of the Council of Maryland. 3

since my last I have petitiond the Governour & Council to Get the
use of a contl [ ?] Gaily which lay at Matompkin (deserted by the
Capt & Crew) for a Droger for the Ship, I dont mean to put her full
load in [until] she Gows over the Barr & then send the Remainder,
out by the Gaily.
I have desired in my petition that a Capt. & Crew may be fur-
nished, to the Gaily as there is Verry Great Danger of the Enemy
making an attempt to set fire to the Ship, however I do not Expect,

the latter will be complyed with, as the Legislature of this State are
Exceedingly Backward in Every matter of that kind, they are verry
contemtible in the Eyes of the people here, they keep two Captial
Ships up at Richmond, where thers no call for them & no vessells
down at the capes but 2 lookout boats as they call them, which have
some swivels mounted I have seen one whale boat, with a few men
without Arms, Chase them for life boats [ ?]. Such is the protection
the Valluable Trade of Chesapeake receives from the State, there has
been upwards of twenty prizes taken lately in the bay by small boats,
however they were all Gon out with their Booty before I crossd
the bay
