, November 10th, 1775. 

The committee met according to adjournment. 

Present : The same members who attended yesterday, and more- 
over Joseph Lytle for Rapho township. 

Upon motion, 

Resolved, That in case any of the gun-smiths, in the county of 
Lancaster, upon application made to them by the members of the 
committees of the respective townships to which they belong, shall 
refuse to go to work and make their proportion of the firelocks and 
bayonets required of this county, by the honorable House of As- 
sembly, within two weeks from such application agreeable to the 
patterns, at the Philadelphia 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 betaken 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. 

Audit 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, the 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 possibly complete in 
the time, and deliver the same to the commissioners of the county 
or this committee. 

Michael Withers appeared in committee, and agreed to set to 
work as soon as he hath completed a few guns which he 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 
and his workmen to that work and carry on the same as expedi- 
tiously as he can, and that he will deliver in to the commissioners 
and assessors of this county or to this committee as many muskets. 

[Here the minutes of the Committee of Correspondence abruptly 
terminates. It is supposed that they were in possession of Jasper 
Yeates, chairman of the committee.]

MARCHING ORDERS, 1777, 1778, 1779. 

PRESIDENT WHARTON TO COL. GALBRAITH. 



PHILADELPHIA, April 25 th , 1777. 

SIR : Agreeable to the enclosed resolve of Congress, and with the 
Advice of the Board of War, I have determined that the Counties 
of Philadelphia, Bucks, Cumberland, Berks, and Northampton, 
send their Proportion of Militia to Bristol, to form a Camp at or 
near that Borough The Counties of Chester, Lancaster, and 
York, to form a Camp at or near Chester. 

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

You are to procure by purchase or otherwise a Blanket for each 
Man (which is to remain the property of the State,) money will be 
sent you for this purpose. If they cannot be procured by purchase 
they must be impressed by their value paid, this is to be done in a 
way that will give the least offence. 

You are to exert yourself to the utmost to Comply with this 
Order with all possible 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, 

THO. WHARTON, JR, Pre". 
To BARTREMGALBRAITH,ESQ, 

Lieutenant of the County of Lancaster.

SIR : Annexed hereunder you have the President's requisition for 
Six Hundred men from this County, the Irregular order that re- 
turns have been made in, Prevents me from calling on you for your 
exact Quoto of men. I desire that as soon as your Companies which 



474 ASSOCIATED BATTALIONS 

form your Battalion have drawn their rank, that you furnish one- 
full Company agreeable to the Militia Act, on the President's re- 
quisition without delay. Nessesaries that are wanting, you see wi^ 
be answered. 

In haste I am your Humble Serv',

COL. JOSHUA ELDER TO COL. ROGERS. 



PAXTANG, 11 th May, 1777. 

DEAR SIR : Yours I rec d 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, who seem chiefly all to stand aloof, three 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 that were offered. I have promised my attend- 
ance in one of these Companies to-Morrow ; as to the Dispute about 
pay, I think if they would have the least Consideration, might be 
soon removed, it might answer well enough to draw out a few men 
when there was no compulsion nor Law to put every Man on an 
equal 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 would condescend to that Plan, it would be in vain for 
one Company to pretend to it, except they would think themselves 
wiser law-makers than 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. Galbraith last Night Desiring I would give you Word to 
bring the Report of your Battalion, Companies, Rank, and Draughts 
to him at Lancaster next Wednesday, and draw for Rank with the 
other Colonels. 

In haste I am your H'ble Servant, 

JOSHUA ELDER.

March to Chester on the Delaware, I Desire that such who fall 
into that Draught, and Conscienciously scruple the bearing of Arms, 
may be reported to me by you, or your Order Immediately, that I 
may find Substitutes in their Room and Stead, and at the same Time

not to spare the least pains to dispatch your Classes, & if you feel 
the Loss & Trouble of it now, I hope you'll find the Honor & Bene-

strong & Potter of the 14 th at night, requesting the March of the 
Militia, and giving me information of General How's Army rapidly 
Marching thro the Jerseys, being at Rockey run 5 Miles from Prince, 
ton on Saturday last, Do order you, with all expedition to get in 
readiness (agreeable to former orders) the first Class of your Militia 
to March to Chester on Dele ware, and notify the Second Class to 
hold themselves in readyness to March at a Moment's warning. 
You must agree with Substitutes in the room of those who deny 
Marching, (notwithstanding my Publication) at such rates as you 
can, with the advice of the nearest Sub-Lieutenant who's agree- 
ment shall be Confirmed by me and at the same time take Care that 
no Substitutes are taken out of the Second Class for the first. The

set & Brunswick to Amboy & Staten Island, yet at the Same time 
to hold in readiness at a moment's warning, as no doubt they may 
be soon called, Should How attempt our Capes. I have wrote to 
the President & expect in a few days his answer, when you'll re- 
ceive Particular orders from me. Continue Such Substitutes as are 
already provided for the protection of the civil Authority, but re- 
commend to the Majistrates to proceed only to collecting of the 
fines for days of exercise, for a few days, until the President's An- 
swer comes to hand. I have sent a few Notices amongst you which 
I expect you'll Observe. When I was in your Country our people 
had a brush with a number of riotors in which one of our people 
was killed by the Stroak of the Coulter of a Plough & three of the 
others wounded, which I hope will be the means of putting a Stopp 
to other Insurrections of the like kind.

SIR : Yours of yesterday came to hand by Captain Hay, which 
Surprises me no little, to find that uneasiness should be now arris- 
ing amongst you, at the very time it ought not to subsist. 

By Capt. Hay I have sent you the rules by which the Continental 



478 ASSOCIATED BATTALIONS 

Armey is governed, to which every Officer & Soldier now with you 
is subject (or ought to be) which you'l cause to be read at the Head 
of the Company for their Instruction as to that of their duty, that 
should they offend, or goe out of the line of duty it may not be un- 
known to them, as I'm determined if in my power to preserve good 
order. You will call or appoint the men to meet twice a week at 
your house or elsewhere as you shall see meet, to receive their far- 
ther Instructions which shall be handed you from me, as the exi- 
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 teeth. As the President has put it in my power to continue 
the guard at my pleasure, I do think proper to continue the Substi- 
tutes until the civil authority has no further demand for us ; it's not 
the business of this, that, or the other Class, how the present Class, 
serves their tower of duty or yet the people for whom they are Im- 
ployed ; as the house of Assembly has appointed me the drudge in 
that respect, for those very mute good People, & have boren the 
burthen for them, I'm also determined that they shall give me a 
Liberty to Judge for them, so that if they make use of Language 
let it be amongst themselves, as I hope ever to be able to act agree- 
able to my duty without Partiality to Persons while in my present 
station. I hope the Substitutes will behave themselves becoming 
men of candour and probity. I'm their mark for their wages. 
In haste, yours &c.,

SIR: In Consequence of the President's alarming Intelligence to 
me rec d late last night, of the enemy's near approach to our Metropo-

Honour & Love of your Country, as freemen, determined to de- 
fend & protect your enestimable & just Rights & Privileges, to 
march without Loss of time the First, Second & Third Class of your 
Battalion to Chester on Delaware, every man provided with a Blan- 
ket, and Arm as many as within the Bounds of your to call for 
your People, agreeable to the President's letter of the 28 th . You see 
that, that of the 31 st call, for all such who value the freedom of their 
Country to turn out as Voulentiers, which I hope will be sufficient 
to Induce every good man without my further Arguments, & hope 
that the forwardness of your Battalion in this respect will crown 
them with honour in a future day. I have sent you coppies of the 
President's letters which will the better enable you to proceed in 
this Business, & to which I hope you'll conform. Provide Waggons 
for your Baggage with whom I will Settle & Pay. I need not use 
further Arguments with you, as our Hearvists are in ; now or never 
is the day that the Love of our Country will appear in us, & rest, 
yours with best wishes for the most Generous Sentiments of your

the mode on which they have proceeded in their task is unpreci- 
dented, but yet at the same time it is out of my power to Publish 
another Election for them, but it is yours ; as you have not as yet 
made a general return to me of your Battalion, it is in your Power 
to accomodate small differences of that kind before you make such 



480 ASSOCIATED BATTALIONS 

return to me. The above is what I would recomend to you in the 
present matter immediately, for should I notice them on such an 
occation, I might do nothing else through the county. 

You ought to give the officers of each Draught as they march 
their orders, until they meet their Commanding Officer ; to draw 
rations from the Commissarys of the Continent until they arive at 
camp &c a , take every means to please your people, that you can 
consistant with the Law.

