Appendix. 425

with the Letter from your Committee of Correspondence, I laid
before the House of Deputies of this Colony at their Meeting the

The House thoroughly convinced that a firm Union of the Col-
onies is absolutely necessary for the Presentation of their antient
legal and constitutional Rights, and that the Measures proposed by
your House of Burgesses will greatly promote so desirable an End,
came, Nemine Contradicente, into the Resolution's of which I have
