492 Proceedings of the Council of Maryland, 1750.

Lib. C. B.
p. 422

the Gentlemen of the Council, who are truly Sensible of the
Importance of the Friendship of these Indians. But as It is
not practicable for us by our Authority only, to raise Money
for such Services, and as our Assembly is not to Meet untill
some time in the next Spring, and even then I am afraid very
little can be expected from them, having pressed them before
by Message upon the same Subject, but to no purpose, as
you'l perceive by the inclosed Copy of their Answer to me; I
can only express my Concern that It is not in my Power to
contribute to so necessary an Affair otherwise, than by assur-
ing you, I shall make Use of every Opportunity, I can think
may be favourable, to promote his Majestys Service and Our
Common Safety, and to keep up that good Correspondence
with the Indians which is so Necessary to Us all. I am
Your Most Obedt hble Servant
To the honble James Hamilton Sam: Ogle.
Esqr Governor of Pensilvania -

Extract from the proceedings of the Lower house of

Thursday Morning May 12th 1748. The house taking into
Consideration the Letter from the President of Pensilvania to
the Governor & other Papers relating to the Indian affairs
Resolved that Inasmuch as there has been lately an Expensive
treaty of Peace Settled with this Province and the Six Nations
of Indians which this house cannot from the said Papers appre-
hend the least danger of their Violating or Infringing; there-
fore We cannot Agree to burthen the Inhabitants of this Prov-
ince with any further Charge relating to the said Indians.

Ordered by his Excellency the Governor with the Advice of
this Board that the following Order be immediately sent to
the Attorney General.

By the Governor & Council
18 October 1750

p. 423

Whereas It appears to this Board that in the several Coun-
ties of this Province the Publick and main Roads therein are
not cleared, and well grubbed, fit for travelling, neither are
they twenty feet wide, nor marked agreeable to the Act of
Assembly Entituled An Act for the marking of High Ways,
and making the heads of Rivers Creeks Branches and Swamps
passable for Horse and foot, and that many Persons alter and
change such publick Roads without Leave or License of this
Board contrary to the Directions of the said Act, and to the
great Inconvenience of Persons travelling the said Roads,
