Description
Since writing his letter of the 10th he has learned from Mr. Peters that Hunter called the Assembly and communicated letters from Shirley and Bradock asking for supplies; if they do what is expected of them for the present service, they need not immediately be called again; if they refuse, Hunter must call them and put in execution the things directed in Penn's former letter; he will soon send the report of the Board of Trade; advises Hunter to keep close to the matter to be pressed upon the Assembly, and avoid controversy on foreign matters that they may throw in to perplex the business.