DONEGAL, August 10 th , 2777. 

Sin : Having the opportunity of M r . Barnet am to let you know 
that you ought to desire your people to provide their own rations 
until they arrive to Lancaster, as the publick Houses are entirely 
run out of Provisions & they are not to be had for money, so that 
the people who march will be disapointed unless they provide them- 
selves ; it's a matter that will be easiely don as their Baggage Wag- 
gons to come along. Sir this you'l take particular care of.

peek-Bay, & are landing their Troops above Baltimore he orders 
me to have the Militia in my District in Readiness to March in a 
Moment's Warning with such Arms as can be procured, those who 
have no Arms must march without them & will be supplied at Lan^ 
caster, he does not mention any particular Number of Classes but 
seems to Intimate the whole of the Militia. Now as your Battalion 
has always been understood to be in that District I expect -you'll 
PMV particular attention to the above orders & have your Battalion 
duly Notified & in the utmost Readiness until further orders He

& M r . Atlee likewise Inform me that it is the orders of the Board 
of War to have the 1'risoners removed from Lancaster to Reading 
& Lebanon. You'll therefore have all the Hessian Prisoners (& 
others if any) in y r Battalion Collected as soon as may be & sent to 
Lebanon under a proper Guard where Mess". Ort, C. Grub & Thorn 
will Receive them & take Charge of them, you'll take Care to keep 
a List of the Prisoners & let the officer of the Guard take these Gen- 
tlemen's Rec 4 for them & how many when Delivered & forward the 
List to me. I imagin the Prisoners, if any in your Bounds, are 
Chiefly among the Menonists, which will require you to be very 
particular in Collecting them as no Doubt many of them will En- 
deavour to Conceal them if possible.

SIR : General Washington hath written to the Council in the Most 
pressing terms, for a more effectual Aid of men <fc arms than has. 
hitherto been afforded him ; expressing his great surprise to see 
the good people of this Commonwealth so backward to take the field 
in their own defence. In concequence of which the Council lias- 
called on me for the Sixth & Seventh Class of the Militia from this 
County to March Immediately to Camp, equipped each man with a 
Blanket & what Arms can posably be collected let them belong tu 
whom they .will. This you 1 ! please to take notice of & perform with 
prudence & care agreeable to former orders given you by me. Pro- 
vided the above class's do not turn out as they ought, I'm also Au- 
thorized to call out the next two Succeeding Class's & march them 
to Camp. 

I could wish that you would recomend to your People to lay'aside 
every little tho 1 of offending their Neighbors by being Active in 
turning them out in their Class's; if they do not, the concequence 
is, that the burthen delinquents ought to bear, Must be heaped on 
our own Shoulders ; a glaring instance of this you have in the twa 



AND MILITIA OF THE REVOLUTION. 488 

last Class's called for here, which must be the Eighth & first. Let 
us then follow the example of the Eastern Militia <te Serve How & 
his Armey, as they have Burgoyne & his under General Gates, which 
if we turn out is in our power positively, unless kind Providence 
has otherwise determined. Council also requests me to Invite all 
who will turn out as volunteers, that their Services will be thank- 
fully rec' 1 and recompenced ; and that the Same time those who have 
heretofore omitted going in their respective Class's, that will now 
turn out, their Services will be rec' 1 as a full Compensation for their 
former neglect. Here I leave you, with my sincere wishes that the 
Spirits of your People may be so Animated on the late Success of our 
American Arms, (beyond everything to be looked for) that they 
will turn out to a Man, as called for, & wipe away the Stigma now 
at our doors.

NOTICE OF APPEAL. 



June 6 th , 1778. 

Publick Notice is once more given the Inhabitants of Col. Rogers' 
Battalion, that Tuesday, the 16 th Ins 1 , is appointed for an Appeal 
to be held at John Thompson's, in Hanover Township, for such 
who are agrieved by the present Militia Law. It's hoped that At- 
tendance will be given, as this will be the last opportunity of the 
kind for the Delinquents of last year.

COL. JOSHUA ELDER TO COL. ROGERS. 



MIDDLETOWN, 16 th Jwfa/, 1778. 

SIR : In Pursuance of Orders from Col. Galbraith I must request 
you will without Loss of Time call out the 2 1 , 3 d & 4 th Classes of 
your Batt n . to march to Sunbury against the Indians, to meet at 
Garber's Mills next Tuesday where they will be supplied 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 
this 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 Monday you'll 
be good enough to send an Express to Col. Ort & Justice Green to 
attend & give the people an Opportunity of an Appeal, as I must 
attend in Paxton. I'm thus far on my Return from Philad a . & ex- 
pect the 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, the Reception of whom, & 
the reading of so many Packets & Expresses as came to hand took 
up the Congress Time so that it was not in their Power to go into 
that business before Tuesday. The Fleet took three English Battle 
Ships on their Arrival in Chesapeak Bay & our Capes & proceeded 
Immediately to New York after the Enemy. You may be asur'd 
there's warm work there before this Time. 

I am Sir y r hum 1 Serv fc ,

LANCASTER, Auyust 7'". 177S. 

SIR : Inasmuch as it appears that the Number of Militia de- 
manded from this County have not turned out to March to Sunbury 
agreeable to their late Orders, have thought proper to give them one 
other Chance before their Fines are distrained from them on Ac- 
count of their late Delinquency ; Therefore sucli who will now turn 



486 ASSOCIATED BATTALIONS 

out on a. Short Day's Notice to be by you appointed, & March to 
Sunbury as directed heretofore shall be excused their late Fines of 
this Year, for which Purpose you are to Notice the Marching Classes 
& that the People have no Complaints of not being Notified for the 
future, as the Officers, for such Neglect, may Depend upon being 
prosecuted on proper Information made.

know whither a sufficient number are ready to turn out to relieve 
the Guard as well as to report to me in time, what may be the Is- 
sue, or that others may be called elsewhere to make them up de-

DONEGAL, 10 th April, 1779. 

SIR : Some time agoe I rec d orders from the Precident to call fifty 
men of the militia to march to Bedford for the protection of the 
Inhabitants there while putting in their spring crops & until a cer- 
tain number of men can be raised who are called Rangers. I have 
called upon two Batt us & do not find a sufficient number to march, 
which reduces me to the necessity of calling on your Sixth class which 
comes nixt of course, you are to order the Sixth class of your Batt n 
to meet on Monday the 26 th at your Gen 1 place of Parade where an 
apeal by law will be held of which place you will acquaint Adam 
Qart that he may attend for that Purpose, after which you will 
cause a report to be made to me that due provision may be made 
for the Marching troops, & at the same time them a pointed to meet 
by the time you can have my answer to your report. 

I am &c a .,

Donegal, 15 th Aug\ 1777. 

SIR : Sundry returns of the Seventh Class of the Militia of this 
County having come to hand, in consequence of the late call to Sun- 
bury, I find the marching troops entirely inadequet to the number 
of men wanted, & as my orders are express to Call Class after Class 
until the number of three hund r men are Compleet, therefore the 
Eighth class of your Batt". is hereby ordered to randisvouse at John 
Dixon's on Monday the 23' J Ins 1 , where an appeal will be held as di- 
rected by law, at the Same time the marching troops of the Seventh 
Class are to be forthwith marched to Coxestown, there to be formed 
into Companies from the Several Batt ns . I do not see any other 
method that can be fallen on from the Smallness of their numbers. 
I once more exort the Officers to a faithf ull discharge of their duty, 
as they may depend no farther lenity will be Shown them for ne- 
glect or disobedience of orders. 

Sir, I'm yours, &c a .,

THE COMMITTEE'S COKKESPO^DE^CE. 

THE GENERAL COMMITTEE TO THE COMMITTEE 
OF LANCASTER. 



PHILAD% l Octob r , 1775. 

GENTLEMEN: We are informed that there are some of the Pro- 
vincial Muskets in the hands of the Military Associators and others 
of your County. The 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 with 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 unessayd 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 War 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 the necessity of applying to you with a request that 
you will call in the said Provincial arms and send them to this 
Committee with all the Expedition cSc dispatch in your power. 
Your performance of tins request will manifest your attachment 
to the generel interests of the Colony, give confidence to those that 
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.

PHIL% 10 th Ocr, 1775. 

