It being suggested that the Military Stores of Lead, &c˙, belonging to this State, and which were lately, by order of the Convention, sent to the White-Plains, in Westchester County, are in danger, from the number of disaffected persons in that County, of being destroyed:

Thereupon, the Committee came to the following determination, to wit:

Whereas this Committee have reason to think that the Stores belonging to this State, which are stored in West-Chester County, are by no means secure from the designs of our open or secret enemies:

Therefore, Resolved, That the Chairman of the Committee of Westchester County deliver to the bearer hereof, Mr˙ John Cregier, all the Stores belonging to this State, and lately sent to be stored in the said County by order of the Convention of this State; and Mr˙ Cregier is hereby requested and authorized to convey the same to the landing at Tarry-Town, and from thence by water to the Fishkill-Landing.

Resolved, further, That the said Committee be requested to furnish a proper guard over the, said Stores until the arrival thereof to the Fishkills as aforesaid; and also that they afford Mr˙ Cregier all the aid in their power in the execution of this business.

And Ordered, That the Treasurer of this Convention advance to Mr˙ John Cregier the sum of sixty Dollars, to enable him to pay the expenses of transporting the Stores belonging to this State from Westchester County to the Fishkill-Landing, and take his receipt to account for the same.
