To John Doughty
Mount Vernon 23d Septr ’93.
Your Letter, conveying to me the resolutions, agreed to by the Inhabitants of Morris County, the 10 inst: has reached my hands.1
Their firm & manly sentiments, declared in the resolutions, & united determination to protect & defend the honor & dignity of our Country, are such as become the freemen & citizens of the United States; & evince their firm & commendable resolution to preserve their liberty & independence inviolate. With such aid & support, under direction of Divine providence, I trust the flourishing condition & inestimable blessings now enjoyed, will be long continued to our Country.
