336 Journal and Correspondence

C. C.


[Council to J. Hanson.]

In Council 16th Augt 1777.
We inclose you a Copy of a Resolution of Congress and a
List of the Carolina Prisoners in Frederick Town, as given in
to the Governor when He was last up there. We are willing
to enlarge the Limits of these Prisoners to three Miles from
Frederick Town, a Distance we think fully sufficient for agree-
able Exercise or to afford an Opportunity of making the Con-
tinental Allowance go the farthest for their comfortable Sup-
port; but, as the Paroll signed by some of them is not so defi-
nite and precise as all Parolls ought to be, we think it is proper
that each should sign a Paroll, agreeing with this Enlarge-
ment, give up the old Counterparts and take Copies of the
new. We are &ca
John Hanson Esqr


[Council to Capt. Cooke.]

17th Augt 1777.
Capt. George Cooke
The Intelligence received this Morning from Timson, makes
it necessary that we instantly prepare in the best manner we
can, for Defence or to enable us to assist our Friends. If the
Enemy should design to send any considerable Force up the
Bay, there will, as it appears to me, be no Place of Security
for your Ship, but at Baltimore where too, she may eventually
assist in the Defence of that Town. The Gallies at Baltimore
we wish to be made as serviceable as may be. You are there-
fore to run the Defence within the Boom at Balt, put what of
your Men you can in the Gallies. Shew this Instruction to
the Officers on board them, which they are to consider, as a
particular Order to them to come down with their Gallies.
You are to furnish what Guns or other Necessaries you can
from the Defence, to the Gallies and Majr Smith is also
requested to give them what Assistance he can, you will also
come down in one of the Gallies yourself We are &ca
Capt George Cooke
