[Council to N. Smith.]

In Council Annapolis 9th May 1777.
Sir
We find on Examination, the Circumstances concerning the
Money left in the Hands of the Committee are a good deal
perplexed. We intend to be in Baltimore soon, and, whether
we touch that Money or not, give Directions as to what may
appear to us immediately necessary, a Well will certainly be
so, and we desire you would hire People and have a good one
finished as soon as you can. If Capt Gailbrath nor the Commis-
sary can give you an Account of the Stores we are desirous
you should take an Account yourself of what you take into
your Care, that merely delivering up the Stores may not be a
Settlement of the Account of them. You will, as you pro-
pose remove them to the Point, if you judge that the safest Place.
Inclosed you have an Order to furnish you with Linen
for Hunting Shirts and Overalls for the Artillery Companies
in Baltimore. We have given Mr Dorsey a Captain's Com-
mission as you desire, we have not filled up the Lieutenancies
as your dropping the Matter with the Recommendation of Mr
Dorsey makes it desirable to see you before we make any
further Appointment. Mr Handy who has been very strongly
recommended to us, in a marching Regiment, is desirous of
serving in Dorsey's Company, and we are inclined to gratify
him with such Post as may be most proper in all Circum-
stances. We are Sir &ca
Majr Nathanl Smith.

C. C.
