Liber C. B.

No. 24
p. 55

[Council to Mr Thomas Beale.]

Whenever a Detachment of continental Troops are obliged to
remain in George Town, and are without Provisions and Forage we
think it necessary that you should supply them with so much as will
serve them until they can march to the next Place where Provisions
are regularly issued. We think the Provisions ought to be returned
to William Dent agreeable to the General Morgans Order and request
you to deliver what may be due him after deducting the Quantity
he has received; but as it may be attended with Inconvenience to
deliver the whole immediately, you will deliver it to him at different
Periods most convenient to yourself and as he may want it.

March 7
Liber No. 7!
p. 81

[Council to Daniel Hughes, Esqr.]

The Return of Capt. Harrison from Captivity gives us Oppor-
tunity of exchanging Whitehead late Commander of the Active for
Capt. Alexander Murry who was taken some Time last year in an
armed Brig and permitted to return hither on Parole. It is much
our wish to serve Capt. Murray on this Occassion and therefore
request you will take the speediest Method of effecting his Exchange.

Ibid.

[Council to Capt. Alexander Murray.]

It will give us Pleasure to promote your Exchange and to that
Purpose, we have written to Mr Hughes Commissary of Prisoners
for this State to accomplish it in the most expeditious Manner.
Whitehead late Commander of the Active is proposed, the Mode the
Commissary alone will determine, the Rank we apprehend will apply
as he commanded a private armed Vessel and yours came within
that Description. It is however advisable that you consult Mr Hughes
