Philadelphia, January 291*794.
[Whole No. 514.]
Mr. E. Rutledge reported from the
committee on privileges and ele£ion9, to
whom was referred the confederation of
thepropriety of Dr. Jacob Robert Brown'®
retaining his feat in this house, as a mem
ber thereof, which was read and ordered
to be taken into immediate consideration,
which being read through, is as follows,
Report, that m obediencfc to the or
ders of this house, the committee fat as
soon as this house adjourned, and having
required the attendance of the said Dr.
Brown, they informed him " that a com-
mittee to whom was referred the business
of examining into, and ascertaining the
truth of a report, that an armed force was
levying within this state, by persons under
a foreign authority, without the permis
sion, and contrary to the express prohibi
tion of the government of the United
States, and of this state had reported,
that they had- enquiry ref
pefting the truth of the said report, and
that they were perfectly fatisfied from
the information on oath, of divers cre
dible persons, that he, Dr. Brown, had
received and accepted a military com
miflion from Genet, minister plenipotenti
ary from the republic of France, autho
lizing him, among others, to raise and
organize troops, within the states of A
Your committee further informed the
said Dr. Brown, that by the 2iftfe&ion
of the lit article of the conftitutron, it
was declared, " that any member of the
legislature, who (hould accept of any
place of profit or trust, under a foreign
power, ihould thereby vacate his feat."
To this information, Dr. Brown an
swered, " that he had not accepted of
any commiflion, either civil or military,
or any place of profit or trull, under any
foreign power."
That he had sworn to support the con
stitution, and knew as a member of the
house, that the acceptance of a commif.
fion under a foreign power, would vacate
his feat. That true it was, a foreign
commission had been proposed to him,
and a paper stating the pay, rations, pro
portion of spoil, numbers of men to be
raised, and battalions, divilions of land,
and other particulars, had been put into
his hands for his consideration, which
paper he kept for some time, and on the
day on which he was to give his answer,
he declined accepting the commission, and
refufed to have any thing to do in the
That moreover, to fatisfy his wife,who
was much averse to his being engaged in
that affair, and who pressed him to burn
the paper above mentioned, he threw the
fame into the fire, where it was consumed
in her presence, and in that of another
person who had come to receive his final
answer. Your committee are therefore
of opinion that the said Jacob Robert»
Brown, be admitted to his feat. The re
port being read chrongh, a motion wa»
made and seconded, that the report be re
committed for further inveftigation,which
was agreed to.
Mr. E. Rutlcdge reported ftom the
committee on privileges and elections, to
whom the report on the cafe of Doctor
Brown Vas recommitted, for the purpose
of ascertaining the length of time of
which he was poflefTed of the paper men
tioned in the report, and also to ascertain
the day on which he burnt the fai'd pa
The report stated, that they had Dr.
Brown before them ; that lie said, « the
day on which he burnt the paper, was on
Friday or Saturday previous to the day to
which the legislature flood adjourned; hut
with refpeet to the length of time which
he was poflefTed of the said paper, he de
clared his reluctance to mention, as he
