OF

REVOLUTIONARY SOLDIERS.
1TT5-1783.

;

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

government wo enjoy.]

ADDRESS OF THE COMMITTEE OF CONFERENCE
To
the Associntors of

Pennsylvania, June 25, 1776.

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

thority delegated to us expressly for that purpose.

We need not remind you that j'ou are now furnished with new motives to animate and support your courage. You are not about to contend against the power of Great Britain in order to displace
one set of villains to make room for another. Your arms will not be enervated in the day of battle with the reflection that you are to risk your lives or shed your blood for a British tyrant, or that your posterity will have your work to do over again. You are about to contend for permanent freedom, to be supported by a government which will be derived from yourselves, and which will have for its object not the enrollment of one man, or class of men only, but the safety, liberty, and happiness of every individual in the community. We call upon you, tiierefore, by the respect and obedience which are due to the authority of the United Colonies, to concur in this Tlie present campaign will probably decide important measure. It is now in your power to immortalize your tlie fate of America. 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 desert the common cause at the present juncture, the glory you have
acquired by your former exertions of strength and virtue will be tarnished, and our friends and brethern who are now acquiring laurels in the most remote parts of America will reproacli us and blush to own themselves natives or inhabitants of Pennsylvania. But there are other motives before you— your liouses, your fields, the legacies of your ancestors, or the dear-bought fruits of your own industry and your liberty-now urge you to the field. These can-

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 Remember the only from the instrumentality of your swords. name of Pennsylvania. Think of your ancestors and of your posterity

THE LANCASTER RESOLVES.
Pursuant to tlie publication of the resolves of the Committee of Correspondence for tlie city and county of Philadelphia, there was held a meeting of a very respectable number of the freemen and inhabitants of the county of Lancaster, on Saturday, the 9th of July, 1774, George Ross, Esq., in the chair. This assembly, taking into tlieir serious consideration the several late acts of the British Parliament relative to America, came unanimously 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 sovereign, and that we will at all times support and defend him to the utmost of our power, with our lives and fortunes, against his enemies.

do further declare that no power is constitutionally lodged hands of any body of men to give and grant our money, save only our representatives in assembly, who have at all times cheerfully granted aids to his Majesty whenever he has made a requisition from them. 3. Tiiat the acts of the British Parliament for divesting us of such right, and assuming such iiower to themselves, are unconstitutional, 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 tending to deprive us of our just rights and privileges. 5. That a close union of the Colonies, and their faithful adhering to such measures as a general Congress shall judge proper, are the most likely means to jirocure redress of American grievances and settle the rights of the Colonies on a permanent basis. 6. That it is highly expedient to appoint a committee, to meet the committee of the other counties of this Province at Philadelphia, on the loth instant, to confer with them on the important matters mentioned in the letter from the chairman of the committee of

In pursuance of a letter written by Mr. Charles Tiiompson, and sent to the iniiabitants of this borough, directed to the care of Mr. William Atlee, a meeting was held on the loth day of June, 1774, and the following resolves were agreed on, viz: At a meeting of tlie inhabitants of the borough of Lancaster, at the court liouse in the said borough, on Wednesday, the 15th day of June, 1774: Agreed that to preserve the constitutional rights of the iniiabitants of America, it- is incumbent on every Colony to unite and use the most effectual means to procure a repeal of the late act of Parliament against the town of Boston. That the act of Parliament for blocking up the port and harbor of Boston is an invasion of the riglits of the inhabitants of the said town, as subjects of tlie crown of Great Britain. That it is the opinion of tlie iniiabitants at this meeting that the proper and effectual means to be used to obtain a repeal of tlie said act, will be to put an immediate stop to all imports and exports, to and from Great Britain, until tiie same act be repealed. That the traders and inhabitants of this town will join and concur with tlie patriotic merchants, tradesmen, and freeholders of tlie city and county of Philadelphia, and other parts of this Province, in an association or solemn agreement to this purpose, if the same shall be by them thought necessary.

