ALPHAUETICAL LIST
OF

REVOLUTIONARY SOLDIERS.
1TT5-1T83.

[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 we enjoy.]

Gentlemen: Tlie only design of our meeting togetlier was to put an end to our own power in the Province by iixing upon a plan for calling a convention to form a government under the authority
of the execution of a resolve of Congress for calling fortli -4,5()<) of the militia of the Province to join the militia of the neigiiboring colonies to form a camp for our immediate protection. AVe presume only to recommend the plan we have formed to you, trusting that in case of so much consequence

But the sudden and unex[)ected separation

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 villai!!s 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 Britisli 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 The 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 177G— a year which we hope will be famed in the annals of history 'to the end of time, for estal>lishing upon a lasting foundation the

This assembly, taking into their serious consideration the several late acts of tlie British Parliament relative to America, came unanimously to the following declarations and resolves, viz: L 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 tliem. 3. Tliat the acts of the British Parliament for divesting us of such right, and assuming such power 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 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

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 15tli day of June, 1774, and the following resolves were agreed on, viz At a meeting of the inhabitants of tlie borough of Lancaster, at the court liouse in tlie said borough, on Wednesday, the 15tli day of June, 177-4: Agreed that to preserve the constitutional rights of tlie 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 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 the same act be repealed. Tliat the traders and iniiabitants of tliis town will join and concur with tlie patriotic merchants, tradesmen, and freeholders of the 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.

" It need not be repeated to you that matters of the higliest consequence to the happiness of this Province, nay of all British America, depend upon your deliberations this day perliaps nothing less than whether the breach with the country from which we descended shall be irreparably widened, or whetlier ways and means upon constitutional grounds may not yet be devised for closing that breach, and restoring that harmony from wliicli, in our better days, Great Britain and her colonies derived mutual strength and glory, and were exalted into an importance tliat, both in peace and war, made them the envy and terror of the neighboring nations. " Wlule subjects such as these are agitated before us, everythinc 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 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,

"• Whenever party distinctions begin to operate, ^ve 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 Avho 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 ki^own 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 that if, on any point, we should have a difference of sentiments, every person may be allowed to speak his mind freeh/, and to conclude what he has to offer, without any such outward marks of api)robation or disapprobation as clajijiinu or hissinij, and that if a division should be necessary, (which it is hoped may not be the case this day.) such division may be made in the manner desired by the ckuirman, with all possible order and decorum.

men in the State House Square, on Saturday, the 18th inst. By the 4th of those resolves, you will observe that it was left for the committee " To determine on the most proper mode of collecting
the sense of this Province in the present critical situation of our and appointing Deputies to attend the proposed Congress.'''' In pursuance of this trust, we have, upon the maturest deliberation, determined upon the mode contained in the two following proaffairs,

which we hope may meet with the approbation and concurrence 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 Province, requesting them to meet in this city as soon as i)ossible, but not later than the 1st of August next, to take into their consideration our very alarming situation.

time the Representatives are convened, in order to consult and ad. vise on tlie most expedient mode of appointing Deputies for the general Congress, and to give their 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 liave invited

to a conference or convention in their private capacity.

you approve of 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 such 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 Province, in one place,

In consequence thereof, one of the partners called on the committee, but denied their having received any tea, but as tiiis account by no means appeared satisfactory from several matterd 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 Philadelphia. 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 Pliiladelphia, who examined the matter, and it appeareth that this tea never had paid any duty, but was part of a seizure made by the Custom House and was afterwards ])urchased 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.

And the better to enable us so to do, we will use our utmost diligence to acquaint ourselves with military discipline and the art of war. We do further agree to divide ourselves into companies, not exceeding one hundred men each, so as to make it most convenient to our situations and settlements, and to elect and cliuse such persons as the majority of each company shall think proper for officers, viz: for each company, a captain, two lieutenants, and one ensign, who shall have the power of appointing the other officers un. der them necessary for the companies.

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:

Gentlemen Your letter of

sideration.

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 troops 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 witiiout 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 the public expense, and put into the hands of such associators as were luiable 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.

were beforehand with us, and having the first choice, took between and seventy of the best of them (for which Mr. Carseu has a receipt) leaving a parcel of rubbish which were sent to tliis town, consisting of barrels mostly without locks and stocks, and all of them so covered with rust that they were thouglit 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, tliey 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 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 Committee 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 Philadelsixty

phia.

This, gentlemen, is the first opportunity we have had of answering 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 19tli 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 sub-committee tliere. J. Brooks remains confined in our gaol. of twelve gentlemen residing in and near this town, has been appointed 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 approved of, and it is ordered that the same be transmitted to the Committee of Safety by the first conveyance.