GENTLEMEN : The Committee of Safety confiding in the zeal of 
the Inhabitants of Lancaster County, in support of those Rights 
which America is reduced to, the unhappy alternative, either of 
Sacraficeing to lawless ambition or Defending at the risque of all 
that is Valuable, have therefore determined to send to your care 



604 ASSOCIATED BATTALIONS 

under a Guard a certain I. Brookes who has been Convicted of hold- 
ing a traiterous Correspondance with some of the British Ministry, 
and of having Communicated Intelligence, that has a tendency to 
exasperate them against the Americans and provoke them to an In- 
vasion of this Colony requesting that you will keep his Person in 
safety from any acts of Violence, and see the Sentence pf this Com- 
mittee put in execution, a Copy of which you have inclosed. 

Under the same guard we have sent Doc r John Kearsley (Con- 
victed of Similar offences) who is Ordered to be Confined in York- 
Town. We request that you will appoint a Suitable Guard (to re- 
lieve those who escort him from this City) to Conduct him in Safety 
to York-Town, and Deliver him to the Care of the Committee 
there. 

A state of the Evidence exhibited against them with the nature 
of their crimes is intended shortly to be published, Copies of which 
will be transmitted to you.

THE LANCASTER COMMITTEE TO ROBERT MORRIS. 



LANCASTER, November #, 
GENTLEMEN : Your Letter of the 7 th Day of October last directed 
to the Committee of Lancaster County, respecting the Provincial 
Muskets in the Hands of the military Associators & 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 Corre- 
spondence, appointed by the late County Committee, had upon the 
Receipt of your Letter, published & dispursed 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 mention to you some Facts relative to those arms, & wait 
your further Directions. 

After the Troops raised by this Province in the late War were 
disbanded, a number of Muskets & 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 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 them & send 
them down, intending an application to the Assembly to have them 
repaired at the public expense, and put into the Hands of such As- 
sociators as were unable to furnish themselves, 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 the Provincial 
Muskets, were beforehand with us, and having the first choice took 
between sixty and seventy of the best of them, (for 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 till 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, & 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 put in such 
Impair as to serve them to exercise with. These Persons have been 
at a considerable expence in putting 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 Honourable 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 the expence of repairing them, are to be reim- 
bursed, we shall cheerfully exert ourselves to the utmost of our 
Power in calling them in and forwarding them to Pliilad' 1 . 

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. We feel very sensibly the 
Situatio.n 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 19 th 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 Gentlemen residing in & near this Town has been ap- 
pointed to see that your Sentence & Resolves respecting Brooks 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. 

JVou. 17. 1775. 

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 public 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 apply 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 Kearsley & Brooks into execution & we are Gentlemen.

LANCASTER, December the 9 th , 1775. 

GENTLEMEN : After the repeated intercessions of 1. Brooks, the 
Prisoner sent to this Goal by the Committee of Safety, that lie 
might be permitted to write to some Friend in England, relative to 
his private affairs there, and that he might be indulged with inclos- 
ing that Letter to Coll . Roberdeau. The Committee here have ven- 
tured to indulge him, and forward the inclosed Letters, (which have 
been wrote by him in the presence of some Members of this Commit- 
tee)open, for the perusal & Consideration of the Committee of Safety, 
who will either suppress or forward them as they shall think proper. 

This Committee have gratified him thus far (altho' it seems con- 
trary to the directions of the Committee of Safety) in hopes that lie 
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 have 
done amiss hope to be excused. Great care hath been taken that 
no Pen, Ink or Paper hath been used by hi'ni except that made use 
of in writing these Letters, and in every other respect the Commit- 
tee may be assured that their directions as to him have been punc- 
tually observed.

COL. SLOUGH TO ROBERT MORRIS. 



LANCASTER, Dec. 30 th 1775. 

DEAR SIR : It is with great reluctance I now take the Liberty to 
beg your attention, well Knowing that every moment of your Time 
is taken up in the Service of your Country, But Justice to the 
bearer Captain Samuel Atle will not permit me to be Silent. He 
waits upon the Committee of Safety of this Province for their Re- 
commendation to the Honourable the Congress to the Command of 
one of the Battalions now to be raised. 

I have the Pleasure of a long acquaintance with him and am 
Realy at a loss for Words to express my regard for him. He is a 
gentleman universally Esteemed by his acquaintances & Neighbors 
a very warm Friend to the American Cause, and as to his Knowl-. 
edge in the Military Arrangement, I am Convinced there are few in 
the Province who Excell him. Colonel Miles is well acquainted 
with him and his abilities in this Department, they having Served 
in the same Regiment in the Service of this Province for several 
years during the last War, to whom referr you on this head. And 
should Cap 1 . Atle be so happy as to merrit the Recommendation of 
the Committee of Safety I have not the most remote doubt but he 
will Do Honour to the appointment. 

Hope you will pardon me for Taking up so much of your Time ; if 
Consistant with your Judgement favour Cap 1 . Atle with your Friend- 
ship and believe me, 

Dear Sir, your most Humble Servant, 

MATTHIAS SLOUGH.

PHILADELPHIA, January 12 th , 1776, 

GENTS : The Committee of Safety have published a process for the 
making of Saltpeter, which they hope will induce the Inhabitants 
of the Colony generally to set about the Work, but as no Description 
however exact can so fully answer the purpose of Instruction as an 
actual Exhibition of the Process the Committee have resolved to 
employ a Number of Persons to go through the County to instruct 
the People in this Necessary Branch of Manufacture. It is there- 
fore requested of you to send two Persons to this City to obtain a 
competent Knowledge of the Method practiced at the Saltpeter 
Work here, that they may be qualified to exhibit. the Process to 
such Inhabitants of your County as are desirous of being useful to 
their Country at this important and dangerous Crisis of our Affairs. 
It is referred to you to make such agreement for the publick with 
the persons you employ on this Service as you may think just and 
reasonable. Their expenses to and from the City and while they 
remain here for Instruction will be also allowed by the Committee 
of Safety. 



THE LANCASTER COMMITTEE TO THE GENERAL 
COMMITTEE. 

IN COMMITTEE, LANCASTER, January the 29 th , 1776. 
GENTLEMEN : The Committee have your two favours of the 10 lh 
instant, and agreeable to your request have appointed Doctor Fred- 
rick Kuhn of the Borough of Lancaster to receive, for the publick 
Use, the Salt-Petre which shall be made in this County and as they 
have notified their appointment to him, he is ready to receive 'the 
Orders of the Committee of Safety as their Officer for this purpose. 
We have also given publick Notice (by Hand Bills) to the Inhabi- 
tants of this County of this appointment and at the same time have 
mentioned our being ready to receive the proposals of any Persons 
who shall be willing to go from this County to the Salt-Petre Works 
in Philadelphia for instruction, that they may be qualified to ex- 
hibit the process to such Inhabitants of the County as are desirous 
of engaging in that necessary work. Should any Persons offer, or 
should we have knowledge of any who are willing & proper to be 
employed in this Service, we shall give them every encouragement 
& forward them to Philadelphia agreeable to your directions. 



510 ASSOCIATED BATTALIONS 

We observe by the Orders to the Officers recruiting here for the 
Continental Army that they are ait liberty to take all able bodied 
Men between 16 & 50, bought 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 Gunsmiths busily em- 
ployed in finishing the Arms required to be furnished by this County 
and the 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. We have prevailed upon Cap 1 . Hubley to 
permit the Gunsmiths' Apprentices whom he had inlisted to return 
& work with their 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. The 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 therefore 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 procure 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 theSenti' 
nients of the Congress or Committee of Safety shall be known to 
us) we have 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 two of them who were in- 
listed by Cap'. Watson, wherein the inlistments were actually signed 
before we knew of it. These Men we directed to go with Cap 1 . Wat- 
son on the recruiting Service, & at the same time promised their 
former Cap 1 . (Kinnear of the 7 th Reg 1 , 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 their 
Sentiments as to the propriety of such inlistments, according to 
which we shall govern ourselves.

LANCASTER, March '*, 1776. 
To the Honorable the Committee of Safety : 

GENTLEMEN: Agreeable to your request of the 12 th January, 
1776, We the Commissioners of Lancaster County, have to inform 
you that there is 200 of the Guns finished, 300 Bayonet, & the whole 
of the Cartridge Boxes. For want of suitable Linen, we have got 
no Knapsacks, yet hope to get them ready against the other arms 
are compleated. Our workmen asures us the remainder will be 
done in a short time. Some of the Gunsmiths having made a con- 
siderable number of Musquets, are very solicitous for their Money, 
and most of our Sadlers being men of low circumstances occasions 
them to be equally importunate, hope if convenient you would or- 
der some money to be paid the bearer M r . W". Bailsman, to which 
please to add the amount of the within account. 
We are, Gentlemen,

IN COMMITTEE OF LANCASTER COUNTY, 

March 19, 1776. 

