54 Journal and Correspondence

August 17

[Henry Jackson, Lowerferry on Wicomoco River, Somerset County,
to Gov. Lee.]

Sir Last Tuesday I received a Letter from Colo Jo. Dashiell
informg me he was just from Annapolis & was going to send up a
Vessell with Salted Provision, wch wou'd take in any I had ready &
" deliver it to the Governor & Council who are in great Distress
for want of Pork & Bacon " & adds " I know the Governor intended
writing to you by me & I am of opinion he thinks he did order your
supply up, tho he never gave me the Letter." In consequence of wch
I attended at this place to day where I expected agreeable to his
appointment to meet his Vessell but she is not come down the River
I have now ready & shall leave directions to put on Board 456 lb
Bacon & 2 or 5 Barrells Pork & abt 200 lb Bacon I expect the Vessell
will take in on her way down, w'ch is all I expect to get on this River
I have abt 2000t Bacon & 13 Barrells Pork at Princess Ann on
Monokin River wch shall be forwarded as soon I have your Excel-
lencys orders where to send it, which I hope to be favoured with the
first opportunity. In General the Purchase I have made with Cer-
tificates, some people want a little money, shou'd be glad to have an
order on any of the Collectors for this County for abt £2000 wch I
believe will enable me to comply with my cash engagements.

[T. Donellan, Baltimore, to Gov. Lee]

Sir The latter end of last Month I delivered Mr Wm Smith 412
Barrels of Flour which was all of 508 Barrels, then in my Posses-
sion that passt Inspection. Mr Smith did not insist on its being
June, but was content to take any that was sound, unless unreason-
ably coarse. He now informs that it has been inspected in Philadel-
phia & ordered back as unfit for use; shou'd it be offered to me have
concluded not to Receive it without orders from your Excellency.
The Condemn'd Flour will be daily getting worse & unless disposed

of soon, will not be worth Stoic Room.

Your Excellencys Commands of the 7th Inst, did not come to
hand 'till some days after I sent off the Rum wch I hope is safe
arrived at Annapolis.

[Ridley & Pringle, Baltimore, to His Excellency Thos. S. Lee Esqr]

Sir We are favoured with your two letters of 7th & 16th Inst, to
one Matt. Ridley. Inclosed is Invoice of 2 casks shoes & 4 Bales
Blankets amounting to £35265 ship'd in Gilbert Middletons Boat, at
your debit.
We have inquir'd about the Coarse Linens but can find none of
the quality you want, should any arrive we will inform Your Excel-
lency but we despair of making a Purchase unless we are furnished
with Cash.
