general sentiment of the people here that Capt Squires should
not be supplied with provision & I hope he will not be per-
mitted to seize the new england sloop.

Balt. Town March loth 1776. Charles Carroll

[Beall to Council.]

Bladensburgh 10th March 1776.
Gentlemen, on the receipt of your letter of the 8th instant
I had ordered my Battalion to rendevous about half way
between this & Queen Ann. But as we yesterday evening &
this morning recd at this place 51 whole & one broken barrel
& twenty kegs of gun powder & twelve muskets, I have
altered the place of rendevous to this town. As by your
orders I am to hold my Battalion in readiness to march at a
moments warning I shall keep them or such part of them as
can be tollerably armed, on duty till I receive your farther
orders thereon: I hope by the return of this messenger I
shall receive your orders as well with respect to my conduct in
keeping the whole or a part of the Battalion on duty, as like-
wise with respect to the disposition of the powder, as it may
not be altogether safe to keep the powder near the navigable
waters; if there should not be an immediate call for it, I
think Snowdens iron works would be a proper place to lodge
it, as it will be nearly convenient to Annapolis Baltimore & this
place.
I am Gentn your most Obedt Huml Servt
Josa Beall.

C. S. C.
