212 Journal and Correspondence

C. S. C.

March, so that with Griffith's Battalion, we shall have near
four thousand men with you in a short time — this exceeds our
proportion for the flying. Camp, but we are sending all we
have that can be armed and equipped, and the people of New
York, for whom we have great affection, can have no more
than our all. Inclosed you have a list of the several Battalions
& Companies.
We depend in case of Invasion on being supported power-
fully by our neighbours in Pennsylvania New York & the
Jerseys, besides having part of our own Troops sent back.
Our Gentlemen met for the first time after the late Elec-
tions on Wednesday the 14th M. T. in the Chair. most of
their time since meeting has been taken up in Controverted
Elections. Queen Anns, Prince Georges Worcester, lower
District in Frederick set aside; the members have been all
Discharged upon the principle of their having broke the
Resolves of the late Convention with regard to the qualifica-
tion of the Voters. Charles was Controverted or rather it
appeared on the face of the return that they had adjourned
the Polls to a different place than that appointed by the late
Convention, it was not set a side for that Reason, the
adjournment being made by Consent of all the Candidates
and Voters; — some other Elections are talked of, but we
know not whether there will be petitions; — Ann Arundel for
one. in Kent County they began right and proceeded so
some time, till interrupted by a Mob — the Judges broke up,
and are ordered to finish the Election according to the old
plan of Qualification.
We shall loose a valuable correspondent we fear when you
leave Philadelphia; our wishes are that you should stay; but
we submit to your determination and that of the Honourable
16th Augst 1776.

P. S. These Companies are not all fully armed and
equipped, but we hope soon to Collect enough.
August 16 1776.