"At a very large and respectable meeting of the freeholders and freemen of the city and county of Philadelphia, on Saturday, June IS, 1774, Thomas Willing and John Dickinson, Esqrs., chairmen. " I. liesolved, That the act of Parliament for shuttting up the port of Boston is unconstitutional, oppressive to the inhabitants of that town, dangerous to the liberties of the British colonies, and that, therefore, we consider our brethern at Boston as sufiering in the common cause of America. "II. That a Congress of Deputies from the several Colonies in North America is the most probable and proper mode of })rocuring relief for our suffering brethren, obtaining redress of American grievances, securing our riglits and liberties, and rel'stablishing peace and harmony between Great Britain and these Colonies on a
constitutional foundation.

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

" IV. That the committee nominated by this meeting shall conand on mature deliberation determine what is the most proi)er mode of collecting the sense of this Province, and appointing deputies for the same to attend a general Congress; and, having determined thereupon, shall take such measures, as by them shall be judged most expedient, for procuring this Province to be represented at the said Congress, in the best manner that can be devised for promoting the public welfare. " V. That the committee be instructed immediately to set on foot a subscription for tlie relief of such poor inhabitants of the town of Boston as may be deprived of the means of subsistence by the operation of the act of Parliament commonly styled the Boston

" It need not be repeated to you that matters of the highest consequence to the happiness of this Province, nay of all British America, depend upon your deliberations this day perhaps nothing less than whether the breach with the country from which we descended shall be irreparably widened, or whether ways and means upon constitutional grounds may not yet be devised for closing that breach, and restoring that harmony from whicl), in our better days, Great Britain and her colonies derived mutual strengtii and glory, and were exalted into an importance that, both in peace and war, made them the envy and terror of the neighboring nations. " While subjects sucli as these are agitated before us, everytlnmi that may inflame and mislead the passions should be cast far behind us. A cause of such importance and magnitude as that now under our deliberation, is not to be conducted to its true issue by any heated or liasty resolves, nor by any bitterness and animosities among ourselves, nor even perhaps by too severe a recapitulation of past grievances, but require the temperate and enlightened zeal of the patriot, the prudence and experience of tlie aged, the strength of mind and vigor of those who are in tlieir prime of life, and, in short, the united wisdom and efforts of all, both high and low,

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

" Whenever party distinctions begin to operate, we shall give cause of triumph to those who may be watchful as well as powerful to abridge us of our native right. There ought to be no party, no contention here, but who shall be firmest and foremost in the common cause of America. Every man's sentiments should be freely heard, and without prejudice. While we contend for liberty with others, let us not refuse liberty to each other. " Whatever t'oie is known to be now passed, upon full deliberation, and by the unanimous voice of this great city and county^ will not only be respected through all America, but will have "such a weight as the proudest Minister in England may have reason to respect. But if it is known to be a divided vote, or adopted hastily on some angry day, it will only be injurious to our own cause. " What I have in charge to request of you is this tiiat if, on any point, W'e should have a difference of sentiments, every person may be allowed to speak his mind freely, and to conclude what lie has to offer, without any such outward marks of approbation or disapprobation as clapjpimj or hissing, and that if a division sliould be necessary, (which it is hoped may not be the case this day.) sucli division may be made in the manner desired by the chairman, with all possible order and decorum.

By the 4th of those resolves, you will observe that it was left for the committee " To determine on the most proper mode of collecting
the sense of this Province in the present critical situation of our affairs, and appointhig Deputies to attend the proposed Congress.'''' In pursuance of this trust, we have, upon tlie maturest deliberation, determined upon the mode contained in the two follovving pro-

which we hope may meet with the approbation and concurrence of your respectable county, viz: " 1. Tiiat the Speaker of the Honorable House of Reiireseiitatives be desired to write to the several members of Assembly in this Province, requesting them to meet in tiiis city as soon as i)ossible, but not later than the 1st of August next, to take into their consideration our very alarming situation.

spective counties, and that tlie said comaiittees, or sucli number of them as may be thought proper, may meet in Philadelphia at. the

time the Kepresentatives are convened, in order to consult and ad. vise on the most expedient mode of appointing Deputies for the general Congress, and to give tlieir weight to such as may be appointed.

