A committee of a meeting of Militia Officers of the City Bri-
gade consisting of Major General Thomas Proctor his aid du
camp, Major Wm. Sergeant, Colonel Francis Gurney, Colonel
Samuel McClain, and Captain John Woodside this day ad-
dressed the Governor on the subject of his circular letter, to
the Officers of the several Brigades of Militia of this Com-
monwealth, in the words following to wit, vizt: —

"At a meeting of the General Division and the officers of
Militia of the Philadelphia Brigade, at the State House in
the City of Philadelphia, Monday, June 11th, 1798.

The circular Letter from the Governor to the Militia Offi-
cers of Pennsylvania was read.

Resolved — That the members of this meeting are highly
sensible of the importance of the objects to which the Gover-
nor has called their attention, and are determined by their



648 MILITARY ABSTRACTS.

most zealous exertions to co-operate for the glorious purpose
of preserving the independence honor ajid safety of their
Country.

Resolved — That a Committee be appointed to prepare and
report an answer to the Governors address, expressive of
the determination contained in the preceeding Resolution, of
the most cordial approbation of the Patriotic Sentiments
with which the address is replete, and of the personal attach-
ment and esteem with which his public services has inspired
the members of this meeting."

A committee having been appointed retired, and in a little
time returned, and presented the following address, which was
adopted."

"To His Excellency Thomas Mifflin Governor of the State
of Pennsylvania,

"Sir, We have perused with great satisfaction your circulai
address to the Officers of the Militia of Pennsylvania The
sentiments which it expresses are proofs of an enlightened
Patriotism that cannot fail to increase the personal confidence
and esteem which your public services have long merited and
obtained from your fellow Citizens."

"Actuated by similar feelings we do not hesitate to assure
you of our most zealous co-operation in every measure that
can promote the honor and safety of our Country; nor can
we doubt the success of the general exertion of the Citizens
of the Union, when we reflect that a display of the same pa-
triotic virtues which established our national Independence
must be competent to protect our national rights."

"As it has been authoritatively announced, that our Gov-
ernment is compelled by France to relinguish the hope of
peace, we shall, in our official and private characters, prepare,
with alacrity for the painful alternative of war."

"The accomplishment of the objects of your address will,
therefore, command our earnest and most vigilant atten-
tion; and we anxiously hope that the spirit and patriotism of
the Great Body of the Militia of the Union (in addition to the
other resources, which the wisdom of Congress may employ)
will be found competent to repel every hostile attack upon
our Country, and to perpetuate that great political blessing
a Free Republican Government.

Signed by order and in behalf of the meeting
Thomas Proctor, Maj. Gen.
Division of the City and County of Philadelphia.
Attest

Wm. Sergeant, Secy. & A. D. C. to Gen. Proctor.



EXECUTIVE MINUTES— 1790-1817. 649

The Governor's reply to the foregoing address was in the
words following, vizt: —

Grentlemen.

I perceive, in the answer, that you have given to my cir-
cular address, the strongest evidence of that public spirit,
which has always been chai-acteristic of the Freeman of
Pennsylvania; and which, I am confident will be found, at
this crisis, to pervade the whole body of the Militia.

And here, permit me, more particularly, gentlemen, to en-
treat, that you (and I earnestly hope that all our Fellow Cit-
izens) will take advantage of the present momentous period,
to disseminate in every class of the community, the principles
of mutual deference and confidence; to revive the harmony
of Society; and to perpetuate, upon the basis of our common
interest, that unanimity, which is essential to render us
happy at home, and respectable abroad.

It will be apparent, likewise, to the world, that whatever,
diversity of opinion may, be produced upon political specu-
lations by an exercise of equal rights, which, as citizens, we
enjoy, there can never arise a difference, in design, or de-
termination, when the object contemplated, is the protection
of the liberties and rights of our Country.

The Philadelphia Brigade.