GENTLEMEN : We received last night a Letter from the Com- 
mittee of Safety of the Province of Pennsylvania, accompanied with 
their Resolutions & those of the Congress respecting the Officers 
who are Prisoners here. In Consequence of the Authority delegated 
so us, to make the best arrangement we could, as to this Distribu- 
tion, we beg leave to mention to you that we have pitched upon 
the Town of York for the Place of Residence of Captains Strong & 
Livingston Lieutenants Wittington, Thompson & Thomas, & 
Ensign Gordon of the 26th Regt. of Capt'n Robertson of the 
Royal Emigrants, of Capt'n Chase of the Navy. Lieutenant Mc- 
Donnel of the 26th Regt. is absent in Philad'a by the Permission 
of the Hon'ble Congress. Capt'n Campbell has also leave to go to 
Philad'a to visit Mrs. Campbell who is indisposed. Should they re- 
turn Irere they will also be fixed amongst you. The Officer's Ser- 
vants accompany them. The other Officers are stationed at Car- 
lisle. All the Military Gentlemen start from this Place on Friday 
next under the escort of two of us. 

We think it our Duty to give you the earliest Inteligence we 
possibly can of this measure, that you may take the proper Steps 
with Respect to their Plans of Lodging, & such necessary precau- 
tions as must inevitably result from our Appointment. Permit us 
to quote a Passage from the Congress' Letter to us. "Upon tne 



AND MILITIA OF THE REVOLUTION. 513 

whole Gentlemen you have judged rightly in supposing every meas- 
ure you have taken to render the Situation of our Prisoners as com- 
fortable as possible, would be agreeable to us. As men, they have 
a right to all the Claims of Humanity, As Countrymen, tho' Ene- 
mies, they claim something more. You have Therefore the Thanks 
of The Congress." Need we suggest to you, Gentlemen, that your 
Interesting yourselves in Behalf of those Officers who are to reside 
amongst you, in procuring them such private Lodging, necessary 
accommodations as they may want, will particularly oblige those 
Gentlemen & this Board ? Your own feelings, we are persuaded, 
will render this Intimation perfectly unnecessary. 

We have to apologize to you for the Liberty we have taken to 
open your Letter from the Committee of Safety. Some Doubts 
arose with respect to our Taking of the Parole of the Prisoners be- 
fore they left this Borough. We recurred to your Letter for a So- 
lution of our Difficulties. The common cause we are engaged in 
must serve as our excuse. 

You will please to forward the Letter herewith sent to the Com- 
mittee of Cumberland County by Express. We are directed to 
transmit our Letters as early as possible. 

We are Gentlemen very truly,

LANCASTER, March 29, 1776. 

GENTLEMEN : We have received your Letter of the 14 th Instant, 
accompanied with the Resolves of Congress of the 26 th February, 
respecting the Distribution of the Officers late Prisoners in this 
Borough. In Order that your Resolution might be immediately 
effected, we desired the attendance of those Gentlemen, on your 
Letters Coming to Hand. After some Conference, we pitched on 
the Town of York for the Residence of the following Officers, viz' : 
Captain John Strong, Capt. John Livingston, Lieut. D. McDonnell, 
Lieut. E. P. Willihgton, Lieut. Robert Thomas, Lieut. Edward 
Thompson, & Ensign James Gordon, all of the 26'" Reg e . also of 
Capt". Daniel Robertson & Capt. Duncan Campbell botli of the 
Royal Emigrants and of Capt". Robert Chace of the Navy. The 
Town of Carlisle was fixed on for the Officers of the 7 th Reg 1 , viz 1 : 
Captain Francis William Kinneaf, Capt". Tim. Newmarsh, Capt".

514 ASSOCIATED BATTALIONS 

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 
whatever Pain a Separation from their Men might cause to the 
Military Gentlemen, they acquiesced with our Arrangement with 
great Politeness. We permitted one Servant to attend each Officer, 
and engaged at the 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 Amounts. We wrote to the Committee of York and Carlisle 
agreeable to your Desire, previous to the Officers setting out, and 
sent them your Letters. Capt". Campbell afterwards produced a 
Letter from the President of the Congress, permitting him to go 
Philad a . so that his llout was altered. Capt". Gordon of the 26 th 
Reg 1 , came to this Town since, and brought with him an Extract 
from your Minutes. He went a few Days ago to York. Upon the 
whole, Gentlemen, we have transacted this Business according to 
the Best Judgement we could form, from our Experience of the 
Conduct of the Officers ; and we natter ourselves our Conduct herein 
will prove satisfactory. 

Upon the Receipt of your Letter of the 19 th Instant, we wrote to 
the 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 their 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 prepared & 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 the Associators. When the late Resolve of Congress con- 
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 
supply of Fire- Arms. The fatal Consequence which may arise from 
the Want of arms amongst us are too obvious to be insisted on, par- 
ticularly in this Town, 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 



AND MILITIA OF THE REVOLUTION. 515 

in our Magazine. As this 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 1 Inst. 
requiring us to fill up a Blank left for the Names of some Persons 
appointed to purchase 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 to inform 
ourselves on this Subject. We cannot lind that there any Muskets 
in the Hands of Non-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 the Spirit of our military Associators. 

We ardently wish & pray to obviate this powerful objection. We 
are confident, it is not the Meaning of your Board to encourage the 
poor and needy Associators to part with 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 

Your very Obedient & Humble Servants, 
By Order of the Committee, 

J. YEATES, Chairman.

PHIL A., March 30, 1776. 

GENTS: The Committee are desirous of Having made in your 
County, three Hundred Riffles, but do not think proper to apply to 
your Gunsmiths, least they should Impede the makeing of the Mus- 
ketts ordered by the Assembly, having been informed that you have 



516 ASSOCIATED BATTALIONS 

had much trouble before you could get the Gunsmiths to work. 
We are desirous to co-operate with you, and doubt not the gun- 
smiths you have makeing Musketts, will be very fond to make the 
Rimes, and therefore think will be of advantage to give the make- 
ing of the Riffles, among the smiths in proportion to the Musketts 
they make. The constant attention you have paid to the publick 
service has been an inducement to us to give you this additional 
Trouble, which we doubt not you will excuse & shall be obliged to 
you to undertake to applying to the Gunsmiths on the subject. 



TO CONGRESS FROM THE COMMITTEE OF LANCASTER 
COUNTY. 



IN COMMITTEE, LANCASTER, April lltk, 1776. 

GENTLEMEN : The officers of the 7th and 36th regiments, with 
those of the Royal Emigrants and Captain Chase 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 
the 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 the moneys due at their lodgings and diet, 
at the houses where they were lodged and messed in this town ; and 
the persons who have demands against those gentlemen for these 
articles, having laid their accounts before this Committee, and re- 
quested the assistance of the Committee in procuring them their 
moneys, we are obliged to trouble the Honorable the Congress with 
a state of the demands and accounts of these persons, and request 
their direction in the matter, that these creditors of the officers 
(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. 

The Committee, gentlemen, are interested in this matter. The 
officers, when brought to this town by Capt. Mott, were placed by 
him in the houses of Messrs. Mathias Slough and Adam Reigart, 
whose accounts, we understand, have been transmitted to Congress, 
and are therefore not taken notice of , here. After those gentlemen 
had entertained and provided for the officers a considerable time, 
they found it very inconvenient and requested their removal. The 
officers took great pains to provide themselves with lodgings and 
accommodations, but without success. The gentlemen with whom 
they were first placed, at length refused absolutely to provide for 
them any longer, and applied to the Committee to relieve them. 
The officers in this situation likewise addressed the Committee, 



AKD MILITIA OF THE REVOLUTION. 517 

representing the difficulties 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, though enemies, we could not avoid render- 
ing every service in our power. We made interest with some of 
the inhabitants to afford them private lodging with fire wood and 
candles. At these private houses they lodged and breakfasted, at- 
tended by their own servants, and as it was inconvenient for private 
families to dress dinners and suppers for them, we prevailed upon 
Mr. John Jordan, whose demand is the most considerable, to mess 
them at his house. And though we did not absolutely engage for 
the payment of their demand, yet as we assured them of our influ- 
ence in procuring them satisfaction in case the officers should be 
unable to pay them, we have the greatest reasons to believe these 
assurances from us were their principal inducement to entertain 
these gentlemen. They now resort to us, and we must look up to 
the Honorable the Congress. We must do that j ustice to the officers 
of the 7th regiment to mention that none of these demands relate 
to that corps except the trifling sum of 6 10s Od due to Michael 
Bartges, and that the residue is entirely for the lodging and ac. 
commodation of the 26th regiment. 

