find at Richmond to take his Trial at then approaching Court for
Treason committed against that State. Cot Bayly is apprehensive
that the Testimony will be incomplete from the absence of Wit-

that he was taken 2 years or more past in this Bay in Arms against
us, and that he was one of the Number who boarded and took a
Vessel in this Bay a little below Annapolis And submit to your
Excellency the Propriety of making Application to the State of Vir-

[Ben Stoddart, Secy War Office to His Excellency Govr Lee]
Sir There being no Resolve of Congress to Justify the issuing of

continental provisions to soldiers wives when absent from their

Husbands, The board have ordered the issuing Commissaries to
discontinue the practice.
Compassion to those poor people who are in this situation, belong-
ing to your State, induces the board to mention this circumstance
to your Excellency, in order, that if it should be Judged expedient,
some State provisions may be made for them, as has been the custom
in some other States.
The board conceive that if the situation of any particular State,
should occasion it to send men who have Families, into the Field in
part of it's quota of Troops, should be at the expence of the State,
at least, in the first instance it should be the business of the State to
offer them relief as being best acquainted with the Characters &
circumstances of the People. & if proper to be brought into Account
against the United States, it may be done hereafter
