of the Council of Maryland, 1777. 293

such a Resolution and if it is too prolix or complicated for
their Attention, to give you the Power of drawing on your

Abstract from the Treasury in Baltimore, or have Money
lodged in our Treasury for the Purpose. We are very unwil-
ling to remove the Officers appointed by the Assembly from
one Regiment to another, and have not, therefore appointed
Mr Hindman in your Battalion. From Colo Stone's Letter we
believe there's no Difficulty in drawing the Pay for the Part of
your Battalion now at Camp. As Things are circumstanced
it cannot be expected to have the Officers and Men now
returned; we presume the not settling their Accounts imme-
diately cannot subject you or them to any Blame and if there
should be any Loss, it will not light on you. We think it very
likely that you will have the whole of your Battalion together
soon, and therefore we have declined adding any Pieces of the
other Companies to yours, which would be creating new Diffi-
culties in your Accounts.
Colo Price's Adjutant returned without the Drummer, we
request you'll send him over, it is very disagreeable to have
Contentions about such Trifles and more so to have the same
Thing before us over and over again. Genl Srnallwood is not
yet come, we shall, if necessary, have the Sense of the
Assembly, on the old Troops. We are &ca
Colo William Richardson

[Council to H. Hollingsworth.]

In Council Annapolis 17th June 1777.
We have not heard whether you have sent forward any
large Guns, we are anxious about them as Genl Washington
and every body else has Confidence in them, if you have any
by you, send them forward, we are apprehensive they will be
wanted before they get them. We are &ca
Colo Henry Hollingsworth.
