The members were unanimous and firm; but they postponed their decision, till it could be promulgated with greater formality. To this end, and in contempt of Gage and the act of parliament, they directed special meetings in every town and precinct in the county, to elect delegates with full powers to appear at Dedham on the first Monday in September. From such a county congress Warren predicted very important consequences. Meantime Boston was not left to deliberate alone.

In September he renewed peace with the Delawares and the Six Nations. Then, with about twelve hundred men from the counties around him, he descended the Ohio; and without waiting, as he had promised, at the mouth of the little Kanawha, for the men from the southwestern counties of Virginia, he crossed the river and proceeded to thattle through the old home of the wolf, the deer, and the panther.
