534 Correspondence of Gov. Horatio Sharpe, 1754-1765.

to run South West, and Westerly between Eighty and one
hundred Miles, so that if the South Branch should be fixed
to be the Fountain Head of Potowmack as it certainly is the
Meridian Line, takes in a fine Country for Lord Baltimore,
which he would Lose by fixing the North Branch to be the
Fountain of Potowmack. I formerly reversed the Meridian
from the Fountain Head of the North Branch forty miles
between the Branches of Monongahala and Youghyoughyany,
which are Branches of the Ohio River." this Intelligence
seems to be very Circumspect and intelligible, I therefore on
the part of Lord Baltimore seriously recommend it to your
Consideration and that you will enforce the truth thereof in
the run of the North Boundary Line at your meeting the
Pensilvania Commissioners, as far as the Meridian of the
Spring Head of Potowmack, the South Branch; what I wrote
you in mine last April concerning, seems Now not perfect
matter. Relative to Mr Bacon for his publishing the Pro-
vincial Acts, your proposition of payment is Right, of your
mention of disagreement of the two Houses, I conceive none
can Effect you; His Lordship is well Satisfied with your
Conduct in all concerns, and he rests satisfied you have con-
scientiously done your best endeavours to discharge your
Duty to the King and to him and the Province. Regarding
Mr Young, he is Felo de se, destruction by his own 111 Con-
duct, and Breach of Trust in Money concerns, he has none
but himself to Blame; by his dismission Colonel Henry de-
serving has Place, his Trust is safe. Your Induction of the
Reverend Mr Dowee into a living will give the Lord Arch
Bishop of York pleasure and My Lord. The two Clergy Mr
West and Mr Lawder by you recommended there can be no
doubt of their being acceptable to his Lordship, and I will
note them in Course as next to Benefice. As to Mr Smith
and Mr McLochlin I recommended for favour, the first was
by request of Mr Kay here, the latter by Mr Lloyd the Receiver
General, had I been acquainted in the least with the Objec-
tions by you recited, my good will to Mr McLochlin he would
not a had. With respect to Mr Nicholson, the Engagement
for him is obtained by My Brother in Law Mr Crowe, 'tis
My Lord's desire you should provide for him and you'l oblige
me much, for his friend we much Esteem, Besides his near
Relationship to us. With Regard to Old Mr Kay he certainly
merits distinction of favour, he has been long of good Be-
haviour to the Proprietors, Especially to the Late Lord in
his Legislative Capacity, he was sincere and steady; I hear
there is a Vacancy in the Council, Mr Thomas Dead, your
recommendation of him to succeed at that Board I conceive
no doubt of his Lordship's consent, so soon as I have intelli-
