families, by the operation of the said act for blocking up their har-
bour, and that the same be collected by the committees of the re-
spective counties, and shipped by them in such provisions as may
be thought most useful.

IX. Unanimously resolved, That this committee embrace this
public opportunity, to testify their gratitude and most cordial thanks
to the patrons and friends of liberty in Great Britain, for their pa-
triotic efforts to prevent the present calamity of America.

X. Resolved, That Matthew Tilghman, Thomas Johnson, jun.,
Robert Goldsborough, William Paca, and Samuel Chase, Esqrs., or
any two or more of them, be deputies for this province, to attend a
general congress of deputies from the colonies, at such time and
place as may be agreed on to effect one general plan of conduct, op-
erating on the commercial connection of the colonies with the mo-
ther country, for the relief of Boston and preservation of Ameri-
can liberty; and that the deputies for this province immediately
correspond with Virginia and Pennsylvania, and through them
with the other colonies, to obtain a meeting of the general con-
gress, and to communicate, as the opinion of this committee, that
the twentieth day of September next will be the most convenient
time, and the city of Philadelphia the most convenient place, for
a meeting, which time and place, to prevent delay, they are direct-
ed to propose.

XI. Resolved unanimously, That this province will break off all
trade and dealings with that colony, province, or town which shall
decline or refuse to come into the general plan which may be
adopted by the colonies.

XII. Resolved, That the deputies for this province, upon their
return, call together the committees of the several counties, and
lay before them the measures adopted by the general congress.

Ordered, That copies of these resolutions be transmitted to the
committees of correspondence for the several colonies, and be also
published in the Maryland Gazette.
By order,