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

preparatory to the general Congress. " We would not offer such an affront to the well known public spirit of Pennsylvanians as to question your zeal on the present occasion. Our very existence in the rank of freemen, and the security 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 concurrence in every measure that may be conducive to the public good and it is with pleasure we can assure you that all the Colonies, from S. Carolina to X. Hampshire, seem animated witli one spirit in the common cause, and consider this as the proper crisis for having our differences with tiie Mother Country brought to some certain issue, and our liberties fixt upon a permanent foundation. This desirable end can only be accomplished by a free communion of sentiments and a sincere fervent regard to the interests of our common country. We beg to be favoui-ed with an answer to this and whether the committee for your county can attend at Phila., at the time
proposed.

Tl)e committee, taking an account of all the marks of the case in whicli it was packed, removed tlie tea, and wrote to the committee of Philadelphia, who examined the matter, and it appeareth that this tea never had paid any duty, but was part of a seizure made by tlie Custom House and was afterwards purchased at a public sale by the original owner of it, as by a letter from the committee of Pliiladelphia, dated August 25lh, wrote and signed by the Honorable Thomas Willing, the chairman, directed to this committee, appears upon which, the said teas were returned again, and the said Lockharts were acquitted.

:

Gentlemen Your letter of

county, has been laid before this committee and taken into consideration.

We find that the gentlemen who were the Committee of Correspondence, appointed by the late county committee, had upon the receipt of your letter, published and dispersed hand-bills throughout the county requiring the persons possessed of such muskets to bring them in at this time. As none are brought in, we beg leave to suggest to you some facts, relative to those arms, and wait your
further directions. After the trooi)s raised by the Province in the late war were disbanded, a number of muskets and military accoutrements were lodged at a Mr. Carson's in Paxtang, where they remained without any notice or care being taken of them, until the unhappy disputes between Great Britain and the Colonies rendered it indispensably necessary for our safety to associate and arm in defence of our
rights. The then committee of this county, upon hearing of those arms, requested some of their members to examine and send them down, intending an application to the Assembly to have them repaired at tlie public expense, and put into the hands of such associators as were unable to furnish tliemselves, and who were to give receipts for them to be returned, if not lost in actual service. At this time arms were sought for with great assiduity by every one who wished to be instructed in the military discipline. The inhabitants of Cumberland county, knowing also of tlie provincial muskets,

were beforehand witli us, and having the first choice, took between 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 Many of them were loaded and use, and scarcely worth repairing. had probably been so for many years. Some of the poor associators here took the barrels, and with much labor had tliera cleaned. By the help of some old locks which about this time were found in a garret in this town (without an owner) and were distributed amongst them, they had them put into such repair as to serve them to exercise with. These persons have been at a considerable expense in putting them in the order they now are and if tliey are deprived of them, are not able to purchase others. There are a few indeed of the best of the firelocks which we think could safely be trusted to for real service. To take the arms from tlie poor people under such circumstances would greatly damp tlieir martial spirit. AVe conceive it our duty to mention these things to the Committee of Safety. If tliat honorable Board, nevertheless, shall be of opinion that such firelocks will be of use and will direct in what manner the people who have been at expense in repairing them are to be reimbursed, we shall cheerfully exert ourselves to the utmost of our power in calling them in, and forwarding them to Philadelsixty

Agreeable to the enclosed resolve of Congress, and with the Advice of the Board of War, I have determined that the Counties of Phihidelphia, Bucks, Cumberland, Berlss, and Xt)rthami)ton, send their Proportion of Militia to Bristol, to form a Cam[) at or Tlie Counties of Chester, Lancaster, and near tiiat Borougii Yorlc, to form a (Jamp at or near Chester. Your County is tofurnisli six hundred Men, to marcli immediately to Chester with as many arms and accoutrements as can be iiad in the County. If tlie first Class does not amount to that number, tlie second Class also are to marcli. You are to procure by purcliase or otlierwise a Blanket for each Man (wiiicli is to remain tlie property of tlie State,) money will be sent you for this purpose. If tiiey cannot be i)rocured liy purchase they must lie impressed l)y their value paid, this is to be done in a

