In Council of Safety, Philadelphia, November 14th 1776, 12 o'clock, Thursday. : Sir, we have certain intelligence that the enemy has actually sailed from New York five hundred ships for this city, and that great numbers had got out of the Hook on 12 o'clock yesterday and were steering towards our capes: as you value the safety of your country, and all that is dear and valuable to men, we most earnestly solicit your immediate assistance, and that you will march all your battalion to this city without the least delay. As nothing but the most hasty marching of the militia will enable us to make a stand, it is hoped that your battalion will manifest their usual spirit, and come forth on this trying occasion with the alacrity that will do them honour. If you can collect any shovels, spades, grubbing hoes and pitching axes, beg you will bring them forward and the people shall be paid for them a full price. / By order of council, Thomas Wharton, Jun. president
