1736, Letter to a member of the late General Assembly
Unsigned letter to a member of the past General Assembly of New York. This letter protested the suspension of liberal assemblyman Rip Van Dam and
failure appoint him as next governor by then Governor Cosby (on his deathbed). Instead, Cosby appointed royalist George Clarke as governor. This
letter was printed by John Peter Zenger in 1736. Of note, Zenger published the liberal New York Weekly Journal newspaper (Van Dam had been a founder in
1733) and was prosecuted in 1735 by Governor Cosby for some of his publications. (Source of the digitized copy: New York Historical Society Library).
