In Council Annapolis March 29th 1777.
Sir.
General Smallwood came to Town about the Time of the
Receipt of your Letter, and has been consulted on the Con-
tents of it, he with us is of Opinion, that it is most adviseable
to have the Men inoculated; a Bill is preparing and expected
every Hour to pass, to collect Blankets, so that we have no
Doubt of your soon being furnished with that Article, and
advise you to have a House and other Necessaries got ready
as soon as may be. Our Commissary informs us we have but
seven Vessels for cooking left in the Store, and we have
almost a daily Demand, so that we cannot furnish you. We
see by the Papers, and private Letters confirm the Arrival of
9 to 11000 Arms in Philadelphia. Genl Smallwood will send
up to secure Part of them for the Troops from this State; It
is our Wish, and you know how necessary to keep as many
of our own as we can; we have delivered out as fast as we
could procure Arms, but expect now they may be returned ;
however we inclose you an Order on Mr Winters for 200,
which may be useful in training the Men, and which we expect,
will be returned to him again, relying on your best Care of

C. C.
