To the Honourable the Council and House of Representatives for the Colony of New Hampshire To be Conven'd at Exeter in Sd Colony on Wednesday the 5th Instant--

Pursueant to the within precept; we have taken pains to Know the Minds of the Inhabitants of the Town of Bedford, with Respect to the within Obligation, and find None unwilling to Sign the Same Except the Revernd John Houston, who Declines Signing the Said obligation, for the following Reasons, viz.

Firstly Because he did not apprehend that the Honble Committee meant that ministers Should Take up arms as Being inconsistant with their Ministerial Charge

2ndly Because he was already Confin'd to the County of Hillsborough therefore he thinks he Ought to be Set at liberty before he Should Sign the Sd obligation.

3rdly Because there is three men Belonging to his Family already Inlisted in the Continental army.
