Richmond, June 27, 1776.

To the Honourable Provincial Congress:

These do certify the reasons why we, the subscribers, do not sign the resolutions of the Congress, in taking up arms: We do not believe that it is the will of God to take away the lives of our fellow-creatures; not that we come out against the Congress or the American liberties; but whenever we are convinced to the contrary, we are ready to join our American brethren to defend, by arms, against the hostile attempts of the British fleets and armies.
