APPENDIX C
MEETINGS OF THE COMMISSIONERS OF THE UNITED COLONIES

Below are listed the official meetings, regular and extraordinary, of the Commissioners of the United Colonies. Such get-togethers of several of the Commissioners, for administering the funds for the "Indian Worke" or treating with Cromwell's commissioners in 1654 (Frothingham lists this as a regular meeting, which, however, was not an official meeting of the Commissioners of the United Colonies) are not included. Triennial meetings were adopted in 1672. There were no meetings during the Dominion period, and the meeting of 1689 did not fall into the triennial sequence because of the interruption in New England government from 1686-1689. Intercolonial conferences involving Commissioners of the United Colonies (e.g., the N.Y. Congress of 1690) are likewise not here considered as meetings of the Confederation.
