Title:
Document, 1775 December 14
Abstract:
The New York Convention has written to Governor Trumbull [of Connecticut] concerning the expedition against Rivington. They also will ask the Continental Congress to protect the union by providing that no troops shall pass through one colony without the permission of its Congress or the local Committee of Safety. New Jersey again applies for arms from New York. As New York is already stripped of arms, why should she supply more when New Jersey refuses to move against the arms stored by the Tories in Bergen County? Governor Tryon's proposals have been considered. While the Convention has expressed its approbation of the customary Assembly, it is not willing to accede to the calling of an assembly at this time.
