Summary:
When the convention troops passed through Pennsylvania on their way to Virginia, many of the soldiers, particularly the Germans, deserted, and took employment as laborers. Now that Clinton's army is in the vicinity, they notice that these men are moving eastward, and have imprisoned four men on suspicion of going to join the British forces. What steps should be taken concerning this?
