15 July 1775

Draft of address to Governor Legge from the Assembly in answer to his message. Assembly are sorry to differ so widely from the Governor; during the present alarming state of affairs in America they will not enter into debate with the Governor, lest people lose confidence in him, but will transmit, through him, their petition to the King. Meanwhile they ask for a recess. The office of Inspector-General is needless; they ask the removal of John Burrows from it.
