60 Journal and Correspondence

August 25

purchasers who are able to lay down the Cash gets wheat much
faster than I can. I have got some from Doctor Davidson who de-
sires to know if he can be furnished with Medicine out of the State
Store for the amount; some Gentn desire to know what I shall be able
to allow of the new Emission, I shall be glad to know what I may
offer of the New emission when it comes out. Some Gentn will lett
me have their wheat on engaging to give them the markett price at
the time the money is paid they say tis hard to furnish the wheat and
lay out of the Cash and not receive the price going at the time of
payment but I have refused to make any such contract without I
have yr instructions. I know not what to offer of the money to be
Struck as some desire to wait and receive that. I hope yr Excellcy
will instruct me as soon as possible what to offer and whither I may
engage to give the markett price (to those who will furnish the
Wheat) at the time of payment

[Jno. Reid, Capt Fort Fredk to Gov. Lee]

Sir I received your Excellencys order on Mr Abram Faw in
Frederick town for twenty suits of Cloaths, on application to him
he cou'd only furnish me with Cloth five shirts & three Hatts in Con-
sequence of which I sent a copy of your order with my Receipt for
Articles recd from him, to Captn Keepot in Baltimore hoping it woud
be in his Power to fill up the order & furnish the residue but as the
order was not immediately to him from your Excelly he cou'd not let
me have the Cloathing.
The great necessity the men are in for the want of Cloathing has
obliged me to send down Lieut Magruder to see if your Excellys
wou'd be kind enough to grant me an order on Capt. Keepot for the
remainder of the order.
I am sorry to inform your Excelly that I have not been able to
procure a single Recruit since my last owing to the extravagant
prices given to Soldiers for the regt Extraordy but am still in hopes
of making a few in the fall & winter
Inclosed is Mr William Pile's resignation Since which Mr Gabl
Jacob has Acted; upon what your Excelly said to Colo Rawlings re-
specting him, Your Excelly will be pleas'd to send his commission.
I shoud be very happy if your Excellency woud grant me an order
for a suit of Cloaths for myself & officers and also some Stores the
Stores Colo Rawlings will furnish me with if your Excelly ap-
proves of it.
Sir finding the Appointmt I recd from the Governor & Council
of Lieut in your Compy wou'd interfere too much with my Private
affairs must decline accepting & hope youll receive this as my resig-
nation I am Sir with esteem your Humble Servt Wm Pyle
June 1st 1780 To Capt. John Reid
