New York April 14, 1773.
Your Letter of the19.th Ins.t to the Speaker of the General As-
sembly of this Colony I this Day had the pleasure to receive, together
with a Copy of the Resolves entered into by the hon.ble the House of
Representatives of the Burgesses of the Colony of Virginia; both
which shall be laid before our Assembly as soon as they are con-
vened, which do not imagine will be before the latter End of this
or the Beginning of next Year, unless they should be called upon
some extraordinary Occasion.
I have the honour to be with Regard
Sir, y.r most obed.t humb: Serv.t
John Cruger
To the honb.le Peyton Randolph Esq:
Speaker of the House of Burgesses
of the Colony of Virginia.

New York April 24, 1773
Gent:
I had the Honour of your Letter of the 6.th Ins.t acquainting me
that the Committee of Correspondence had appointed you a Select
Corresponding Committee, and that in Pursuance of their Direc-
tion you request the Favour of me to transmit you a full Account
of the Principles and Authority on which was constituted the Court
of Enquiry said to have been lately held in the Colony of Rhode
Island, with Power to transport persons accused of Offences com-
mitted in America to places beyond Sea to be tried, together with an
authentic Copy of their Commission and Proceedings. As I have
received no Information of the nature and purport of the Commis-
sion, nor any Account of the Proceedings had thereon, but such

as has been communicated through the Channel of News-papers,

it is not in my power to give you an authentic Copy of either. We
have no Committee of Correspondence of the same kind with yours
appointed, but as soon as our Assembly meets shall lay your Letter
before them.

I have the honor to be with regard,
Gent., your mo. obt. St.,
John Cruger.