The Committee have been highly honored and very happy in the 
testimony they have received of the approbation of Congress, re- 
specting their former conduct toward the officers and soldiers, pris- 
oners here. We could not be idle spectators of the distress these 
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 
them 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 pass without 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 officers 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 receipts for their rations, are to be deemed 
still in force, and whether, upon application of the soldiers for shoes 
or any necessary clothing (those applications now becoming fre- 
quent), this Committee shall provide them, at the Continental ex- 
pense ? We shall steadily persist in carrying into execution every ' 
resolve of the Honorable the Congress, and be strictly attentive to 
their directions and recommendations.

THE LANCASTER COMMITTEE TO THE GENERAL 
COMMITTEE. 

IN COMMITTEE FOR LANCASTER COUNTY, 
LANCASTER, April 11, 1776. 

GENTLEMEN : We received your Letter of the 30 th March a few 
Days ago, but as the Committee of the whole county was appointed 
to meet shortly after, the consideration of the same was postponed 
until tins 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 who are not so strong-handed with a 
lesser number within those Terms. They ihsist on the Price of 
4.10 per Rifle (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. This 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 possible. We perceive clearly 
that your Body have judged with the greatest Propriety, in fixing 
the Number of Muskets made by each Workmen, as the Proportion 
by which the Rifles are to be furnished. Your Desire of Co-oper- 
ating with us & 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 Rifles, should altogether 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 Neighbours, who are not so well 
provided. A Recommendation from your Honourable Board to 
such Persons to supply others with those articles, at a generous, 
tho' not unreasonable Price, might be attended with good effects. 
We suggest this Matter to you for your consideration. 

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



AND MILITIA OF THE REVOLUTION. 519 

Cartridge-Boxes, &c. Their Situations in Life are such as indis- 
pensibly demand their Money when they have completed their 
Work. Our Gun-Smiths particularly, feel the Want of Cash as we 
have precluded them (or attempted it) from all other Work, until 
the public Necessities are supplied. 

The Field Officers of this County have required of us some more 
copies of the Articles of Association, and the Rules and Regula- 
tions for the better Government of the military associators. Those 
already sent up to us by you, have not been sufficient 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 th 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,

DEAR SIR : I arrived at home on Sunday evening and yesterday 
morning had the Comittee Summoned to meet & when met I Laid 
before them the letter Comitted to my Charge by you, from the 
Comittee of Safety requesting the arms to be furnished to Cap. De- 
huff and have the Pleasure to Tell you that it was Itnediately and 
unanimously agreed that -Such arms Should be furnished, viz: as 
many as Cap 1 . Dehuff should want to arm his Company and no more, 
tho' I pushed hard to get a hundred. I then urged the Necessity there 
was of Procuring Blankets and Tow Linnin upon which it was Ima- 
d lately agreed that letters Should be wrote to the Several Township 
Comittees and request their assistance which is Done, and I have 
No Doubt but in a very Short Time we Shall Procure as many 
Blankets and as much Tow Linnin as we want. I at the Same time 
urged the Necessity there was of Procuring as many Rifled Guns 
as Possible and requested leave to advertise the Same which is not 
approved of because it Does not appear from any resolve of as- 



520 ASSOCIATED BATTALIONS 

sembly or Coinittee of Safety that I am ordered to Procure them. 
Shall therefore be obliged to you to procure Such a resolve and 
Send to me as soon as Possible. Shall in the Mean time Procure as 
many as I Can ; to-morrow our Taylers go to Work at the Hunting 
Shirts for which use I have a very Large Quantity of Linnin on 
hand as well as for the Purpose of making other Shirts, and hope 
soon to Procure as much blue Cloth as will Furnish the Musketry. 
Agreeable to promise I have Inquired the price of the Kind of Caps 
you want for the Rifle men and am glad to find that the Difference 
in price between them and hatts is such as we may venture at it 
being but 6s. 6d. a piece ; have however not ordered any Nor Shall 
I, until I have the pleasure of your orders on the Subject. I have 
Sent you by the bearer my son a Pattern for a Coat of the best 
Cloth to be had here, which hope will please if not it may Perhaps 
Sute some other of the officers ; hope to hear from you by the first 
opportunity ; Meanwhile you may Depend on my greatest Diligence 
and am, Dear Sir, your Very Humble Servant,

LANCASTER, April 17 th , 1776. 

GENTLEMEN : Lieut. Dullhuntyof the 26 th Regiment has appeared 
this Evening in Committee. Not being personally acquainted with 
any Member of your Board, he has desired us to make his applica- 
tion to you concerning the place of his future Residence. 

From a former letter of ours to you, you will perceive that the 
other Officers Prisoners of the 26 th Regiment were Stationed by this 
Committee at York Town in pursuance to the directions which you 
gave us. We made this observation to Lieut Dulllmnty & 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 
had it in his Election either to go to York or Reading. And that 
he was then a Stranger to a fact which now weighs greatly with 
him. 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. lie has two young children with him, one at the 
Breast of M rs . Dullhunty who have not had that disorder. The 
Parents' feelings, under such circumstances, were strong Induce- 
ments to us to trouble you with his application. Should it be thought 
improper that Lieut. Dullhunty should continue in this Town where 
the Privates who are Prisoners are stationed, he requests to be per- 
mitted to go over to Reading with his Family. We have indulged 
his desire to remain here until your Sentiments can be made known 
to us. When we can be informed of your Orders we shall deem it 
our Duty to carry the same into immediate Execution.

IN COMMITTEE AT LEBANON, May 11 th , 1776. 
GENTLEMEN: By Virtue of your Orders of the 17 th April last, 
the Gen 1 . Officers, Prisoners of Warr, were removed from Reading 
to our little Village called Lebanon Town. We are Sarry to In- 
form you, that we Cannot procure such Houses & accomadations 
as Men of their Taste do require. Could it poossable be done, we 
would gladly shew them as good a Countenance as the present Dis- 
pute will admit of, But there are few good Houses in the place, and 
such as are belongs to Men in Trade who cannot, nor will not, rent 
them. Such Houses as we are able to procure would Satisfy a Poor 
Country-man to live in, but do not Please the Prisoners of War, 
neither do we look upon them Sufficiant to Accommadate Gentle- 
men. The said Officers also produced a letter to us, from Co 1 . Mc- 
Kean, one of the Members of the Hon ble . the Continantel Congress, 
bearing date the 30 th April last, telling them they might rest Satis- 
fied that the Order of removal from Reading was Groundless, that 
they might remain at Reading as long as to them Conveniant, &c !l . 
Therefore we know not whether they are to remain at Lebanon for 
any time or no. If Conveniant we would be glad they might be 
removed to Some other place, if not, the Officers will be obliged to 
except of such Houses as we are able to procure for them. The 
further Orders from your respectable Body by this Express would 
be very agreeable to

PHIL A., May 18th, 1776. 

GENT". : As the sole Intention of removing the Officers, Prisoners 
of War, from Reading to your Town are to seperate them from the 
Soldiers who are Prisoners there, this Committee are willing to in- 
dulge those Gent n . in any Station that will be most convenient and 
agreeable to them so as to answer that purpose. We therefore re- 
quest you would make known to those Gent", that if they can point 
out any other place where they can be better accomm d . than in your

THE GENERAL COMMITTEE TO THE COMMITTEE OF 
LANCASTER. 

PHILADELPHIA, May 22 nd ', 1776. 

To the Committee of Inspection and Observation for the County of 

Lancaster. 

We are under frequent Necessity of addressing you upon 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 prevailed in some parts 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 prohibitions of 
one important Branch of our Trade, and the Risque and Danger 
which have attended every other. 

