[Council to David Stewart]

January 27th 1777
Sir. We received yours of the 26th January by Mr Muir,
and shall be glad to have the state of your account as soon as
convenient, that it may be laid before the General Assembly,
th.e proportion you are to retain in your hands is two thirds
of all the prizes, and effects sold, that were taken by the
Defence. Had the men not received pay they would have
been entituled to one half, but they having been constantly
paid are entitled only to one third under the Resolves of
Convention. We are, &c.

Ship Lydia be got ready with all expedition. When Captain
Walker wants money for the Gondola he ought to apply here,

will get bread from out of the Stores belonging to the Public,
her Beef and other provisions you will be pleased to furnish
out of that bought for the State. We have wrote Mr Stewart
the Marshall. As to slops to be furnished Captain Cooke's
people, we should be glad you would undertake it, and keep

are to pay you, and no charge is to be made by you against the
State, unless it be necessaries for the Ship's outfit. We are, &c.
Mr. Jesse Holingsworth.
