[Council to General Gist]

Mr Keeports informs us he has a Serjeant belonging to the con-
tinental Army employed in the Service of the State, who is extremely
useful in making and repairing Cartouch Boxes and from the Diffi-
culty of procuring so skilful and faithful workman of the kind, we
apprehend the Public will suffer considerable Inconvenience if he
is ordered to join the Army. We therefore should take it as a Favor
if you will give Directions for his continuing with Mr Keeports.

[Council to Brigadier General Hamilton.]

We wrote you by Col. Wood in Answer to your Favor of the
31st Ult and this Day we are to acknowledge the Receipt of Yours
of the 8th Instant. We lament the disagreeable Situation the Con-
vention Troops are under for the want of a regular Supply of Pro-
visions of the meat Kind; and can assure you it is the earnest Desire
and Wish of this Board to render their Captivity as comfortable as it
is in our Power; for that Purpose we have repeatedly desired Mr Mur-
dock to use every Means possible to procure the necessary Supplies
and to obviate every Ground of Uneasiness and Complaint.
Mr Murdock's last Letter informed us of a considerable Supply he
had in View, nor do we doubt of his procuring it Shortly. Every
Means in our Power shall be exerted to render the Situation of the
Convention Troops as agreeable as possible.