CAPTAIN JOHN REED'S COMPANY.
[Capt. John Reed, tlie commander of the following company during the Jersej' campaign of 1776-77, was tlie son of James Reed, who located near the mouth of Powell's creek, Lancaster, now Dauphin county, probably as early as 1728.

Sir Yours I reC* last Night but cannot possibly comply with your Request, as we liave too much Divisions in this Department, the five Sub-divisions laid off in Paxton met tolerably well except the Germans, who seem cliietly all to stand aloof, three 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 these Companies to-Morrow as to the Dispute about pay, I think if they would liave the least Consideration, miglit be soon removed, it might answer well enough to draw out a few men when there was no compulsion nor Law to put every ISIan on an equal Ballance in expense of the War, but as the Law is regulated at present, except the wliole 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 tliink themselves wiser law-makers than the Choice of the State, because each Company or Draught is made out of the whole Battalion, and if they should deviate from tlie 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, tlie 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 tliat should

be the Case, that you can recommend them to us. I liad a letter from Col.

As tlie President has put it in my power to continue the guard at my pleasure, I do think proper to continue the Substitutes 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 Imployed as the house of Assembly has appointed me the drudge in that respect, for those very mute good People, & have boren the burtlien 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 agreeable to my duty without Partiality to Persons while in my present station.

"We are informed that there are some of tlie Provincial Muskets in the hands of tlie Military Associutors and others of your County. The present gloomy prospect of Americans affairs and the daily expectation there is of some Sliips of War being sent to awe tfe Hitimidate 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 r.nessayd to put this City & Province in a compleat i)osture of defence. But unhappily we find that wiien 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 ajiplyiug to you with a request that you will call in the said Provincial arms and send them to this Committee with all the Expedition ct dispatch in your power. Your performance of this request will manifest your attachment to the generel interests of tlie Colony, give confidence to those that aro most immediately exposed to the insults of the enemy and encourage 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.

Muskets

in the

Hands

of the military Associators A: others in this
tliis

County, has been laid before
sideration.

Coniniittee,

and taken into con-

We find that the Gentlemen who were the iJommittee of Correspondence, ai»pointed by the late County Committee, liad ui>on the Receipt of your Letter, i)ublisheil & dispursed Hand Rills tliroughout the County requiring tlie 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 Paxlang, wliere they remained witliout any Notice or care being taken of them, until tlie unliapi>y Disputes between Great Britain & tlie Colonies rendered it indispensibly necessary for our Safety to associate & arm iu Defence of our Rights. Tlie then Committee of this County upon hearing of tliose arms, requested some of tiieir members to examine them & send them down, intending an application to the Assembly to luive them repaired at the public expense, and put into the Hands of such Associators 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 witli 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 liavingtlie fust choice took between sixty and seventy of the best of them, ,for wliicli Mr. Carson has a Receipt) leaving a Parcel of Rubbish which were sent to this Town, consisting of Barrels mostly without Locks & Stocks, and all of them so covered with Rust, tliat they were thought almost unfit for use, & scarcely wortli repairing. Many of them were loaded, and had probably been so for many years. Some of the poorei-* Associators here took the Barrels, & with much Labour had them cleansed. By tiie Help of some old locks, which about this Time were found in a Garret in tiiis Town (without an owner) and were distributed amongst them, they had them \)\\i in such Repair as to serve them to exercise with. These Persons liave been at a considerable exi)ence in putting tlie arms in the order they now are, and if they are deprived of them are not able to purciiase 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 Committee 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 exi)ence of repairing them, are to be reimbursed, we shall cheerfully exert ourselves to the utmost of our

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

We observe by tlie Orders to the Officers recruiting here for the Continental Army that they are at liberty to take all able bodied Men between 16 & 50, bought Servants excepted. Under these orders tlie Gentlemen recruiting here have inlisted several Apprentices in this Town, and amongst them, some of tlie Gunsmiths' Apprentices. The necessity of keeping our Gunsmiths busily employed in finishing tlie Arms required to be f urnislied by this County and tlie assurances we had that many of the Gunsmitlis' Apprentices intended to inlist (wliicli upon examination we found to be so) induced us to interfere. We liave prevailed upon Cap'. Ilubley 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 Committee 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 exceeding 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 the Sentiments 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 directions

how to conduct ourselves in this Matter in future, which we shall punctually observe. The Soldier prisoners here make frequent applications to be suf-

Vv'atson, wherein the inlistments were actually signed before we knew of it. These Men we directed to go with Cap'. Watson on the recruiting Service, & at the same time promised tlieir former Cap'. (Kinnear of the 7'" Reg', 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

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 Hatter ourselves our Conduct herein

will prove satisfactory.

