of the Council of Safety, 1776. 519


[C. Beatty to Council.]

Frederick Town Dec. 10th 1776.
Gent.
The Barer hereof Mr Boon (the overseer of the Gun Lock
factory) waits on you in order to get some money to enable
him to carry on the factory, for it cannot be supported any
longer without.
Mr Hanson who keeps the books is not at home so that I
cannot get to see them in order to draw for the money, the
factory is entitled to, but I am clearly sattisfied that it must be
about 400 Dollars by the acct rendered, and the locks now in
the factory, which sum please to forward by Mr Boon. We
have now in the factory 156 locks completely finished as will
appear by the Inclosed certificate for nearly two months past
I was compelled to take money on Intrest to support the
factory or let the hands go idle. It is not in my power to
borrow any more for that purpose here. — pray dont fail send-
ing the money or I shall be compelled to sell locks to pay the
money that I have taken up and let the servants shift for
themselves, which will be a great loss to the publick. I am
Gent. Your ready friend & well wisher
C. Beatty.
