Description
Acknowledges a letter of the 9th and 15th ult., which he was too much engaged in public business to answer; he is glad to be out of the way of malice; Sir Henry [Moore] was resolved to make himself easy; though the Stamp Act was used to excite the mob, the directing of the mob against himself was caused by the resentment of men who think their power abridged by the establishment of appeals; the dependency or independency of the colonies seems now to be brought to the crisis; the Assembly have before them Hanson's protest as notary public in the case of Cuningham; hears that young Smith is enraged at some part of it; asks to be informed of anything from England; Gen. [Ralph] Burton intends for England byway of New York; would like to know his opinion of affairs; Capt. Johnson's patent is passed; hopes to be free from all business.
