Under date of June 6, 1643, the following order appears in the Record of the General Court of Plymouth:- 'It is ordered and concluded by the Court, that Mr Edward Winslow and Mr Willm Collyer shall haue full comission & authoryty, in name of the whole Court, to subscribe the articles of confederacon (now read in Court) wth the Massachusetts, Conectacutt, and New Haven, and to subscribe the same in name of the whole, and to affix thereto the comon seale of the goument.' The Acts of the Commissioners of the United Colonies of New England, now printed, being part of the New Plymouth Records, are contained in two folio manuscript volumes. It appears to have been the practice of the Commissioners at their meetings to put in writing their acts or conclusions, and to sign them.
