Response of William Samuel Johnson to Committee regarding his Appointment

Mr. Johnson returns his sincerest thanks to the Honorable General Assembly for the confidence they are pleased to place in him in appointing him agent for the colony in the Mohegan affair.  He finds himself upon reflection extremely involved in business, much complicated, and extensively connected, which it will be very difficult properly to extricate himself from in the short time allowed him for this purpose. Yet, attentive to the voice of his country and hoping for a candid construction of his sincere endeavors to serve the colony, which shall not be wanting, he is willing to undertake this important trust and to execute it in the best manner he can, provided proper appointments are made him for his time, expenses, etc.  But thinks it will be impossible with his utmost assiduity to leave home before the middle of December.

Which he humbly submits to this Honorable Assembly and is Your Honors’ most obedient servant,

William Samuel Johnson