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



524 ASSOCIATED BATTALIONS 

placed, rather than to a general Inclination in individual Trades, 
to Rapaciousness and Extortion. If even it should be supposed 
that Avarice has no small Share in producing this Complaint, this, 
although highly blameable should be patiently submitted to, for at 
what Time, or in what Country, has there not been some sordid 
Minds ready to prey upon the publick Necessities. Such Disposi- 
tion to extortion may indeed be but too common, we find it prevail 
where at least one of the Motives to it mentioned above, cannot be 
pretended. We have seen one of the 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 teach 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 
when nothing short of the closest Union can save us from Destruc- 
tion. We lament that Clamours should be excited where they can- 
not but be unavailable ; we would rather our Countrymen should 
consider whether the real, although temporary Inconvenience, they 
now feel, may not by care and Industry be converted into as real 
and permanent Benefits. It may, if rightly improved, teach us the 
Art of supplying our own Wants by our own Hands. Had it not 
been for the excessive Dearness of foreign Linnen, probably we 
should not have the present Prospect of relief in that Article, which 
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 which only can produce a chearful Acquie- 
scence under the present Circumstances of our Affairs, and a de- 
termined Spirit of Exertion to resist the Efforts of Tyranny ; such 
Sentiments we expect will be inculcated by all Men of understand- 
ing and Influence in their respective Neighbourhoods, 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 Opportunity whatever to excite.

GENTLEMEN : Yesterday morning before day all the prisoners 
of Warr stationed at this place absconded from their lodging and 
also their waiting men. The Night before they made Preparations 
to go a Fishing, as they sometimes amused themselves that Way, 
by means whereof they were not suspected till Yesterday Evening. 
Harrington went off Yesterday about Eight O'Clock, on pretence 
to be one of the Fishing party, and went by the way of Grubb's 
Forges. Two men are sent after him and hope he will be brought 
before you, before this Comes to hand. This morning the whole 
Family with whom they Lodged were Examined on Oath, touch- 
ing the matter, but no Intention of their Deserting or Obsconding, 
nor which way they toock can be Discovered. But it is Generally 
thought here, that they have made towards New York by private 
Roads over the mountains. We have dispached persons to Jones's, 
Stump's, Rehrer's, & Emrick's, on the mountain side, to alarm the 
Country ; Therefore thought fit to acquaint you with this affair, in 
order to receive your further Instructions how to proceed.

CAPT. GRUBB'S STATEMENT. 

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 he 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 him to walk unless he attended him.

WILLIAM ATLEE TO BENJAMIN FRANKLIN. 



IN COMMITTEE, LANCASTER, 23 d July, 1776. 
SIR : Your Express arrived here last Night between ten & eleven 
o'Clock, with the Ordinance of Convention for disarming the Non- 
Associators, and the Circular Letters to the Commanding Officers 
of the Battalions of Associators in this County, and this Morning 
about 8 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 
<fc 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 & 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 them 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 
here in proper Hands, to be paid by direction of the Committee to 
the officers who march with the Militia for the 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 Philadelphia ; 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 everything in

general Interest.

LANCASTER, Oct r . 28 th , 1776. 

SIR : Inclosed I send you the Depositions of Edward Cowan & 
Solomon Marauchey against Peter Grubb with Grubb's Recogni- 
zance. The behaviour of Grubb in putting the Continent to a 
great expense and receiving a Month's pay for his Battalion and 
afterwards sending his Men home is well known to the Council and 
ought not to be overlooked, and he ought to be brought to an Ac- 
count as well for that, as to what the within Depositions relate, 
speedily. He does not even deny his Sentiments and declared be- 
fore me that he could not tell whether he had drank Success to the 
King or his Health, but one or the other he did. 

I am, Sir, Your and the Council's Humble Servt, 

JOHN HUBLEY. 

N. B. It is likewise declared by Cowan & Marache That James 
Webb, Jr., in the same Company drank success to the Tories ; if you 
think proper you will send for him, as no Committee now exists 
here. 



Edward Cowan being duly Sworn, deposed arid saith That being 
in Company with Peter Grubb, Richard Swanwick and others, on 
the Evening of the 27 th Instant, That the said Peter Grubb, did, 
then take a Glass of Clarret and said u Success to King George," 
which the said Deponant took to be king George of Great Britain. 

Solomon Marauchey, being likewise duly Sworn, deposed & saith 
That being in same Company above mentioned did hear & see the 
above named Peter Grubb take a glass of Clarret and drink " Suc- 
cess to King George," which the said Depouant understood to mean 
King George of Great Britain.

Morning honoured with your Letter of the 12 th with Letters ad- 
dressed to the Colonels or Commanding officers of the eleven Bat- 
talions of Associators in this County (Michael Boyer, Express), and 
the same Day had them forwarded as directed in such manner that 
I have reason to believe the officers had them on the 15 th in every 
part of the County. 

And this Day, Stroud (your other Express) delivered me your 
Letter of the 14 th instant, with Letters addressed as above, all of 
which, except three or four, are I imagine by this time with the 
officers & the remainder will I hope reach them to morrow, each ac- 
companied with an address to the Associators. Stroud arrived here

Effects came to hand yesterday Evening. The Committee here 
yesterday had Hand Bills Printed & they will this day be dispersed 
thro' the County, inviting the Farmers to send down their Wag-

bearer of this to mention to you that, there are about sixty of out- 
Waggons on the Road towards the Jerseys with the Prisoners from 
hence, who would very probably strike across the Country to the

were wanted.

THE LANCASTER COMMITTEE TO THE GENERAL 
COMMITTEE. 

LANCASTER, the 13 th Dec r . 1776. 

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 theCompanys 
who should march from the respective Battalions in this County 
amounted to but Six Thousand nine Hundred & sixty-six Dollars 
& * d of a Dollar, that is 696* Dollars for each Company of ten Com- 
panys. I could not comply with the request of Col. Burd, however, 
as he mentioned that his whole Battalion were to march I ventured 
to send him One Thousand Dollars, and at the same time wrote him 
that I should send an Express to the Council of Safety & perhaps 
would have it in my Power to furnish him better when 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- 
portion 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 March of 
Militia. & should the Council think proper to forward a further 



AND MILITIA OF THE HE VOLUTION. 531 

Sum for the Commanding Otlicersof 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 
the assistance of their Brethren. There are a few of the Militia 
from Cumberland County arrived here, who say that large Num- 
bers are on their way down. The Battalion from Northumberland 
are also soon expected. Such numbers passing thro cannot be bil- 
leted on the Tavernkeepers, and as our Barracks are now empty 
(except a few sick who could not be removed) they are cleaning out 
for the reception of the Troops as they pass. Providing for them 
there will be less expensive than at the Taverns on Billet. But as 
to this, with the mode of providing for them, the quantity of pro- 
visions to be allowed, the appointment of a Commissary to provide 
for them, 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 the Escorts 
and Waggons sent with the Prisoners ; they took near Sixty Wag- 
gons. Under 30s. a day we could not get a waggon to go at this 
Season of the Year, & even at that rate were under the necessity 
of sending Parties of armed Men, into different Townships to press 
them & bring them in. We had to engage that they should be paid 
here & hope the lion 1 ' 10 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 
we are to dispose of it. 

We are also considerably in Debt to the Workmen and others 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 th instant & will want it to equip them for their march to 
Philad 11 . These things will take we think about fifteen Hundred 
Pounds, which we hope we may be enabled to pay. 

The Committee, to encourage the Farmers to turn out with their 
Waggons to the assistance of the Inhabitants of Philad a . 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, & hope the Council will please to let them have some.

THE LANCASTER COMMITTEE TO PRESIDENT 
WHARTON. 

LANCASTER, December the 3t sl , 1776. 

SIR : Your favour of the 15 th 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 the Commit- 
tee of Lancaster may find necessary. 

