122 Journal and Correspondence


[Meroney to Council.]

I have exerted myself endeavouring to furnish my Com-
pany with Guns and Blanketts but find it impractable
without money. I applied to Mr Hanson and could receive
but seventy pounds, insufficient to furnish one Tenth. Mr
Garah Harding the Rearer is a Gentleman may he trusted
with any sum. Three hundred and fifty pounds is the sum I
wish to receive by the Bearer.

Gentlemen. I am of oppinion that a less sum than is
mentioned in the above letter will not furnish the above
Company with arms and blankets..

[Price to Council.]

Upper Camp Prince Georges 26th July 1776...
Gentlemen. If you expect frequent intelligence from this
place you must send down for it, it being impossible to get
horses here. I have been under the necessity of sending
home all the Militia except fifty and it was with much difficulty
I could keep them, indeed their Distress seems to be very
great for most of them are poor people whose Crops are
suffering and many have not any dependence but their Labor.
I received an express from General Lewis last night. The
following is a copy of my answer to him which will give you
as true a state of matters here as possible I found it absolutely
necessary to keep the Waggon and horses brought from
Annapolis not knowing what hour it might be necessary to
move the Cannon and also to draw them back for it will not
be possible to get any here. However if you think it best and
will send me directions I shall act accordingly.
I am Gen'
Your very Humble Servt
Thos Price

St. George's Camp July 26th 1776.
Sir. The enemy comes on St. George's Island in the day
time to get water and wood and in the evening retire on
board their ships: they have no manner of Fortification on the
Island. The Fleet lays from the North East side of St Georges
