Motion for a Return of the Plan for wintering the Troops in America


Then it was moved, "That an humble Address be presented to his Majesty, to desire that he would be graciously pleased to communicate to this House any plan or plans which may have been adopted for assigning winter-quarters for the Troops now in America; and such an account as may best be depended upon of the force which the Colonies will be able to bring into the field against his Majesty' s forces in those parts, in order that we may be better grounded in the humble advice which it is our duty to offer to his Majesty on the present alarming crisis."

Which being objected to, the former part of the motion was withdrawn. The question was then put, and it was resolved in the negative.
