of the Council of Safety, 1776. 121


[Council to Hanson.]

To John Hanson Esquire
Sir. The Instructions from the Council of Safety (as you
will observe) only respected Musquets. But we desire you
will purchase Rifles upon the best terms you can. Be pleased
likewise to pay for those purchased by Capt Mantz, and by
the first opportunity we shall order and send you any Money
you may find necessary.

No. 80.

[Council to James Tilghman.]

To James Tilghman Esqr
Sir
The Business before this Board daily becomes more impor-
tant and consequently requires as full a Council as may be,
we hope therefore before this reaches you that your Line with
your cousin is settled and that it will not be inconvenient for
you to attend your Brethren immediately: we are the more
earnest in making this requisition as Colonel Plater intends to
Saint Marys in a few Days and then we shall be left with only
four Members. Mr Smith pleads the necessity of staying at
his ship yard about the Building the Gondola, in excuse for
his non attendance & Mr Hands has resigned his seat.

No. 81.

[Council to Baltimore Committee.] No. 82.

To the Committee of Observation of Baltimore County
Gentlemen.
The Alacrity shewn by your Committee in exerting itself in
the Common cause, in which we are all engaged, it is hoped
will be attended with the success it merits, and which is so
exceedingly necessary at this alarming and important juncture
of time, as without Arms and Blankets little prospect of a
favourable Campaign can arise, if the Troops were ever so
numerous. Agreeable to your request therefore, and to expe-
dite the Business, we have transmitted to you by Captain
Yates, the Thousand Pounds, the Disposal of which you will
be pleased to render us an Account.
No Account has yet been sent to this Board of the Expendi-
ture of the Thousand Pounds advanced at the time of the
alarm occasioned by the Otter, omitted we suppose thro' the
hurry of Business and therefore desire you will furnish it by
the first opportunity.
26 July 1776
