Physical Description
L. S., Stephen Hopkins, Chairman. Endorsed. 2 pp. Fo
Description
They hear that New Hampshire has passed an act regulating prices; hope it will be carried out; their own regulations are pretty well adhered to, though some selfish persons have discontinued selling their goods; others who ventured to sell higher than at the stipulated prices have compounded with the buyers, or have been fined, or at present have suits pending against them; the measure is obviously necessary, and will be effective if carried out by neighboring states; they have also heard that New Hampshire continues to give a bounty of £20 to recruits; ask to be informed about this, and request a copy of the Act regulating prices; a fleet of thirteen sail has arrived at Newport, which they take to be the ships they sent to Long Island for wood; report from Long Island is that troops are embarking there on board of fourteen transports.
