On the 11th March, 1776, the Convention of this State appointed a Committee, to wit: Mr˙ Van Zandt, Captain Denning, Mr˙ Beeckman, Colonel Brazier, and Mr˙ Sands, to examine the Treasurer' s accounts, and to point out what part of the charges therein were to be considered as Continental, and what Provincial. A˙ fair copy of the Continental account, as stated by them, was prepared by the Auditor' s clerk.

In May last, the Auditors, to wit: Messrs˙ Van Zandt, Bancker, Beeckman, Sands, and Denning, continued this account down to the 30th day of April last; it was afterwards examined by some of the New-York members of the Continental Congress, and then taken to the Convention of this State, where it underwent several alterations, in which state it is now fair copied. Many accounts being not then come in, the Auditors deferred sending it to Philadelphia till some of the principal ones could be procured; and many letters were wrote for that purpose.

Nothing more was done with the Continental account till the Auditor-General was appointed the latter end of July last, when he came to the Plains to endeavour to continue it down to that time, but the number of outstanding accounts was so increased by the great sums of money that had been paid out there by order of the Convention on account for services to be performed, as to induce him to defer the completion of it till they could be got in, several of which accounts he procured abroad, and left orders for writing to many persons who had neglected sending in theirs, which letters have accordingly been wrote, and copies of some of them sent. And though the number of outstanding accounts is greatly diminished, there are still many to be brought in, as per the annexed list, amounting to about £40,000.
