48 Journal and Correspondence

August 14

the most pressing Terms to request your Excellency & Council to use
every possible measure which may facilitate the Purchases required
of your State, And Order punctuality, in delivering & forwarding
the same.
I have great reason to doubt the want of Spirit and Exertion in
many of the Agents who are Impowered to Purchase, which I hope
will be a sufficient Apology for my being so pointed on that head.
Shall take it a particular favor to have a Line from you inform-
ing what your prospects are respecting supplies.

[U. Forrest to Gov. Lee]

Sir The Bearer John McKoy who served faithfully in the third
Maryland Regt & has had the Misfortune to loose his Leg, is upon
furlough, and endeavouring to get to his friends in St. Mary's, he
has no money and represents that he has recd no pay for between
two and three years. I am sure that he cou'd not have recd any for
a Considerable Time, from his being detached; I believe your Excel-
lency and their Honors, have in some Cases Similar with his, Orderd
Sums of Money to be paid. I wou'd beg leave to recommend him
as a Man who Merits Indulgence & favor