Upon the Receipt of your Letter of the 19"" 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 Condition 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 miglit be prepared & in Readiness to are filled with the utmost Conmarch at an Hour's Warning.

We

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 concerning the Disarming of Non-Associators is carried into Execution 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, particularly in this Town, where we have about four hundred Prisoners, and most of them of active, restless and uneasy Spirits. We liave ordered 250 Weight of Powder immediately to be made up into Cartridges & fitted with proper Ball, so as to suit the several Bores of the Muskets and Guns amongst us, and to be lodged

Gentlemen, to answer your Letter of the 23' Inst, up a Blank left for the Names of some Persons appointed to purchase of allsucli 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 find 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 Comi)anies, who are uiuible to supply themselves with any Kind of Firelocks to learn the military Exercise. W^e regret exceedingly, that the unfortunate Want of proper arms greatly damps tlie .Si)irit 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 Sfjirit 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

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 Guusmiths on the subject.

In Committee, Lancaster, April iith, 1776. offlcers of the 7th and 86tli reghiients, 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 towiis 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, and at the houses where they were lodged and messed in this town the persons who have demands against those gentlemen for these articles, having laid their accounts before this Committee, and requested 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 adjusted and paid. The Committee, gentlemen, are interested in this matter. The offlcers, 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 otlieers 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,

representing the dilllculties they were subjected to, every moment in expectation of being turned out of doors and having notice tiuit no more provisions would be dressed for them. To gentlemen in that delicate situation, thougli enemies, we could not avoid render-

ing every service in our power. We made interest witli some of the inhabitants to afford them private lodging with fire wood and candles. At these private houses they lodged and breakfasted, at-

was inconvenient for i)rivate 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 influtended by their
servants, and as

and suppers

for

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 tl\at justice to the officers of tlie 7th regiment to mention that none of these demands relate to that corps except the trifling sum of £0 10s Od due to Michael Bartges, and that the residue is entirely for tiie lodging and ac_ commodation of the 26tli regiment. The Committee have been highly honored and very happy in the testimony they have received of the approbation of Congress, respecting their former conduct toward tiie officers and soldiers, prisoners 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 tiiem in a manner different from that recommened to us by the Honorable the Congress, who, we hope will in the present case, suffer our conduct to pass without censure, and order in what manner 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 i)laces of residence to Lancaster, 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 slioes or any necessary clothing (those applications now becoming frequent), this Committee shall provide them, at the Continental expense ? We shall steadily persist in carrying into execution every resolve of tlie Honorable the Congress, and be strictly attentive to
their directions

and recommendations.

If even it should be supposed Avarice lias no small Share in producing tliis Complaint, tliis, altliough 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 tlie publick Necessities. Such Disposition 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 Yalue. 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 tlie Interposition of Power would sometimes produce more mischievous Consequences than the

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. Happily there are few Wants which tliis Country cannot of itself supply if we look about us, every Farm can afford some Substitute for almost every necessary Article that is now imported tnese need not be pointed out, being well known. It is tliese Sentiments which only can produce a chearful Acquiescence under the present Circumstances of our Affairs, and a determined Spirit of Exertion to resist the Efforts of Tyranny; such Sentiments we expect will be inculcated by all Men of understanding 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.

I do Certify that I saw Major Rogers on Tuesday night, between the hours of 9 & 10 o'clock. & tliat Cap. Murray desired him to repair to his Quarters at tliat 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. Witness my hand this 11''- day of July, 1776.

about 8 o'clock we dispatched three Expresses to different parts of the County, with a circular Letter and Ordinance to eacii 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 have assisted such Companys as were ready or nearly so, with Cash, Camp Kettles & a few Muskets and Bayonets, & our Gunsmiths have been busy for a few Days past in repairing their arms, but we think it our Duty to mention to the Convention that our Stores are nearly exhausted.

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 the Committee of Lancaster may find necessary. Tlie Council l)y that Letter directed the Committee to apjioint a Commissary to supply the Militia, who on tlieir way through 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 the choice of the officers of each Battalion to receive a penny p^ Mile or appoint a Commissary to sui)i)ly them with Rations. Agreeable to those orders the Committee appointed Mr. Christian

Wirtz Commissary, and finding from many rei)resentations that it would bedifiicult to procure provisions for the Troops on the Road, it that the Tavernkeepers exacted an extravagant price for such ns they did furnish, we ventured to direct Mr. Wirtz not only to suprequest it, with who should pass thro' here the accustomed Rations while here, but to furnish them with Rations to last them to Pliiladelphia. This mode of furnishing them appeared to the Committee the most certain & least expensive, «&

