Sir A Letter from you, to Mesrs Gray, Somervell & Chase was
some time past put into my hands, relative to the Collection of Flour
&c. for the army; I have only to inform the Committee, that about
the first of February last I wrote to the Governour & Council letting
them know, that there was neither Flour, Wheat or Rye to be got
in this County as I could hear of. I also Inform'd them that I could
get some Indian corn and requested them to furnish me with linnen
to make Baggs to contain about 20 or 30 Bushels for the more
Speedy collection (the roads then being excessive bad) and also
desired their Instructions. The above Letter was Carried to An-
napolis By Mr James Morsel our late Sheriff and I having never
receiv'd any Answer, Concluded that Corn was not wanting and
therefore have Collected none.
