We received yours of the 18th Instant, and as the Draft has been
suspended in other Counties of this State Cecil County is entitled
to the same Indulgence. We therefore hereby suspend the Draft to
be made in Cecil County, until the 6th Day of June next. The
Accounts for Provisions furnished the continental Soldiers and
Militia must be passed by the Auditor General and an Order to go
from this Board on the Treasury, which the Sheriff may receive for
Taxes, no other Person than the Auditor can Settle such Accounts.
It is not in our power to supply you with either rigging or Sails, if it
was we are authorised to do it and of Course could not with Pro-
priety make the requisition to Congress you ask, the Assembly will
we expect meet on to morrow to whom the Application might be made

We have received your Letter of the 2 1st Instant relative to the
Conduct of Stephen Dorsey and William Bickey [Birkey?]. We re-
quest you to procure all the Evidence in your Power that can Sup-
port the Charge against Cromwell's respecting his general Conduct
and Supposed Connexion with the Enemy, and send them immedi-
ately with Groves Dorsey and Bickey [Birkey?] to Annapolis that
the charge may be clearly investigated as Circumstances will admit
of. We approve of your Conduct in not delivering the Flour pur-
chased by Cromwell to Dorsey.
