tion was formed, a Copy whereof we inclose you, which is expected
to be signed very generally by every Degree of the People here.—At
our Meeting, Copies of similar Resolutions, from some other Coun-
ties, were communicated; and a Meeting of Committees, from each
County, is appointed to be at Annapolis, the 2oth of next Month;
when, 'tis hoped, the Sentiments of the whole Province, will so well
coincide, that a general Resolution of Non-Importation, except as
to a few coarse necessary Articles, may be formed.

We are particularly desired to request, that the distributing

Your County is earnestly intreated to consider the Importance of
the Object, and to send some of your Gentlemen to the General
Meeting.—Hoping, Sir, for your best Assistance, in promoting a
general Concurrence of the Inhabitants, in Resolutions preservative
of the common Liberty,

We are

Your most obedient Servants,
