The Patriots of Hopkinton, R. I., 1776

Contributed by Hon. Edwin R. Allen, Town Clerk of Hopkinton.

Editor of the Narragansett Historical Register.
     Dear Sir: -- Thinking your readers would be interested in knowing who were the patriots of Hopkinton during the struggle for independence, we have thought best to send you the following list which we believe comprises the brain and the best portion of our citizens at this time, together with the document to which they affixed their ever to be remembered names.

Hopkinton, Sept. 19 A.D. 1776.

      I the Subscriber do solemnly and sincerely declare, that I believe, The War, Resistance, and Opposition in which the United American Colonies are Engaged, against the Fleets and Armies of Great Brittain, is: on the part of the said Colonies, Just: and nesasary; and that I will not directly or indirectly afford assistance of any sort or kind whatever to the said Fleets and Armies during the continuance of the present war, but that I will heartily assist in the defence of the United Colonies.
