on its being made known to us, shall most certainly order
such to be arrested and dispose of them in such Manner as we
may think, will render the Public safe, but this Power, to be

We think it will be the best way to have the Arms taken from
the Insurgents, or surrendered up by them, fairly appraised
and, as soon as may be, put into Repair that they may be fit

General Assembly is properly the ultimate Judge of the

no great Influence. We shall soon send over a Commission
under a special Act of Assembly for the Trial of the chief
Offenders. The Ends of Justice, Policy and Example will be
best answered by the Punishment of a Few only.
