[Council to Daniel Hughes, Esq.]
We wrote to you on the 17th January respecting the Exchange of
Capt John Harrison and his Crew Prisoners at New York for Capt
Charles Whitehead and his Seamen taken in the Privateer Active
and brought in here. Mr Steward who applied to the Assembly for
the Release of Captain Harrison is here and anxious to have the
former Order carried into Effect. We are at a loss to know what
has prevented it and wish you to have recourse to our former on this
Subject. We are of opinion that it may expedite this Business if a
Parole be granted to Capt. Whitehead and be permitted to go to New
York upon an Engagement that he procure the Release of Capt. Har-
rison in his Stead, and such of Capt. Harrison's Crew against those
of Whiteheads and those mentioned in our Letter of the 29th of
Liber No. 78
