Governor Martin's intercepted letter to Henry White of New York.

New York Congress to Charles Thomson,


The Congress received yours of July 4th, enclosing Governor Martin's letter to Mr Henry White, dated June 13th [see page 16 ante.—Editor], and immediately appointed a Committee to confer with him on the subject. From the answers he gave to the Committee, and a letter received from him (a copy of which is enclosed), the Congress are fully satisfied that Mr White's conduct in this matter has been unexceptionable, and such as becomes the character of a good citizen.

By Order
I am, Sir, &c.,
To Charles Thomson, Esquire.