The Council by that Letter directed the Committee to appoint a 
Commissary to supply the Militia, who on their way through 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 let>, it to the 
choice of the officers of each Battalion to receive a penny p r . 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 representations that it 
would be difficult to procure provisions for the Troops on the Road, 
& that the Tavernkeepers exacted an extravagant price for such as 
they did furnish, we ventured to direct Mr. Wirtz not only to sup- 
ply all the Troops 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 f urnishing them 
appeared to the Committee the most certain & least expensive, & 



AXD MILITIA OF THE REVOLUTION. 533 

seemed the most agreeable to many of the officers of the Parties on. 
their way, as they had their Baggage Waggons with them & at this 
season of the year could carry Bread & Beef for three or four Days. 
To these was added where requested some Potatoes or Turnips <te a 
little Salt, so that at their Stages they ha.d nothing to request of 
the Landlords but House Room & the use of Kettles to dress their 
victuals, and some dressed it before they left this. The known 
scarcity of Provisions on the Road & backwardness of the publick 
Housekeepers to furnish it, induced the Committee thus far to ex- 
ceed the orders of the 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 1 of this month the Committee were honoured with the 
Council's Letter of the 9 th 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 Mifflin being then in Town with Col. Bird from 
Reading & they having appointed Mr. George Ross, jtin., a Deputy 
Quarter Master here, that Powder was by the General ordered into 
Mr. Ross's care, & is very probably the Powder meant by the Coun- 
cil. On receipt of the Letter I waited on the General, who men- 
tioned that Mr. Ross would take charge of those things, and that 
he & Mr. Bird would have the proper Guard appointed. However 
no Guard is as yet appointed, & 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 with those 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, *fe 
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 & 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 
(having left Philadelphia at the time of the alarm). He has a Cer- 
tificate from Mr. J. Gibsou of a Month's pay & bis Rations being 



534 ASSOCIATED BATTALIONS 

due to him early in this Month amounting to 4H dollars. lie seems 
to be out of Cash, & hath 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 & is apprehensive of very severe treatment should he fall 
into the Hands of the Enemy. 

I have the 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, & 
others to morrow, & they will be followed by the Town Companys 
of Colonel Slough'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, & arn happy when I have it in my power 
to render an essential service to my injured Country.

SIR : Your Letter of the 5 th instant respecting the Plunder in the 
possession of the Hessian Prisoners was handed to me this afternoon 
by Express. I have not yet had an opportunity of communicating 
the Contents of it to the Gentlemen appointed with rne 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 handed to me a number of Addresses tothepublickin 
English & German which the Committee will have distributed as 
directed. Also the Resolves of the Hon ble 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 the return of Cap 4 . 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 place 
out of Town at a small distance from the Barracks as a Magazine 
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 ble Congress or Council should appoint to that 
duty. With some other Matters as to which we beg the Sentiments

German workmanship we left it with him. Nothing else of value 
was to be found in their Baggage or apartments. There is a Silver 
Watch with one of the officers of the Militia here, which was handed 
to him by one of the Hessian Serjeants to get repaired. In the 
outer Case of the Watch is a neat advertisment of a watch Maker 
in Baltimore with a small piece of paper charging one Lieut. Mause 
with repairs & to the Chain is a Seal with the Letters F. W. M., 
and in the Hands of one of the Inhabitants here is a Silver Watch 
made by Johnston of Liverpool, which shews 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 further directions, 
both the Serjeants asserting they are their own property fairly pur- 
chased & not plundered. 

I beg leave to hand the Council a List of the Tradesmen among 
the Hession prisoners. A design of having the prisoners paraded 
& their Names called over once or twice a week by the officer 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 the Trades of such as were Trades- 
men to be marked opposite their Names. Upon examining the 
Lists & finding so great a number of Tradesmen among them, I 
thought it a duty to the public to mention it to the Council, & hope 
it will please. 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. This 
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 their own Terms, 
& the advance to them was of course charged by the Masters to the 
publick. 

Mr. Christian Wirtz yesterday presented to the Committee the 
Resolves of Council appointing him Town Major, with the Resolves 
for the Committee here to ''direct a sufficient number of aged or 
infirm Persons who are unfit to bear the fatigues of a Campaign to 
be enrolled under the Town Major for the purpose of guarding the 
Prisoners in the Barracks and the ammunition & Stores during the 
absence of the Militia," with the Resolve respecting the 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 cheerfulness 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 the Militia. They have tried several 
methods to get one or two of these Companys to march, but all to 
no purpose, as the language among them is that all shall go or 
none will go. We had therefore some thoughts of making up a 
Company from among those who 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 in 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 might 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 the several 
Colonels who have had Men in the flying Camp would be imme- 
diately had, & the Companys here being then upon an equal foot- 
ing we hope would march without further 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 the Council re- 
specting the allowance to be made to the Tavernkeepers for pro- 
viding victuals for 1;he Militia, and as there are many instances 
where the Men have their own Provisions with them or draw it 
here & have it cooked at the Taverns, we should be glad 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 11 th instant, and that the 2 rl & last were to leave 
it on the 12 th , on their way to Philad a . by way of Lancaster, where 
he hath requested Quarters ready for 620 Men, of which 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 be, 

Sir, your most obed 1 . humble Serv'., 

WILL. ATLEE. 

An officer from Col. McKay is just arrived to provide Quarters 
for part of the Battalion, & desires me to mention that the 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. He says they purpose waiting here three 
or four days to rest the Men.

SIR : The bearer hereof Mathew McHugh hath been confined in 
the Goal hereseveral weeks on a Mittimus of John Thome, Esquire, 
of Lebanon, a Copy of which is here inclosed. He hath frequently 
applied to the Committee here that he might have a hearing before 
them. But as they did not think they could properly determine in 
the matter after a Commitment by a Justice of the State they de- 
clined it. They have however ordered to me to take his Recogni- 
zance with three sufficient sureties (which I have done) for his ap- 
pearance before the Council of Safety, & obedience to sucli orders 
as they shall make in the premisses and is delivered to one of his 
Sureties (William Bell) who with the others is bound to conduct 
him to Philad". & return him to Lancaster Goal or otherwise dis- 
pose of him as the Council shall please to order. 

I take this opportunity to mention that the Waldeckers & Hes- 
sian prisoners under the Escort of Lieutenants Jordan & Miller ar- 
rived here this Morning & are at the Barracks. I shall present the 
Council's Letter which came by those officers to the Committee this 
afternoon & have no doubt every Member of the Committee will 
exert themselves to carry the orders of Council in respect to the 
march of the Militia here into immediate execution.

IN COMMITTEE, LANCASTER, the 10 th January, 1777. 
GENTLEMEN : At the time the British prisoners were removed 
from hence, a few who were then unwell continued at the 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 thought best to send 
them from hence to be disposed of as the Council of Safety shall 
think best, as they belong to the 7 th & 26 th Regiments & are part of 
those taken prisoners at St. John's and Chamblee. A List of their 
Names are inclosed. They occupied two of the Rooms in our Bar- 
racks. Those Rooms are now wanted for the Hessians & Wai- 
deckers. It seemed improper to have these persons so near to & 
mixed with the others, & as they were for exchange, sending them 
in tins manner seemed to the Committee moi'e elligible than em- 
ploying a Guard on purpose to conduct them. 

I am, Gentlemen, by order of the Committee, 

Your most obedient Servant, 

WILL. ATLEE, Chairman.

THE COMMITTEE TO PRESIDENT WHARTON. 



IN COMMITTEE, LANCASTER, y e 6 tn January, 1777. 

SIR : On the 5 th instant, Cap'. Murray and his Guard arrived here 
with the Hessian Prisoners, (I think about Eight Hundred & 
thirty) who are placed in our Barracks. They are rather 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 few more. They 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. They are kept from having intercourse with any but such 
persons as the Committee permits to see them, & the Rev d . Mr. 
Helmutt of the Lutheran Congregation, the Rev d . Mr. Helfenstein 
of the Calvinist Congregation & Mr. Heyney of the Moravians with 
the Members of Committee are appointed 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 Militia of the Town, to do duty until others 
may be ordered to relieve them. In the Guard none will be ad- 
mitted who have shown a backwardness when called upon to march 
with the Militia, & in a conference with Colonels Ross & 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 march ; from the other & 
Cap 1 . Musser's (of Ross's) are to be taken the Men who turned out 
to join the Camp. These together will we think amount to about 
sixty or seventy, & are to do duty as one Company under one set of 
officers, who are to be taken as equally as may be from the two 
Cornpanys & be charged monthly, & as to those who have skulked 
we are determined to be active in securing them & forwarding them 
after their Company s. 

The Inhabitants being uneasy at the Powder & some other Stores 
being placed in our Court House & new Goal, we have 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 place about 
the Town for a Magazine, & Mr. G. Ross,-jun., or some Person un- 
der his direction will we believe begin this day to lemove the Pow- 
der, &c., there. It is within view of the Guard House at the Bar- 
racks & proper Centries will be placed to secure it. We are obliged 
to promise Mr. Fortinee that the publick will make good to him any 
damages which his Building may sustain by the Powder & Stores 
being placed there. 



