[Tho Price Frederick Town to Colo Thomas Stone, Annapolis]

Dear Sir I yesterday received yours of the 9th instant and have
this day been with the Hatters of this town who I think can furnish
about 500 hats in three weeks at the price of eighty Dollars pr Hat,
two or three hundred pair of Shoes may be had from the Shoe-
makers by that time at 100 dollars and I beleave Country made
linnen for two or three hundred Shirts may Procured by same time
at about forty dollars pr yard these are the prices Asked perhaps
linnen may be bought for something less. If those Articles will
Answer, the sooner the Tradesmen gets Orders the greater Quan-
tities may be had. Any orders from your board respecting the
Above or any thing else within my Power shall be punctually Com-
ply'd with I shall always endeavour to conduct myself in such man-
ner as will have their approbation, and shall esteem it a particular
happiness to deserve and continue to have your Friendship.

[Tho. Price, Frederick Town to the Honorable the Governor
and Council]

Gentlemen I wrote by King who brought me your instructions
for an imediate purchase of provision that I wished to be instructed
what price to give for Salt provisions and wether I must Regulate
My Conduct by the prices deriected in the Act of March Session, to
Recieve wheat and Flower in leiu of the 28 pounds of Tobacco, in
My Present purchace, I have taken Due pains to get as many Farm-
ers to threshing wheat as possible and shewed them the Several Acts
of Assembly Respecting those Matters and have incouraged them
to expect £67.10. pr hundred for Flower & £22.10 a bushel for
Wheat, these terms have induced many of them to go to threshing
and from appearances some hundred Barrels of Flower may be got
in about three weeks a part of the people will take Certificates but
some will have money many Both as they want it for the purpose of
paying their present assesment not more than one third being paid
at this time, and allso to pay their Substitute Money
My not having it in my power to Fix the Price Certainly much
Retards the Buisiness and I think if those prices are not alowed
