[Council to N. Smith.]
In Council 4th August 1777.
Capts Dorsey and Furnival have received Orders on the
Commissary here for a sufficient Quantity of Linen &ca for the
Use of their respective Companies. With Regard to Haver-
sacks and Knapsacks, we presume they will not be immedi-
ately wanted, and therefore, at present, we do not think it
necessary to give any particular Directions about them. If
you should think the Stores you mention to be at Baltimore
Town, can be left there with Safety, or removed to the Fort,
we shall have no Objection to your removing the Guard to
that Place at your Pleasure. We have given Lieut Judah an
Order for £800, for the Purpose of reimbursing you the
Money you have advanced in the Purchase of Beef and Bacon
for the Use of the Matrosses and for the Purchase of Flower
and Provisions and shall immediately send up to Baltimore
twelve Barrels of Beef and three Barrels of Pork for those
Troops. We are Sir &ca
Majr Nat. Smith.
