Proceedings of the Safety Committee in Rowan County.

Salisbury, 22d Augt, 1776.

Present, Three Members of the Town Com: and Three of the County.

Whereas by a Resolve of the County Committee dated the 7th Instant, Ambrose Mills was to be confined in the Criminals' room in the Common Gaol—And it now appearing that the said Mills is in a very low state of health so that by so close confinement his life may be much endangered, It is therefore the opinion of the said Members of Committee that the Gaoler ought & is hereby required to admit the said Ambrose Mills to any part in said Gaol, at least untill his health is recovered and there safely kept untill farther order is made thereon.

Wm SHARP, Secy County Com.