Yours

I rec'' last

Night but cannot possibly comply

with your Request, as we have too much Divisions in this Department, the five Sub-divisions laid off in Paxton met tolerably well except the Germans, wiio seem chiefly all to stand aloof, tliree of the Companies chose their officers very well, and the other two neglected. There was no disputes about pay, but one of them seemed all desirous of being officers, and the other all Privates; declining any commissions tliat were offered. I have promised my attendance in one of tliese Companies to-Morrow as to the Dispute about pay, I tliink if they would have the least Consideration, miglit be soon removed, it miglit answer well enough to draw out a few men when there was no compulsion nor Law to put every Man on an equnl Ballance in expense of the War, but as the Law is regulated at present, except the whole State in general, or at least the whole Battalion woidd condescend to that Plan, it would be in vain for one Company to i)retend to it, except they would think lliemselves wiser law-makers thnn the Choice of the State, because each Company or Draught is made out of the whole Battalion, and if they should deviate from the Laws of the State, they would be a Derision 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.

As none are brought in, AVe beg leave to mention to you some Facts relative to those arms, ct wait your further Directions. After the Troops raised by tliis Province in the late War were disbanded, a number of Muskets & military Accoutrements were lodged at a Mr. Carson's in Paxtang, wiiere they remained witliout any Notice or care being taken of tliem, until the unliappy Disputes between Great Britain & the Colonies rendered it indispensibly necessary for our Safety to associate & arm in Defence of our Rights. The then Committee of this County upon hearing of those arms, requested some of their members to examine tiieni & send them down, intending an application to tlie Assembly to have them repaired at tlie public expense, and jnit into the Hands of such Associators as were unable to furnish themselves, and wlio were to give Receipts for them to be returned, if not lost in actual Service. At this Time, arms were sought for with great assiduity liy every

To take the arms from the poor People, under such circumstances would greatly damp their martial spirit.

Under these orders the Gentlemen recruiting here have inlisted several Apprentices in this Town, and amongst them, some of the Gunsmiths' Apprentices. The necessity of keeping our Gunsmitlis busily employed in finishing the Arms required to be furnislied by this County and tlie assurances we had that many of the Gunsmiths' Appren-

(which upon examination we found to be so) induced us to interfere. AVe have prevailed upon Cap'.

Tlie Gunsmiths assure us that if their apprentices or Servants who are employed in that Business are taken from them, they cannot go on with their work. We have them all now busily employed and many of their apprentices are exceeding good Workmen. We tlierefore beg the Sentiments of the Committee of Safety as to this matter and if an order of Congress is thought proper and necessary to prevent the inlistment of these Apprentices, request the Committee will i)rocure it & order it to be forwarded to us, that we may quiet the Minds of the Gunsmiths, who are very uneasy, and would be glad of an excuse to lay by the Musket-Work & make Rifles, which are more" profitable for them. in procuring these Apprentices to be sent to work with their Masters and in preventing the enlistment of others (until the Sentiments of the Congress or Committee of Safety sliall be known to us) we h.ave acted with a view to the real Interests of our Country & hope the approbation of the Committee of Safety with their directions how to conduct ourselves in this Matter in future, which we shall punctually observe.

Sir Your favour of the 15"' instant by George Strahly I received with fifteen thousand Dollars for the purpose of advancing the Militia a Month's pay, and such other public uses as tlie Committee of Lancaster may find necessary. Tiie Council by tliat Letter directed the Committee to appoint a Commissary to supply tlie Militia, who on their way tlirough Lancaster might be lodged in our Barracks with the Rations allowed by Congress, and as to the subsistance of the Battalions of our County on their march to join General Washington left it to tlie choice of the otiicers of each Battalion to receive a penny \)\ Mile or appoint a Commissary to supply them with Rations. Agreeable to those orders the Committee appointed ]Mr. Christian Wirtz Commissary, and finding from many reiiresentations that it Avould be dillicult to |)rocure provisions for the Troops on the Road, it that the Taveriikeepers exacted an extravagant i)rice for siu;h as they did furnish, we ventured to direct Mr. Wirtz not only to siiiiply all the Trooi)s who should pass thro' here & request it, with the accustomed Rations while here, but to furnish them with Rations to last them to Philadelphia. This mode of furnishing them

