desired Success. This Board are of Opinion that the Tax of fifteen
and five per Centum, as the Case may be, is to be levied and collected
from such Classes as fail to furnish Substitutes or Deserters. The
Commissions for Militia Officers are enclosed agreeable to your
Request. You will have the Militia marched to the Head of Elk
where they are to rendezvous and where they will be provided with
Arms and every other Necessary for Marching &ca

[Council to The Worshipful the Justices of Cecil County Court]

Gent. The enclosed Commissions were issued agreeably to your
Request as intimated by Mr Williams's Letter of the 26th May

[Council to Nathaniel Potter, Esqr.]

Sir. Yours of the 23d Inst, we have this Day received and are
Sorry to observe that you should have so unpromising a Prospect of
procuring the Articles absolutely necessary for furnishing and Sup-

zens of this State would, at this Crisis, withold these necessary Com-

Resort, a Seizure. We hope and expect the Farmers will readily
vend their Wheat, Flour &ca and receive Certificates or wait a Short
Time for their Money which we shall be enabled to pay as fast as
Taxes come in. We think you ought not to exceed 22..IO..O for
Wheat 67..IO..O for Flour, 375 £ for a Barrel of Pork and 6os. for
a Pound of Bacon; these are high and generous Prices. It is alto-

and still Trust that you will be able to make your Purchases on the
Credit of this State. The Wheat you receive we wish to have manu-
factured into Flour as fast as possible and would readily send you
the Nails, if we had them. We have not supplied Mr Wederstrandt
with any Money lately. You will frequently inform us of your Pro-
ceedings in your Purchases
