powder now in the Magazine in this Town is only about 600
wt — that tho' that powder belongs properly to the whole prov-

sary, and they request your Honours permission so to do :

Ordered That the Treasurer of the Western Shore pay to
Capt Thomas Ewing two hundred Pounds on Account of his
Company.
Ordered That the said Treasurer pay to Messrs John Shaw

Ordered That the said Treasurer pay to Mr Richard Ridgely
eight Pounds Currency to pay an Express to Philadelphia.
Ordered That the sd Treasurer pay to Mr Robert Collett
thirty Shillings for painting Gun Carriages.
In Consequence of intercepted Letters received from the
Committee of Safety of Virginia, (Copies of which are inserted
in the Letter Book, and follow No 120) the Council appointed
a Deputation of Two of their Body Messrs Carroll and Hall,
and requested W. Paca Esqr to wait on the Governor with
them, and desire a Sight of his Letter of the 27th of August to
Lord Dartmouth, And in Case the same could not be pro-
cured, to ask his Parole that he would not leave the Province
till the Meeting of the Convention. — The Gentlemen report
that they waited on his Excellency accordingly and desired a
Sight of the Letter; to which he answered that he had sent
away the Copy of that Letter with all his Papers of Conse-
quence, last Fall, and could not remember the Particulars, but
observed we might be convinced there was nothing of a nature
unfriendly to the Peace of this Province, because the Troops
going to the Southward were not ordered here: he asserted
also upon his Honour that he had not endeavoured to enflame
the Ministry by traducing the Characters of Individuals, some
he had spoke well of, others he had recommended as Sufferers.
