392 Assembly Proceedings, May 24-June 22, 1768.

accounts, but afterwards lost or mislaid so that no allowance was
made him in the journal passed last session
June 17.th 1768. Hor° Sharpe

M.r Ringgold brings in and delivers to M.r speaker, the following
address.
To his excellency Horatio Sharpe esquire governor and commander
in chief in and over the province of Maryland.
The humble address of the house of delegates,
May it please your excellency,
Upon examination, we don't find that the late assembly, gave any
gratuity, or reward to any of the subaltern officers, except Resin
Beall, Burr Harrison, Barton Lucas, Alexander Somerville, and
William Lynn. The three first were considered, not only as behaving
very bravely and adventurously, but for having been much wounded,
and suffering greatly thereby. M.r Somerville was considered, not
only, as behaving well, but on account of a considerable expence he
was at in raising and subsisting some recruits, until they got to the
frontiers, for which he had never been reimbursed; and M.r Lynn,
exclusive of his good services, set forth that he should entirely lose
his pension in the Chelsea Hospital, by being in the service of this
province, unless he could go to England, to get reinstated, and that
his distressed circumstances would not permit him to go unless as-
sisted by the assembly. We don't make the least doubt of M.r
Gorrel's being very worthy and of his having behaved well ; but as
no such particular circumstance, at present, appears to have attended
his case, we have thought proper to refer the matter for further
consideration, that if any particular matter should appear to us, in
future, we may be at liberty to consider it