appeared to the Committee the most certain

Letter, and General Miftiin being then in Town with Col. Bird from Ileadmg & they having appointed Mr. George lioss, jun., a Deputy Quarter Master here, that ]\iwder was l)y the General ordered into Mr. Ross's care, & is very jirobably the I'owder meant by the Council. On receipt of the Letter I waited on the General, who mentioned that ]\Ir. Ross would take charge of those things, and that he & ]\Ir. Bird would have the proper Guard appointed. However the Committee cannot look on no Guard is as yet appointed, themselves as having the charge of those things without further directions, & by the by, if the Guard is to be selected from the Inhabitants of Lancaster or places adjacent, the committee cant help thinking themselves more proper Persons, than Strangers, to choose and direct it. The same thing has happened with regard to the Beef, &c., sent up. About the same time and daily since Waggons have arrived witli tliose articles. They were ordered by the General & Mr. Bird into the care of Mr. Ross as they arrived. After a few days I found those articles by Tickets with the Waggoners were directed by Mr. Snowden, assistant Commissary, to my charge, & some of the Waggoners called on me to receive their Loads & pay their (Carriage, but as Mr. Ross had received several quantities I directed the residue to him it continue to do so, to prevent confusion 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.

That on ac. count of the uneasiness of the Inhabitants we had hired a i)lace out of Town at a small distance from tlie Barracks as a JNIagazine for the Powder and Stores sent up here & that we had agreed to take into Continental pay a Company of about Sixty of the Militia to do duty as Guard to the Prisoners, Stores, &c., until relieved by others who the Hon''''' Congress or Council should ai)point to that duty.

Nothing else of value was to be found in their Baggage or apartments. There is a Silver AVatch with one of tl.-e officers of the Militia here, which was handed In the to him by one of the Hessian Serjeants to get repaired. outer Case of tlie Watch is a neat advertisment of a watch Maker iu Baltimore with a small piece of paper charging one Lieut.

Companys, & cuprompted me to require tiie Trades of sucli as were Tradesmen to l)e marked opposite their Names. Upon examining the Lists cS: linding so great a number of Tradesmen among them, I thought it a duty to the public to mention it to tlie Council, & hope it will jilease. I have no doubt but numbers of them would gladly be employed, & should it be thought proper to suffer it, it might not be amiss to fall upon some method of preventing the Master Workmen from outbidding one another for their Services. Tliis was the Case with the other prisoners when here. They would gladly have worked for small wages rather than be confined in the Barracks; hands were scarce, the Master Workmen kept raising their wages from time to time to keep them from changing places, the Fellows soon knew their own importance & made tiieir own Terms, & the advance to tliem was of course charged by the Masters to the

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

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

ject.

are not yet favoured with the directions of tlie Council respecting tlie allowance to be made to the Tavernkeei)eis for providing victuals for the Militia, and as there are many instances where the Men have their own Provisions with them or draw it here & liave it cooked at the Taverns, we should be ghtd to know the allowance to be made the Tavernkeepers in those Cases for their Fire, Candle, &c., & trouble with them. Colonel Mackay writes me that the first Division of his Battalion left Carlisle on the ir"* instant, and that the 2'^ & last were to leave it on the 12'^'', on their way to Philad". by way of Lancaster, where he hath requested Quarters ready for 620 Men, of wliieli I have given the Quarter Master notice, & should the publick Houses be too

have found some Memorandums, which Avould have afforded me the pleasure of giving Council, with exactness, the contents of the agreement between William Penn «fc the Indians as to those Lands. As upon the Indians being killed at tlie Town, the (then) Sheriff, Jolm Hay, Esquire, secured their Papers and I took a particular account of them, (witli the Indian and Country Names of the Indians belonging to tlie Town & the Tribes tliey were of). i\: imagined I still have it, tho' after two Days search among old dusty Papers I can't yet lay my Hands upon it. I have found the List which I then took of the Indians who were killed at the Town & in the Work House in Lanca.«ter, and tlie rough Draught of a Letter which I penned from the Sheriff to the then Governor, to whom the Deeds and Papers were (I think) sent. In this Draught is a short account of the Papers; but not so particularly set forth as in the List or

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

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