of the Council of Maryland. 249

[Council to Matthew Ridley Esqr.]

Sir We received a Letter from Mr Chase dated the first of this
Instant, informing us you would let the State have 345 Blankets
and 500 pair of shoes. We are much in Want of those Articles and
agree to take them on the Terms mentioned in that Letter, a Copy
of which you have enclosed. If Continental Money and State Money
should appreciate before Payment, you are to make a proportional
Deduction; the Depreciation and Appreciation to be ascertained by
comparing the Exchange between Gold and Paper Money at the
Time of Contract and Time of Payment. Capt Berry has Orders to
receive the Blankets and Shoes, and will apply for them in a Few
Days. Mr Chase informs us you would undertake to procure a
Quantity of Course Linen suitable for Shirts and overalls imme-
diately. We want 2000 Yards of Dowlas from iod to I2d p yard or
other Linen of like Quality, and four thousand Yards of Oznabrigs,
from 7d to gd p Ell, and request you would supply us, as soon as you
possibly can, and let us know when we may expect to be furnished

[Council to Capt. Robert Berry]

Sir You are desired to apply to Mr M. Ridley of Baltimore Town
for three hundred and forty five Blankets and five hundred Pair of
Shoes, purchased of him by this Board, which you are to bring to
this Post, with the Rum in Mr Donnellan's Hands, or as much
thereof, as may be brought with Conveniency.
