Description
Is unwilling, unless further evidence be forthcoming from the Council, to keep in prison, James Bracken, charged with giving intelligence to the enemy at Philadelphia, as his journey thither is explained by the necessity of seeking skilful physicians. In a postscript he adds that James Nugent and Gresenor, two of Felte Shockey's men, taken near Chambersburg, Cumberland County, are all, out of sixteen he has examined, that can be charged fairly with counterfeiting; they will be tried at Carlisle.
