of the Council of Maryland. 351


Murdock, Commissary of Frederick County has our Directions to
supply you with what Pork and Flour he has on Hand, when Appli-
cation is made by you. It is not in our Power to supply you with
any Continental Money; it is expected some Measures will be taken
by the General Assembly to promote the Circulation of the new
Emission, and shall lay your Letter before them. We have requested
Colo Forrest to send up such of the Soldiers of the Extra Regiment,
rejected by the Board of War, as are able to march at this Time.
The Pay of the Soldiers in Capt Reid's Company, is the same with
those in the Line. Mr Jacobs likewise has an Order for the Cloath-
ing desired.

[Council to Andrew Buchanan Esqr. Lieut of Balt County]

Sir The Enclosure is a Copy of Governor Jefferson's Letter,
received this Day by Express. We are not inclined to believe the
Possession of Baltimore Town is an Object with the British Army
now in Virginia, yet, as the Fleet and Army still remain in that
State and its Neighbourhood, and their future Designs not clearly
indicated by their past Conduct, we wish, in this State of uncertainty
and Doubt, that you may not be wholly unprepared for their Recep-
tion, nor, on the other Hand, put the State to Expense in Prepara-
tions to frustrate their supposed Intentions. Your Orders to the
Militia in Baltimore Town and its Vicinity, to hold themselves in
Readiness, at a short Notice, we think the most eligible Measure
under present Circumstances.
