248 Journal and Correspondence

C. C.

Colo Stull is disinclined to do though he intended to ride with
Johns to see if he could not procure Waggons by exerting his
personal Influence in a private Way. We are very sorry that
any Intimation of Compulsion should be necessary in a Busi-
ness so easy and so essential to be performed, and would by
all Means have it avoided, if possible. If Colo Stull's Exer-
tions, for which we thank him, have not proved effectual, we
request you will use your Endeavour severally to procure
Waggons for the few Guns only immediately wanted by the
Frigate offering a full Value for the Carriage and giving a
Certificate of the sum to Mr Samuel Purviance of Baltimore,
who will pay, on the Service being done, on Sight, if you
find Waggons cannot be got on these Terms, we request
you'll press Waggons sufficient for the Purpose giving them
Certificates on Mr Purviance for the Money, but we repeat
that we wish Compulsion to be avoided if it can, and used
only to prevent the Frigates lying to the Injury of the Cause
and Reproach of our State. We are &ca
John Stull, Josh Sprigg
& Docf Schenebely


[Council to Deputies in Congress.]

In Council Annapolis 12th May 1777.
We are informed by Mr. Green that he contracted with the
Council of Safety for the same Sum in Proportion for printing
our last Bills of Credit, as the Congress allowed for printing
the Continental Bills. The Service is done, and we do not
know what Allowance to make. We shall be much obliged
to you if you will enquire and write us what was allowed by
Congress, as we suppose the Account is in the Treasury
Office. If it cannot be come at, by recurring to the Account
itself, probably Hall & Sellers might give the desired Satis-
faction. We are &ca
The Honbl Deputies
in Congress.


[Council to J. Hanson.]

In Council Annapolis 12 May 1777.

We send you by Mr Thomas Beatty £300, to pay up the
Arrears, and the future Subsistance of the Prisoners in Fred-
erick Town and are Sir &ca
The Money drawn out by the Clerk & sent.
John Hanson Esqr
