of the Council of Maryland. 265


[Council to Capt. Geo. p. Keeports]

Sir We expect that about 260 Soldier Shirts will be delivered
by Mr Wm Smith on the Order of Mrs Lee. As Mr Griest has Direc-
tions to send some Vessels down for the Transportation of the
Troops to the Head of Elk, it will be a good Opportunity of sending
them down as well as the Overalls which we wrote for yesterday.
We request your Attention to this Business

Liber C C
No. 22

[Council to Mr. Isaac Griest, Balto.]

Sir The Regiment extraordinary now at this Post, are nearly
ready to march to the Northward; we prefer sending them by Water
to the Head of Elk, and, as sufficient Number of Vessels cannot be
procured here, request you will immediately, upon Receipt of this,
procure by Hire or otherwise a Sufficient Number of Vessels to
transport 300 Men from Hence to the Head of Elk. We have Reason
to believe you will meet with no Difficulty in getting the Vessels on
Hire, but should it be otherwise, you have a Power enclosed to
impress.
