We inclose you an Order for Captain Stricker's Company
to march down to Baltimore Town, instead of coming to
Annapolis, if you think it necessary: when the Man of War
leaves Baltimore Town and comes down this Way, you will be
pleased to order them to Annapolis. Nothing new has hap-
pened since writing you last Night. Stricker has been already
ordered here, your Express may be directed to meet him.
