114 Journal and Correspondence



by Jiles of not less than Ten thousand pounds, as tis not possible for
me to keep the State business alive without it, there remains a
considerable Balance due to the Millers, Coopers, and others for
Hauling and Manufacturing the Wheat finding Casks &ca which
must be paid or our Credit will be lost, and tis impossible to do
business without Credit, must therefore intreat that my hands be
Strengthened (by Jiles) shall do myself the Honour of waiting on
your Excellency and Honours as soon as I return from Philadel-
phia, with the whole accounts agst the State to this date


[Jno. Sterrett Baltimore to Gov. Lee]

Sir I this Day receiv'd yours of the 19th It gives me pleasure to
find that there is now a probability of expelling the Enemy from
our Bay where they have for some time materially injured our
Trade. I wou'd most chearfully doe every thing in my Power that
might be conducive thereto. The Barge in which Anderson was
taken by Capt Folger I intended to have sold as is Customary to
ascertain the sum to be paid to the Crew But as this might occasion
some detention you'll please fit her out when and as you may think
proper. If she shou'd be taken by the Enemy, Lost or materially
injured when in Your Service I shall expect to receive Payment
agreeable to the present Value to be ascertain'd by proper Judges
which you'll please to appoint.
There will not I believe be any Compensation requir'd for the
time the Barge may be employ'd, I am principal Owner of the
Vessell that Captur'd her and I want none.

[Ben Stoddert, Secry, War Office, to Gov. Lee]

Sir The Board do themselves the Honor to communicate to
Your Excellency the inclosed Resolution of Congress directing
them to take such measures for the march of the new raised Regi-
ment of your State, and by such Route, as they may judge most
expedient for the publick Service
This Resolution is founded upon a letter from Genl Green con-
taining Intelligence he received from New York " that the Enemy
had it in Contemplation to invade Virginia, and attempt the Rescue
of the Convention Prisoners " However improbable this Story may
be, the Board think it best, as it will make but a few days difference
in the march of the Troops, that the Route of the Regiment should
be by Alexandria to Orange Court House and from thence by
Charlotteville to Hillsborough, as this Route will best serve to
cover the March of the Convention Troops, in Case of their Removal,
and they have therefore directed the Commanding officer of the
Regiment to proceed by that direction, as your Excellency will
see by the inclosed Instructions
