PROCEEDINGS OF THE CONVENTION [1774.

At a Provincial Meeting of DEPUTIES, chosen by several of the
counties in MARYLAND, held at the city of Annapolis. Novem-
ber the 21st, 1774, and continued by adjournment to Friday the
25th day of the same month, Were present,

FIFTY-SEVEN DEPUTIES.

MATTHEW TILGHMAN, Chairman.

JOHN DUCKETT, Clerk.

The delegates appointed to represent this province, at the late
continental congress, laid the proceedings of the congress before
this meeting, which being read and considered, were unanimously
approved of: And thereupon it is Resolved, That every member of
this meeting will, and every person in the province ought, strictly
and inviolably to observe, and carry into execution, the association
agreed on by the said continental congress.

It is recommended by this meeting, That, during the present
time of public calamity balls be discontinued.

Several counties not being fully represented, from the want of suf-
ficient notice of the time of this meeting, Resolved, That this meet-
ing will adjourn to Thursday the 8th day of December next; and
that a letter be wrote to those counties, earnestly to request them
to send their deputies to attend punctually on that day, as matters
of very great importance to this province will be then taken into
consideration.

The meeting adjourned to Thursday the 8th day of December
next.

JOHN DUCKETT, Clerk.
