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.
