402 Correspondence of Governor Sharpe.
Letter Bk. IV of the last Session were not printed seperately as usual I have
taken the Liberty to inclose His Ldp the Gazette in which they
were published which was not my Intention when I men-
tioned them to His Ldp in my Letter. The Surveyor of Fred-
erick County assures me that neither he nor either of his
Assistants know or can hear of any Parcel of tolerable Land
in the Inhabited Parts of the County which contains the
quantity of 5000 Acres & is not already taken up by some
Person or other, so that I am afraid it will not be possible to
have another Mannour laid out & reserved there unless a
Tract of good Land shall be discovered large enough for that
Purpose beyond Fort Cumberland & His Ldp chooses to have
a Mannour laid out in that distant Part of the Province. In-
closed I send you Thirds of Bills of Exchange for £125. 0.7
which I remitted to you the 27th of March; lest both the Origi-
nal & Duplicate of that Letter should be miscarried. I like-
wise inclose you the Pensa Gazette of the Ist Inst which con-
tains all the News that hath lately come to Us from either the
Northward or Southward unless that Genl Amherst hath sent
orders to the Commanding Officer at Louisburg to demolish
the Fortifications of that Place & proceed up the River St Law-
rence with the Troops that garrisoned it.

[Sharpe to Baltimore.].

23d May 1760.
My Lord
The Letter which Your Ldp did me the honour to write to
me the 8th of Jany last & which was did to me two Days ago
hath given me the most sensible pleasure, nor is it in my power
to express my thankful Acknowledgments for that Letter &
the Token of Your Ldp's Esteem & Favour that accompanied
it in Terms equal to the Joy which the Receit thereof afforded
me, & to my Gratitude; I shall therefore only beg Leave to
assure Your Ldp that the very kind manner in which you

p. 76 have been pleased to signify your Approbation of my Conduct
since I have had the honour to serve Your Ldp hath made
me extreemly happy, & that it shall be my constant Study &
Endeavour to act in such a manner for the future as may con-
firm Your Ldp in the good opinion you have been pleased to
entertain of me & convince others as well as Your Ldp that I
am with the utmost Respect My Ld Your Ldps most grateful
& most devoted Servt.
