Liber C B
No. 23

[Council to Commrs of Cecil County]

Gent" We are this Day informed by a Letter from Baruch Wil-
liams Esqr that a Quantity of Flour which was procured last winter,
is detained at Appoquiminink Landing. This Article is much want-
ing with the Army; we must request you to use your utmost Influence
to have the Flour forwarded with all Expedition, and we shall pay
the Amount of Storage &ca which has, unjustifiably, occasioned the
Detention, as soon as we are informed of the exact sum, for which
you will give an Order on us. Adopt any other Method by which
this Business may be accomplished with more Ease.

[Council to Baruch Williams Esqr.]

Sir By the late " Act to procure a Loan " the Agents are directed
to deposite the Money &ca borrowed, with the Treasurer; but, as
Matters are circumstanced you may apply the Money procured by
you, in Virtue of that Law, to purchase Provisions, and, when its
convenient, you may obtain an Order from this Board, for such Sum
as shall be applied to such Purpose. We can, by no Means consent
to your buying Wheat and Flour, at the extravagant Prices given
by the Purchasers from the neighbouring States. Our Instructions
to the several Commissaries have uniformly been, not to exceed
67..IO..O «p Cenl for Flour, p Bshl for wheat 375 £ p B" for
Pork & Beef and 3 £ ptt for Bacon. These Instructions were to gov-
ern you in your Contracts, and we cannot avoid thinking you will
be more Successful than you imagine. We are induced to form this
Opinion from the abundant Crops of the present year, from the
real Scarcity of Money and, above all, the generous Prices offered.
The Enclosure is a Line written to the Commrs of Cecil County, to
have the public Flour at Appoquiminink, sent forward to Camp
