250 Journal and Correspondence

[Council to Benedict Calvert.]

In Council Annapolis 13th May 1777.
Sir.
Mr Saint George Peale having been appointed by the
General Assembly Register of the Land Office and commis-
sioned and qualified agreeable to the Constitution and Form
of Government, and given Bond and Security, as far as Cir-
cumstances can be complied with agreeable to the Old Acts of
Assembly; is now entitled to the Possession of the Land
Office and the Records and Papers belonging to it. We think
it proper that two Lists of the Books should be made and
signed by yourself and Mr Peale, one to be kept by you and
the other by him. We should not have wrote to you on this
Occasion, but that we are informed you decline giving up
the Office to Mr Callahan, on Mr Peale's Request, on an
Apprehension that the Land Office was to be conducted under
your Direction as formerly; We think there is more Propriety
in Mr Peale's receiving the Office in Person, against which,
we hope, you will make no Objection. We are &ca
Benedict Calvert Esqr

[Council to Capt. Kilty.]

In Council Annapolis 13th May 1777.
Sir
We shall give the Capt who we may send down for your
Ship, Orders to call on you before he goes on Board. As we
are circumstanced, it would be improper to attempt getting
out of the Capes, nor would we have you remove the Ship
down, as was first proposed. We are &ca
Capt Kilty.

[Council to Jenifer and Hooe.]

In Council Annapolis 13th May 1777.
Gent
We are much obliged by yours of this Day. There's no
Vessel belonging to the State ready to sail, nor any other, so
nearly ready as that at Alexandria, but we shall send an
Extract of your Letter to Baltimore for the Government of
private Adventurers. The Blankets and Cloth are very
desirable, especially the former; the Blanket Law not having
fully answered the End proposed by it, wherefore we will send
a Cart or Waggon for the Blankets in a Day or two, and, if
you'll send us a Sample of the Cloth and the Price, we will
take that too, if you are not too hard in your Terms.
Messrs Jenifer & Hooe. We are &ca
