Wednesday, January 15. 1777.
Council met. Present as on yesterday.

Commissions issued to Peter Beall appointed Captain,
Jacob Ott, first Lieutenant, Michael Ott, second Lieutenant,
and William Conrod, Ensign of a Company of Militia in
Washington County.
Also to Leonard Shryock, second Lieut. and Michael
Tamer, Ensign of a Company in said County.
Also to James Smith first Lieutenant of Captain William
Brown's Company of Matrosses.
Copy of Letter No 106 was sent to Col. Stull, and Copy of
No 107 to Plummer Williams.
Ordered That the Western Shore Treasurer pay to Mrs
Sands (of John) three Pounds five Shillings.
That the said Treasurer pay to Oliver Whiddon four
Pounds ten Shillings.
Whereas the odious Practice of forestalling and Ingrossing
is more particularly at this Time prejudicial to the State by
enhancing the Price of Provisions, so that neither the Army,
on which the Fate of America depends, nor Individuals can
be supplied on reasonable Terms, and the honorable Congress
having recommended to the executive Powers of this and the
neighbouring States to limit the Price of Provisions, It is there-
fore earnestly recommended to all Committees of Observa-
tion, and other well disposed Persons, Inhabitants of this
State, to enquire after and take notice of such as are guilty of
the Offences aforesaid, and return their names, together with
the names of the Witnesses who can prove the Charge, to the
Council of Safety, or to the Justices of the several County
Courts, that such Delinquents may be proceeded against
according to Law.
Adjourned till next Day 10 O'Clock.

C. S. C.
