Gilmanton, August 28, 1776.

To the Honourable the Council and Assembly, or the Committee of Safety, for the Colony of NEW-HAMPSHIRE:

Whereas the Selectmen of the Town of Gilmanton have applied to us to sign an Association Paper, and there being some scruples on our minds, we cannot conscientiously sign it, and beg leave to assign our reasons; which are as follows, viz: We agree and consent to the Declaration of Independence on the British Crown, and are willing to pay our proportion to the support of the United Colonies; but, as to defend with arms, it is against our religious principles, and pray we may be excused. All which is most humbly submitted, by your Honours' most obedient humble servants,
