of the Council of Safety, 1777. 59

Congress. If the Bermudian goes on in the manner you say,
he will be so far from fixing the market price, that he will
probably get no clearance. We have published an order
against forestallers and Ingrossers, which you may see in the
last paper, to which we refer you. We request you send the
Galley and all her hands under Capt Davies' care as soon as

them supplied with what they want. We are desirous of

have on all occasions exerted their utmost influence to pre-
serve the peace of the State, and will continue to do it. We
are much concerned that we have cause again to trouble you
on behalf of Melchior Keener, who hath lately been very ill
used as he alleges, by some Soldiers of Capt Nathl Smith's
Company, and others who came without any authority or war-
rant that he knows of, to search his house, and committed
divers irregularities, two of the Soldiers were David Welch
and Harry the drummer, as he informs us. the Whig club
we take it for granted had no hand in this riot. We have
