Orange and Ulster


Information was given to the Convention by some of the Members from the Counties of Orange and Ulster, that there is great reason to apprehend that there are many dangerous persons in those Counties. That from several pieces of testimony given to the different Committees in those Counties, it is probable that persons there have been inlisting, or endeavouring to inlist, men to join the enemy.

Ordered, That the Members of this Convention from the Counties of Orange and Ulster, be a Committee to inquire into the grounds of the apprehensions, and the particulars of all such testimony as they can collect on that subject, and to report the measures necessary to be taken to prevent such disaffected persons in those Counties from joining or aiding the enemy.
