Liber No. 78

[Council to John S. Brookes, Esqr.]

We have received your Letter of the 22d Feb. and as soon as
Mony comes in from the Collectors or by any other Means, your
Application for it shall be remembered, we hope for some speedy

vision made for such an Event, we think it proper that a Part of the
Flour saved from the Vessels should be reserved for the use of the
Militia and have requested Col. Barnes to call on you for such
Quantities as he may think necessary, which you will be so obliging
as to deliver on his Order.


[Council to Col. Barnes.]

We are of opinion with you that a part of the Flour saved from
the Vessels that were forced on shore by the Enemy should be re-
served for the Militia if there is any Prospect of their being called on
soon into Service, of which you are certainly the best Judge and
therefore we leave it wholly to you and have requested Major Taylor
to deliver to your Order such Quantities as you may think necessary
for that Purpose.
