[Council to J. Chalmers.]

In Council Annapolis 17th March 1778
Lanamore Rumney who you brought hither as a Recruit
says that he has not made Choice of the Regiment to serve
in, and that he does not know that any of the others have
made their Election. Rumney seems rather inclined to serve
in the fifth Regiment. Major Steward who passed his Receipt
for the Recruits, is not here. Adjutant Edgerly says that the
Men were asked if they had any Objection to serving in the
second Regiment and that they had none. It may be neces-
sary, in determining which Regiment these Recruits are to go
into, to have well ascertained whether they did or did not
agree to go into the second Regiment and we request your
Affidavit of what passed: and to prevent any Dispute here-
after, you are to mention in the Inlistment what Regiment
and Company the Recruits chuse to Serve in.
Mr John Chalmers We are Sir &c