AND MILITIA OF THE REVOLUTION. 541 

As our Barracks are now taken up with the Prisoners, we are 
again obliged to place the Militia & Troops passing thro' here 
among the Taverns. They are much averse to it, & many of them 
took down their signs upon the occasion. However a deputation 
from the Committee went round amongst them, & promised to use 
our influence with the Council to have their allowance increased to 
12d or 15d p r . Meal, upon which the Q r . Master was desired to pro- 
ceed in placing the Troops with the Tavernkeepers & they have, 
tho' much against the Grain, accepted them. We beg the Council's 
sentiments on this matter. The prices of every kind of provisions 
amongst us are greatly raised, & it is really difficult to get the 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. 

By order of the Committee, 

I have the honor to be, 

Sir, your most obed'. Serv 1 .,

Sheweth: That your Petitioner was Appointed to the Office of Bar-

Appointment the Business of the said Office has Vastly increased, 
especially since the Loss of the City of Philadelphia. That your 
Petitioner is Obliged to keep and use a Horse continually, having 
never been able as yet to procure any Forrage from the Quarter 
Master, without which it would be Impossible to perform the busi- 
ness required to procure Wood, &c., for the Barracks & different 
other Places where Soldiers are quartered. That, that expence 
alone is very little inferior to his pay which he now receives. That 
he is sorry to say that the Barrack Master General by no means 
gives him that Assistance, which at this Time is so especially nec- 
essary or does he allow him such proper deputies, as the Nature of 
his Office requires.

Your Petitioner therefore prays that your Honours will please to 
take the Premises into your Consideration, And make such Order 
therein by Augmentation of his Pay, and Power to procure such 
Assistance by Deputies or otherwise as the Public Service especially 
at this Time absolutely requires, or as to your Honours shall seem 

Meet. 

And your Petitioner will allways pray,

WILLIAM ATLEE TO PRESIDENT REED. 



LANCASTER, December if 29 th , 1779. 

DEAU Sin : I have the honour of your Letter of the 22' 1 instant, 
repeating the Lands called the Indian Town, in or near Connestogoe 
Manner, said to be purchased lately by Mr. John Musser from John 
Penn, Esquire ; and had hopes that among my old Papers I should 
have found some Memorandums, which would have afforded me 
the pleasure of giving Council, with exactness, the contents of the 
agreement between William Penn & the Indians as to those Lands. 
As upon the Indians being killed at the Town, the (then) Sheriff, 
John Hay, Esquire, secured their Papers and I took a particular 
account of them, (with the Indian and Country Names of the In- 
dians belonging to the Town & the Tribes they were of), & 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 Lancaster, and the 
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 peace & amity 
concluded on between the Governor of Maryland & Cap 1 . 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 <fe the Indians under 
their Government.' 1 

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

"A writing purporting a Letter (which seems to be under the 
lesser Seal of the Province) signed W. Keith, dated at Philad", o fh 
May, 1710, directed to Civility or Tagotelessa and the Indian Chiefs 
at and near Connestogoe." 



544 ASSOCIATED BATTALIONS 

"A writing purporting a Letter signed James Logan, dated the 
23 d 4 mo ., 1717, directed to Civility & the other Indian Chiefs at Con- 
nestogoe." 

"A paper (which seems to be under the lesser Seal of the Province) 
signed James Logan, Secr'y, & purporting an order of Council held 
at Philad 1 , Sept. y e 28 Ih , 1708, or request to the Indians to appre- 
hend Nicole Godin on suspicion of several treasonable practices 
against the Government, &c." 

'An article of agreement of the three & twentieth Day of the 
second month, culled April, in the year one thousand seven Hun- 
dred & one, Between William Penn, Proprietary, &c., on the one 
part, and Connooday toll, King of the Indians inhabiting in or about 
the River Susquahannah, and Widaggh, Roqueeash ; and Andaggy- 
junkquagh, Chief of the said Nations of Indians ; Wopatblha, King, 
and Lemoytungth and Pemoyajooagh, Chiefs of the Nation of the 
Shawonnah Indians; and Abookaffoough, Brother to the Emperor 
for and in behalf of the Emperor (and Wecwhinjough, Cheequit- 
tagh, Tekyewsan & Woapatkoa Chiefs) of the Nations of the In- 
dians inhabiting in and about the northern part of the River Poto- 
mack in the said Province, for and in behalf of themselves and suc- 
cessors & their 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 they were to remain for the use of a 
Family of the 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 Proprietors ; 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 from Mrs. Su- 
sanna Wright, & 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. lie 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

Honour to give it a speedy conveyance to you. 

1 st Jan'y, 1780. 

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

to me I forward them.

delivered the writing to Cap 1 ". Thomas McKee and took his Receipt

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 their Fines for non-attendance, as also the 
Assessment for hiring the Volunteers, and we have given them all 
the indulgence and patience we Lawfully could to avoid the dis- 
agreeable steps which we are now compelled to take, having put 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 Charge 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 which he demanded Assistance and we 
Furnished him with seven men, with whom he 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 performing his duty. He then retired from that 
place and demanded a more Sufficient 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.

Law. We beg leave to be informed how to proceed against them, 
whether they are to be prosecuted agreeable to the civel Law or the

were all on horseback last nignt to pursue the Collecter in order to 
make an Assault. We are intended to bring this Controversie to an 
end with all possible Dispatch, let the consequence thereof be what- 
ever they will, but fear it will end with Tragedy, which is a matter 
that workes daily & Hourly upon our minds. We greatly depend

He writes me that they have a Letter from Governor Jefferson 
informing that Gen. Green with 4,000, chiefly militia, has had an 
engagement with Lord Cornwallis and about 2,500 regulars, about 
a mile and a half from Guilford Court House, on Thursday the 15th 
instant. The action continued an hour & a half, & was very bloody. 
General Green thought proper to retire about a 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 
& brought the intelligence from camp to Governor Jefferson, then 
came away ; he supposes there must have 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, Major Anderson & Captain Barrett 
of the Maryland Line; and among the latter, General Stevens, 
shot in the thigh & brought off, & Captain Fontleroy, shot also 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 hour 
& 45 minutes. The British were considerably superior in number 
A: force, having 12 ships to 9, and the consequence was that the 
British got into Chesapeak & the French returned to Rhode Island, 
without a vessel being taken or lost on either side. 

You will oblige me if you will mention to Mr. Zachary Shugart 
of your town, that I shou'd be very glad to see him here, if he cou'd 
make it suit him to take a ride this far, the 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. 
I am, Sir, with esteem,

WILLIAM ATLEE TO SAMUEL J. ATLEE. 



LANCASTER, y e 16 Sept., 17S1. 

DEAR BROTHER : The bearer of this, Mrs. Bradburn, is in pur- 
suit of her Husband. It is said by some that he is in N. York, & 
by others that he is in Jersey. She can give you the circumstances 
of his going away from hence. 

If when she arrives in Philad a . she should be able to learn where 
he is, & that he is N. York, she purposes tQ go to him, but as that 
can't be done witlfsafety to herself, without proper passports, the 
begs me to write to you & request you will give her such assistance 
in that way as you may with propriety. 

The poor woman is much distressed. We have endeavoured to 
prevail with her to stay here, where she has two Children }'et re- 
maining, but to no purpose, & she is in a bad condition for travel, 
ling. 

I thank you much for being so attentive to us Country Folks in 
forwarding the News *fc Papers. 

& am your affect. Bro., 

WILL. ATLEE. 

I wish I could get logdings at Jacob Bargees when I come down 
next week. 



COL. ADAM HUBLEY TO PRESIDENT MOORE. 



LANCASTER, November 20 th , 1781. 

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 the lenity of the Court, and I would 
beg to add (& particularly as I am requested by some of the members 
of y e Court) your Excellency's mercy should also be extended to 
the other two Prisoners, viz: George Lenhare & 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 
ollicers. 

Mr. Hambright 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, <&c., for money to keep them in proper order, he 
lias not been furnished with a six pence, nor can he procure on the 
Credit of the public even a person to sweep the Chimneys. The 
Barfacks at several times, for want of sweeping has taken fire, and 
unless he is enabled to keep 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 people, nor would they care anything if 
they burned to the ground. 

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

I wrote your Excellency, some time hence, respecting 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, 

Your Excellency's most Ob 1 . & very D. Serv 1 .,

Recruiting Service goes on but slowly. I should for my part be 
glad to have my Account settled, and perhaps it would be prudent 
for Col". Thompson to have his settled with the officers, as there is 
little more to be done at present. I returned yesterday from Car- 
lisle, where I was summoned to give Evidence in Behalf of the

Carrying on the Lead- Works on Juniata. The Jurey found for the
