    I have just now received your letter of this day:1 I will call a Council tomorrow & lay it before them. But you must be sensible how Very low the power of Government is reduced at this time & how unable it is to afford protection against the people within this Town. If you would be pleased to attend yourself it would assist their Councils

    I am &c
