To Colo William Smallwood
Sir: Upon considering the Representations made by Major
Gist relative to Christian Carther the Council of Safety are of
Opinion that his Case comes properly under the 7th Article of
War, and that he cannot be punished with Death, and there-
fore that the appointment of a Court Martial by the Council of
Safety is unnecessary.
