278 Journal and Correspondence

C. S. C.

information with regard to Mr Temple falls much short of the
great Expectations raised by the Public Papers, and by private
Letters heretofore received; be pleased to send us the earliest
Intelligence which way Lord Howe steers his Course from
Boston, that if he comes this way we may be prepared to
receive him.
P. S. If the Lead be not already sent off please order four
Ton to Chester Town for the use of the Eastern Shore.

[To Charles County Committee.]

To the Committee of Observation for Charles County.
Gentn
We received a Letter yesterday from Mr Mackall one of the
Committee of Observation for Calvert County advising us that
they had not been supplied with Powder and Lead from your
County agreable to an Order of the Council which was made
and transmitted you the 23rd of January. Delay upon such
Occasions may be attended with dangerous Consequences and
it will be impossible for us to direct the military Operations
with any Probability of Success unless our Requisitions are
complied with. Calvert is greatly oppressed and ought not
to be without a proper supply of Ammunition. You may be
assured it is our Wish to provide equally for the Defence of
every Part of the Province and that we will not reduce your
Stock below your Proportion. It appears by a Report of the
Committee appointed by the last Convention to enquire into
the State of the Arms and Ammunition that there were 1 205 1/2
lbs Powder in your County, and from them there have been
but 250 sent to St. Mary's, so that you have now 955 1/2
remaining. We desire you will therefore immediately dis-
patch the Barrels of Powder and Lead ordered to Calvert.
When a further Distribution is made we will supply you with
a full share.
