                  330 Proceedings of the Council of Maryland, 1715 / 16.


              c. P. beseiged, the which will soon follow, the French Carry all

                  before them, and unless we secure the Peace of the Empire,

                  we must soon joyn with the Emperour in another War wth

                  France. The King of Sweeden is not returned but still in

                  Adrianople, Marlbourough with his Dutchess, is also in Ger

                  many, and the Report of his Returne, was a Fiction. The

                  Party run as high in England, as ever, & the Low Church,

                  as he says, are more numerous, but out topt by the unfair

                  Proceedings, of the other Party No Dutys are taken off as

                  Yet either of French Goods in England or of Ours in France,

                  the true Articles of Peace are not Published, and the Peace,

                  be it as it will, gives but small Satisfaction Dunkirk is not

                  rased, nor will it be in all appearance, the Pretender is still in

                  France, the Dutch and Spaniard are not agreed, and con

                  stantly make Prizes of each other, hence the Dutch dare not

                  sail in the Mediteranean, and are forced to Employ the Eng

                  lish in those Parts, the D: Daumon is the French Embassa

                  dor but will soon be Succeeded by another, many of Our

                  Soldiers are disbanded, Six or eight thousand are sent for


                    I am afraid You will scarce be able to read, much less

                  understand, what I have writt, my tyme Presses, and I am

                  forced to press on, You have it as I received it, and giving

                  the due allowance, for Party Prejudice, You may guess what's

                  true & what's exaggerated; the Capt. says Mr Hyde, will

                  send Mr Duell, no more into these Parts, Mr Dare is his onely


                    Abraham the Overseer has his Accts for four Hogshs of

                  prime Tobacco, they fetch him in all 3 ll that is 15s p Hogsd

                  one with another, but then his Charges were two pound two

                  shillings more than last Year, his Freight being 12 ll p Tonn,

                  & Average amounting to twenty two Shillings p Hogsd.

                    They tell me here Dry or pickled fish Collation, is not

                  allowed by You all, I can't but wonder thereat, it being every

                  where tollerated, for my Part I can't tell what to do, whether

                  to allow leave for flesh, some days in Lent, is not that left to

                  each one in Particular, for my part I think quod indulgeri

                  Possit Propter inopiam Piscium Potiri Casei lactis &Ca Quam

                  facile dispensatio Flandria non Solum privatis at omnibus

                  si hyems fuerit Saeverior et Pisces Salsi suscipi non Potuerint

                  Your opinion, & further Instruction, wou'd be very accepta

                  ble, by the first opportunity.

                    I think to make my Exercise and recollection next Month,

                  so hope to see You towards the latter end thereof: Mr Hall

                  left two of my Books at Mr Hills, Pray desire him to send

                  them hither, by the first Occasion, or to deliver them to You.
