In Council Baltimore 24th Septr 1777.
We have issued the Commissions to the Officers of Captain
Grahame's Company, as you requested. If, as we imagine,
the Fleet is gone quite clear of you, so that Negroes &ca may
not probably follow it, we would have the Militia discharged.
We write to Mr Carroll's Agent in Annapolis about the
Mulatto Man & Boat; if they belong to Mr Carroll, you'll be
pleased to deliver them, if they do not belong to him, we
request you'll have them secured and advertized; The Mus-
quetts &ca we esteem the Property of the Persons who took
them and would either have them divided, or sold and the
Money divided amongst them, as they may agree.
Benja Mackall Esqr Lt of We are &ca
