received by Mr Williams Ok of Cecil on Loan by your Order and
sent down to me for which Mr Williams requested me to grant Cer-
tificates to the Persons who lent it, but not knowing that I had any
right to grant Certificates, I only sent him a Receipt for the sum
received. Since which I am infonn'd the Certificates are to be Issued
by the Western Shore Treasurer and therefore have sent Mr Williams
List, that Certificates may be Issued and sent him to return the
Persons who lent it.
I have not been able to borrow one Shilling in this County on
Loan, either in Gold, Silver Paper or Tobacco.
I shall endeavour to Comply with your Subsisting request as fast
as the money comes into my hands. Shall be glad to have a receipt
for the money by the Bearer hereof
