Abstract
Glad a convention has now been made. Sorry to see people of NY duped by men the rectitude of whose intentions has long been in doubt. To declare against having any more assemblies would be dangerous because the people are too little informed to see the propriety of such action. However, your argument for putting conventions in their is forceful. A properly constituted assembly could consider Lord N orth's proposition for re-establishing peace between Britain and the colonies. It must be made clear that New York shares the hate of her neighbors, however, and is determined to defend her liberties.
