of the Council of Maryland. 335

[Council to Delegates in Congress]

Gentlemen In order to enable the Extra Regiment to proceed to the
Southward, immediately, we have been under the Necessity of turn-
ing over to the Continental Treasurer in this State, two thousand
Pounds of the new State Emission, amounting at 40 for i, to eighty
thousand Pounds. We request you to obtain a Warrant in Favor of
Capt Archd Colder Paymaster of that Regiment, on Mr Harwood
(that he may be justified in having paid it at our Request) for that
Sum, in Part of the Monies appropriated agreeable to a Resolve of

Congress in June last to the Supply of the Military Chesr, anrl the

Exigencies of the War in the Southern Department

[Council to Donaldson Yeates Esqr]
Sir We apprehend the Flour at Appoquiminink in the Delaware
State, to be Part of what was obtained & forwarded by Messrs Gilpin,
Coale & Cox, Commrs of Cecil County. The following is a Remark
on their Return, "David Wilison at Appoquiminink Landing received
about 320 Barrels of Flour of which he forwarded about 200 Bar-
rels, has the Remainder in his Store, but delays sending it until he is
paid for the Freight due." By a Letter from Mr Josiah Johnson
Commr of Kent County, 2 1st Augl last, we find he had delivered a
Quantity of Grain and some Flour agreeable to the Directions of the
Act of Assembly, at Duck Creek, and had applied to Mr Hollings-
worth to receive it, which he did not think Proper to, at that Place.
We have Reason to believe Flour has been sent by some other
Commrs to Duck Creek and from thence forwarded to the Army
& do not know the Reason why Mr Johnson's was not likewise sent
on; at any Rate, the State having sent the Flour to Places where
there should have been Continental Officers to receive it, cannot be
Subject to a Loss by a Delay and it is our opinion it ought to be
received and considered at the Property of the United States, at the
Time of Delivery there.
