32 Journal and Correspondence

C. S. C.
No. 98.

[Council to Richard Mason.]
Jany 9th 1777.
Sir. We here send you a copy of a confession made by
James Larey before Mr Hayward one of the Justices of the
Provincial Court, in which confession he alleges that several
persons were concerned with him in taking salt from Mr
Chamberlaine, we conceive the Assembly will not intermeddle
with offenders, but have them tried by the Courts of the
Countys in which offences are committed.
We therefore request you to call Larey before you and all
the other persons mentioned in Larey's confession and make
them recognize for their appearance at the next Court to be
held at Talbot County there to be tryed or discharged by due
course of Law. We are &c.
Mr. Richard Mason.

[Jesse Hollingsworth to Council.]

Sirs. Baltimore Janry 9th 1777.
This day the Ship was sold at 4400 Pound. I bid as far
as 4350 and as you never told mee any thing about her, I
thought best not to go to far. I wrote you sum time ago
about her, but not receving your answer to that matter I did
not now how to act. I shall lode the Brig as fast as posible
with tobaco, flour and bread, the carpenters are overhalling
her, I have pork and beef enuf for the Defence, and to spare
for other vesells.
I wated on the Counsill of war about the Cabbie from Capt.
Larkin hammons but they would do nothing in it without
Capt. Hammond's consent, and hee would not agree to part
with his cabbie at any rate. So that there could bee nothing
done. Pleas write if I must purchase any more vesells. I
consulted with Capt. Joseph Nicolson who was on the spot,
and hee aproved of my condukt as to the Ship,
from your Humble Servant
Jesse Hollingsworth
The Honourable Counsill of Safety

[T. Johnson, Jr., to Council.]

Gent. January 9th 1777
I inclose you a letter which I received from Colo Bruce and
shall be glad you'd send a commission for Charlton, the very
little care taken of our men last fall has a bad effect on the
minds of many I am Gentlemen
Your most obedt Servt
