254 Journal and Correspondence

Liber C C

No. 22

you are not to exceed the limited Prices. We request you to have
the Bacon Pork, and Flour which you have procured, sent to this
Place, as soon as possible. It is not in our Power to supply you with
Money to make a Purchase of Beef, nor are we requested to purchase
that Commodity. Any Beef that you may receive for Taxes, you
will have pastured and inform us of the Quantity

[Council to Andrew Buchanan Esqr.]

Sir We this Morning received your Letter of the 6th with its
Enclosure and the Letter from the Commissioners of Baltimore
County, covering the Recommendation of Inspectors for that County.
It is impossible for us to furnish you with 4o,ooo£ our Treasury is
entirely exhausted, and it would be of little Avail to give you an
Order upon the Collector of your County, as we understand he has
none in Hand. We understand several of the Lieutenants have exer-
cised the Power of granting Warrants, to distrain the Goods of the
Persons who compose the Classes that have neglected to procure
Substitutes for the 15 p Cent, though the Lieutenant could not
obtain one for that Sum, for this Reason; if the Lieutenant could
not get a Man for the 1 5 p Cent, and it should be his Opinion that
he could not issue his Warrant in that Case for the 15 p Cent, the
Law would be evaded, the Intention of which is, that each Man
should pay according to his Assessment. Besides we apprehend
it is in the Power of the Lieutenant to get the Money, as soon as
he engages the Substitute; for when the Lieutenant agrees with a
Man for a certain Sum, he can issue his Warrant against the Indi-
viduals of the Class for that Sum.
