[Council to Dorsey and Onions.]

In Council 4th June 1777.
We now want, for the Public Use, the Cannon and Swivels
you agreed with the late Council of Safety to make, and
desire to know whether you have them ready for Proof, agree-
able to your Contract. We are sorry to be obliged to remind
you of this Business, not having received a Line or Message

[Council to Col. Richardson.]

In Council Annapolis 4th June 1777.
Capt Handy tells us that he understands from Majr Smith
that he got 400 Shirts, 400 Jackets & Breeches and 100
Coats. We now send a Boat to Balt for 100 Tents, which we

ready made Shirts 6 ps Osnabrigs to make about 300 Overalls
& 40 or 50 Camp Kettles, we would send more Stuff for
Coats, but our Stock will not allow it; the Boat shall, as soon
as we get the Things in, proceed to Cambridge. We approve
your Design of sending the Sick & Baggage by Water, but it
is out of our Power to send you Vessels for that Purpose, you
will therefore endeavour to obtain them. We can furnish you
with Powder & Lead and, we believe, with Cartridge Paper,
but we have no Stock of Cartridges made, nor is there any
Body employed for making them, as we know of; the Conti-
nent ought to furnish the Ammunition and if you'll send us
an Estimate of the Quantity, we will endeavour to get it from
the Public Stores in Baltimore, it is much more agreeable to us
to do so, than to supply it and Charge it. We do not think it
can be expected that the Officers should find Horses for
Expresses and therefore think as they will be necessary, you
