[Document, 1775 July 29]
Abstract
Letter from the New York delegates to the Continental Congress. Received the Committee's letters of the 18 and 22 instant. The delegates feel it would be unwise to ask Congress to turn over the New Jersey arms to New York. Our colony should depend for defense on their own exertions. Do not let any of the powder in the colony leave it or be sold. New Jersey is sending two and one half tons of powder to Dobbs Ferry from where you will send it to General Schuyler. The Congress has already provided for a conference with the five nations and consequently it would be improper to lay papers on that subject before it for deliberation.
