[Benj Mackall 4th Calvert County to His Excell'y,
Thomas Sim Lee Esqr]

Sir I expected to have had the Pleasure of waiting upon you
this week to deliver up the inclosed Commission; but having been ill
for many weeks past, and now so much indisposed that I can't under-
take the Journey to Annapolis to attend the Court of Appeals with
safety, have taken the Liberty of inclosing it; and request that some
other Person may be appointed to that Office. I think it contrary to
the 30th Sect: of the Declaration of Rights that I should hold the
Commission and therefore must beg Leave to Resign, have also in-
closed, Clare's and Hobbs's Enlistments. One David Randall was
some time ago enlisted in this County, but, soon after got wounded
in the Arm. as he is now almost well, have given Orders for him
to march immediately to Annapolis.

[Geo Plater J Henry Junr John Hanson Philadelphia to Council]

Gentlemen From the last return of the Clothier Genl dated in
August, there appeared to be about one thousand suits of Clothing
on hand; besides which, there are in the hands of the different pur-
chasing Agents, Cloath enough for 35000 Suits, linen for 20.000
Shirts, Baize (which was a Considerable time ago ordered to be
Milled) for 14000 Blanketts a great Sufficiency of Shoes, and
Variety of Articles for the Summer Season, such as linen Overalls
Hunting Shirts &c. Out of the Stock which was on hand in August,
the new raised Maryland regiment has been supplied. The deficiency
of Clothing, which is necessary to be made up depends principally on
the Supplies expected from France, which it is more than probable
will not now arrive in time, be assured we shall allways endeavour
to have such Justice done our Troops, in the distribution of what
Cloathing there is now on hand, and also of any that may hereafter
be procured, but as most of what is now on hand, lyes in the Eastern
States, and will be transported to Head Quarters, it is probable the
Army there will be first supplied.
We have laid your two letteds respecting General Gate's drafts,
before Congress, who have not yet come to any determination on the
Subject.
