which must be the case if the law is stricklv executed. To aleviate
this approaching evil, I petition to Your Excellency & Council, that
I may be permitted to receive the fifteen Pounds apt & Militia fines,
in Wheat or Tobacco at the prices stipulated by Act of Assembly,
or certificates for Grain seized last winter & Spring, and account
with the Lieut' of the County, with any persons accts you may order
me to pay too, as I collect, instead of the Cash, or any other mode
but collecting that which, they neither have, nor can obtain, which
you may deem best for the publick Good, if within my power shall be
faithfully Executed.

[George Washington, Headquarters Bergen County to His
Excellency Govr Lee]

Sir I have been honored with your Excellency's favor of the 10th
inclosing Copies of the several laws passed by the Legislature of
your State, for procuring the supplies of Men, provisions and Car-
riages required by the Honble the Committee of Cooperation in con-
junction with me. The readiness with which these laws were passed,
and the pointed attention which your Excellency seems determined
to pay to the due execution of them are happy presages that they
will be speedily and fully carried into effect.
I have the honor to be with the highest Respect and Regard Sir
Your Excellency's Most ob' and humble Servt
Go Washington

[Pat. Sim Smith, Calvert County to His Excellency The Governor
in Council]

Sir Since receiving my appointment as Commissary of purchases
for this County I have taken every Step in my power to procure a
Supply of Salt provisions for the Army, but fear the Quantity I
shall be able to get will be very small, not exceeding a thousand
weight of Bacon in the whole, there is no Salt Beeff or pork to be
had. this scarcity arises from the number of Vessells detained in
Patuxent by the Ice last winter the Captains of which purchased all
the Pork and Beeff they Could possibly get in the County.
For the Bacon I am asked ten Dollars p pound, part of which
Certificates will be taken for the residue must be paid for in Cash.
I wish to be informed if I am to give Certificates or apply to the
Treasurer for them to pay those who are inclined to take them,
& if convenient shall be glad to be furnished with some Cash by
the first oppertunity as I shall want it in the course of the next
week, I can't at present ascertain the sum but should there be more
sent them sufficient to pay for the Bacon will apply it towards pur-
chasing wheat as I am promised a considerable Quantity as soon
as it can be got out of the Straw
