STATE OF NEW HAMPSHIRE.

 

To whom it may concern:

This writing witnesseth that I, John McLane, Governor, in accordance with the provisions of the Joint Resolution relating to the preservation and publication of portions of the early provincial records and other state papers of New Hampshire, approved August 4, 1881, and by virtue of the authority thereof do hereby authorize Albert S. Batchellor, as Editor of State Papers, and on behalf of the state, to collect, arrange, transcribe, and superintend the publication of the original articles of agreement enュtered into and subscribed by citizens of New Hampshire in the several towns, by the signatures to which those who espoused the cause of indeュpendence, and those who refused to do so, are indicated and distinguished, these papers being known as the Association Test. The material above described shall all be included in a single volume, which shall be in conュstruction and appearance, as nearly as may be, uniform with volume 29 of the state Papers series.

There shall be included in said work such explanatory notes, citations, tables of contents, indexes, introductory statements, and supplemental papers, to be made a part of the volume, as may be deemed useful and appropriate.

This I deem proper to be done, and these instructions are given in accordance with the authority vested in me, as Governor, by the provisions of the joint resolution relating to the preservation and publication of portions of the state and provincial records and other state papers of New Hampshire, approved August 4, 1881.

Given under my hand, in triplicate, at Concord, this 21st day of December, 1906.

JOHN McLANE, Governor.
