110 Journal and Correspondence

Wm Ringgold & myself and we immediately ordered all the
powder and sail cloth in the care of the Committee on board
Capt Barry for which you'll receive inclosed his receipt, the
second Escort of Waggons is expected at Town to night by
when I hope the Schooner Resolution will appear, that the
powder &c may be delivered to her out of the Waggons. The
money sent to me by my son for the payment of the wag-
gonage of the powder & other contingent charges did not
reach me until after the arrival of the Waggons that brought
the first load from Chingoteague. they have since been paid off.
I am with much respect Sir,
Your most humble Servt
Thos Smyth


[Stone to Council.]

I send you herewith 40 Barrels of Powder and 54 Stand
Arms the arrival of which I informed you by the post. I have
agreed with the Waggoners for thirty shillings per day each,
going and returning; they ar,e to travel 20 miles per day
going and 25 returning. This it seems is the usual Price
here, tho' I think it very exorbitant. I have paid them £12
each and have informed them they will receive the Balce from
you upon delivery of their charge. Or if it be more agreable
to you, they may be paid here on your certificate. I have
paid £15. 2. 0 for Cartage from Egg Harbour and shall settle
the freight tomorrow, which, according to agreement with
Harrison & Vanbebber is 10 per ct. on the gross sales here,
and Powder which came with ours has sold by the quantity
for £25 p cw which I suppose will ascertain the Rule for the
freight. The Guns came loose and are hurt by it. I had
them put into Boxes to prevent their being further damaged,
two are left out to guard the Powder & others & will be deliv-
ered you. I have thought it advisable to send two men to
guard the powder & arms at 57 per day each. My Brother
Delegates think this mode of conveying these very necessary
Articles to you right, and I hope it will also meet with your
approbation. Nothing since ours by Post. The waggons to
be paid from this day. I am with great respect
Philadelphia July 24th 1776. Gent, your most obedt Servt
T. Stone


[Beall to Jenifer.]

Piscattaway Wednesday July 24th 1776.

doubt an account of our situation from the proceedings of the
