He found his house crowded with insurgents...He declared that he had it in his power to raise 10,000 men, & he shewed a roll or list of a considerable number, among which were some old continental soldiers...that they all stood ready to turn out at a minute's notice; that his object was to destroy the present constitution...that he was sure of victory..." and more (see).
Four pages, very nice condition.
