of the Council of Safety, 1775-76. 223


trest for want of Field Officers, as there is an Immediate neces-
sity for them, he would be glad Blank commissions ready
Signd coud be sent up for one Battallion. Think of it, and if
it can be done, we will pitch on proper Persons here. They
are in want of Lead about 1500 will do, they will be glad you
will dispatch a Cart with it to Hammonds Ferry. They would
be glad you coud spare the Large Rifles.
I am with respect Genl yr mot obt
Sert Charles Carroll.
Baltimore Town March 8th 1776.
To the Honble the Council of Safety of Maryland.


[Carroll of Carrollton to Dorsey.]

Sir. I left the Council of Safety yesterday in the afternoon
after the man of war & her Tenders had passed the mouth of
our River, if any place is in Danger of an immediate attack I
think it will be the Town of Baltimore and on talking with
their Committee of observation I find they have men enough
but they are very badly armed I think therefore it will be
proper that you march your Battalion or all the companies of
men in it that have serviceable arms with all expedition to this
Town, unless you have express directions from the Council of
Safety to go with your Battalion to some other place they will
confirm this order of mine
Balto Town March 8th 1776. I am &c. C. C.
To Colo Thos Dorsey :
