[Council to Delegates in Congress.]

We had the Honor of yours of the 13th Current, and lament that
it is not in our Power to supply you with any Money. The Treasury
here is exhausted, we have some continental Money in the Treasury
of the Eastern Shore, but the Communication cut off by the Ships
opposite our Harbour prevents us from supplying you from thence
in Time as before we shall be able to convey a Letter for the Purpose,
the Money will be exchanged the Moment it is in our Power you may
depend that we shall most chearfully transmit the Money to you.