To these was added where requested some Potatoes or Turnips ct a little Salt, so that at tiieir Stages tliey had 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 tlie Road & backwardness of the i)ublick Housekeepers to furnish it, induced the Committee tlius far to exceed tlie orders of tlie Council they however hoi)e the measure will be approved of by the Council and tiiat their Commissary's just ac;

On receipt of the Letter I waited on the General, wiio mentioned that Mr. Ross would take charge of those things, and tliat he & Mr. Bird would have the proper Guard appointed. However no Guard is as yet appointed, & tlie Committee cannot look on themselves as having the cliarge of those things without furtiier directions, & by the by, if tiie Guard is to be selected from the Inhabitants of Lancaster or places adjacent, tlie committee cant help tiiiukiug tiiemselves m(n-e proi)er Persons, than Strangers, to choose and direct it. Tlie 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 tliey arrived.

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.

Tlie Committee always with cheerfulness endeavour to carry the Resolves of Council into execution, but upon consideration order me to mention tliat tliey 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 tlie language among tliem is that all sJiall go or none will go. We had tlierefo.ve some tlioughts of muking up a Comi)any from among tliose who have had the fatigue of the tlying Camp & are lately returned. They seem entitled to a share of the easy military duties amongst us. Having no Families or occupations in the Towmi they would be the more attentive to tlieir duty.

THE COMMITTEE TO PRESIDENT WHARTON.
In Committee, Lancaster, y 6'"- January, 1777. SiK On the 5"" instant, Cap'. Murray and his Guard arrived here with the Hessian Prisoners, (I think about Eight Hundred & thirty) who are phiced in our Barracks. They are rather crowded at present, being seventeen in a room, but in tlie course of a week we sliall be able to give them more room, as the carpenters are now busy in laying in Floors in the additional Buildings, and when that They have not received the is done we can stow away a few more.
:

insult since they came here, & agreeable to the request of the Council of Safety, the Inhabitants seem disposed to treat tliem with civility. They are kept from having Intercourse with any but such persons as the Committee permits to see them, & the Rev'. Mr. Helmutt of the Lutheran Congregation, the Rev''. Mr. Helfenstein of the Calvinist Congregation & Mr. Ileyney of the Moravians with the Members of Committee are appointed their V^isitors; & the two former propose sometimes giving them a Sermon in German.
leiist

As a Guard to tliem & 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 otliers m;iy be ordered to relieve them. In the Guard none will be admitted 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'. Musser's (of Ross's) are to be taken the Men who turned out to join the Camp. These together will we think anjount to about sixty or seventy, & are to do duty as one Company under one set of oflicers, who are to be taken as equally as may be from the two Companys & be charged monthly, & as to those who have skulked we are determined to be active in securing them & forwarding them
;

after their

Companys.

The Inhabitants being uneasy at the Powder & some otiier Stores being placed in our Court House & new Goal, we liave taken the House at Mr. Fortinee's out-Lot (a place known to the iMembers
from hence) for

rA\

As our Barracks are now taken np with the Prisoners, we are again obliged to phice 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 15i p^ Meal, upon which the Q^ Master was desired to proceed in placing the Troops with the Tavernkeepers & they have,
tho'

much against tlie Grain, accepted them. We beg the Councils sentiments on this matter. The prices of every kind of provisions amongst us are greatly raised, & it is really difficult to get the necessary supplys for the Town from the Farmers as heretofore, an evil which if not soon remidied naay be productive of bad consequences.

As upon the Indians being killed at tlie Town, the (then) Sheriff, John Hay, Esquire, secured their Papers and I took a i)articular account of them, (with the Indian and Country Names of the Indians 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 liave 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 tlie 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

Sir: I have just now received the enclosed Letter & Wan"iint from the Chief Justice with a request to forward it to you by Ex])ress.

tliat tliey liave a Letter from Governor JeiTerson Gen. Green with 4,000, cl)leliy militia, has liad an engagement with Lord Cornwallis and about 2.500 regulai's, 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 lialf 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 tlie 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'I Green's army were It is conjectured (the in high spirits and resolved upon it again. returns not being made) tliat we have had about 300 killed & wounded, among the former, ]Major Anderson & Captain Barrett of the Maryland Line; and among tlie latter, General Stevens, shot in the thigh & brouglit off, & Captain Fontleroy, sliot also in the thigh & left on the field. The enemy are said to liave between 500 & 700 killed & wounded. Also, that on the same a battle w^as fought between the French and British fleets near the Capes of Virginia it continued an hour & 45 minutes. Tlie British were considerably superior in number & 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 liere, if lie cou'd make it suit him to take a ride this far, the Council having requested me to make some inquiry of him respecting some transactions of some of our people while on Long Island.
