390 Journal and Correspondence

judge, prudent. Perhaps too many of the People in Frederick
who are connected with those in Baltimore, may be in the

same Humour, but we flatter ourselves, great Numbers are
of a different Sentiment. We shall order a Detachment of
our Matrosses from hence with two Field Pieces, and have
to Day ordered 10 Companies of Militia from St Mary's,
Charles and Calvert to relieve the Militia at Camp and, yes-
terday, the first and second Class from Washington, with the
same Intention. We hope as all those have long been
ordered to hold themselves in Readiness, they will, very soon
begin their March and may be confided in to do the Business,
if necessary in their Way. Advise us frequently of the situa-
tion of Things, as we may be able to give you timely Assis-
tance, if necessary. We are Sir &ca
P. S. If not already done

[Council to B. Mackall.]

In Council Annapolis 3d Octr 1777.
Sir.
It is quite uncertain whether it may not be necessary to
keep up a Body of our Militia at Camp, and the Time of those
who are now there being nearly expired, we request you will
immediately order the first & second Class of the Militia of
your County to march. They will do well to take each of
them a Blankett, we have none with which we can supply
them, and, such as can, a Gun. The Arms, Tents & Camp
Kettles & Accoutriments in the Use of those at Camp, will be
put into the Hands of those who are to supply their Place,
but, probably, as is too common, some of the Arms may be
carried away and others abused, so as not to be immediately
serviceable.
Through this City will be the best Rout, and we shall be
glad that an Officer from each Company should come to us
here before the Militia get to Rawlings's Tavern. We wish
all Expedition to be used as, eventually it may be necessary
to form a large Body of Militia, or what is indeed to be
wished our Affairs may be in such a Situation as to allow us
to dismiss them on the Way. We are &ca
Benjamin Mackall Esqr
Lt of Calvert County
