Description His errand here has been successful; the better class of people required no arguments to convince them that it was for their own benefit to obey and support the laws; the lower classes were full of prejudices and passions, but by affability and moderation a change has been brought about; the proceedings of this day will probably secure obedience to the excise laws; a convention of committees from all the townships met at Parkinson's Ferry on the 14th, and appointed a committee of safety and one of conference; all matters have been adjusted with the latter committee, which reports today to the committee of safety; in case a reconciliation had not taken place, many people threatened to become British subjects, to remove into the Indian country, or to set up a government of their own; an expedition is now projected against Sandusky by the militia of the western counties; he and Irvine will return Monday, if the proceedings of the committee are favorable.
