Lieutenant Brett informed the Convention that sundry Prisoners are in the Guard-House, in custody of the Guard at this place under his command; some of them detained as suspicious persons, travelling without any certificates or passes, and others for reasons which were particularly assigned to the Convention.

The said Prisoners being severally brought in and examined:

Ordered, That Michael O' Farrell and Richard Gazart be respectively confined in the said Guard-House till further order of this Convention or their Committee of Safety; there being great reason to believe from the imperfect accounts given of themselves respectively, and particularly from the many contradictions in the account given by the said Richard Gazatt, that they are Deserters from the American Army.

The other Prisoners were respectively discharged.
