Gent" In Consequence of the Resolutions of Congress, Letters
from his Excellency Genl Washington, and the Committee of Co-

Horses and Waggons allotted to be furnished by this State, the
General Assembly impressed with an adequate Idea of the wants of
the army and the indispensable Necessity of providing in the most
ample Manner for their Relief, feeling the Difficulties that surround
and embarrass our worthy Commander in Chief, and impelled by
that patriotic Zeal which has actuated their Conduct upon every
trying Emergency, and anxiously Solicitous to free our illustrious

An Act to procure an extra Supply of Provisions of the Bread Kind,
also Waggons & Horses &ca Copies of which we have the Honor to
transmit, We have appointed Persons in the several Counties to carry
these Laws into full Execution, and have directed them to inform
the People, that the extraordinary Power vested in us by the Law

Endeavours under those Acts, but we can with Confidence assure you
that if the Abilities of our People and our utmost Exertions are
competent to the Purposes intended to be effected by them, every
Thing required will be supplied as expeditiously as possible, If we
should fail of completing the Extraordinary Regiment within the
Time limited, the Militia are to be ordered out to make up the Defi-
ciency in the Manner directed by the Act, and then we shall have it
