[Council to William McBride, Commissary of Somerset County.]

We request you to supply the Militia ordered from Dorset and
those that may [be] ordered from Somerset County with all necessary
Provisions, keeping a distinct Account thereof, for the Purposes
mentioned in the Act to compel the Payment of Taxes in Somerset
County.

Ibid.

[Council to George Dashiel, Esqr.]

We enclose you a Copy of the Law to compel the Payment of the
Public Taxes in Part of Somerset County, to which we refer you we
have wrote to the Commissary of Somerset to furnish the necessary
Supplies of Provision.

Ibid.

[Council to Lieutenant of Montgomery.]

By a Resolution of the General Assembly we are empowered if we
think necessary to order a full Company of Militia from your County
to assist in guarding the Convention Troops. We are not acquainted
with the Numbers necessary to guard the Prisoners and therefore
have wrote to the Lieutenant of Frederick, whom we have appointed
to command the Guard informing him, that we should write to you
to order a full Company of Militia, from your County to march
to Frederick Town. On his Application you will order them on his
Duty without further Instructions.

Ibid.
p. 53

[Council to Col. Baker Johnson.]

Enclosed you have a Resolution of the General Assembly directing
a Guard over the Convention Troops to releive the Guard from
Virginia. We wish you to take the Command of the Guard and to
order on Duty a full Company of the Militia from your County, we
shall not order any other Company on Duty until we hear from you,
as Col. Wood wrote to us he thought one hundred and fifty men with
their proper Officers would be sufficient, the Company now ordered
with Col. Weltners and Capt. Browns Corps will exceed that Number
