[John Smith Brookes to The Honble The Governor & Council.]
(p. Mr. Basil Ray)

I had ordered my matters so as to sett off with my Cattle as yester-
day for Frederick Town, agreeable to your former orders, but
meeting with Mr West he desired I would alter my rout and have
them drove immediately to Annapolis, that it was the determination
of the Council; in Consequence thereof I now send them forward
under the care of Mr Ray 27 in Number the greater part of which
are very fine and upon the whole a parcel of very good cattle ;
My demands for money is very pressing. I am under the disagree-
able necessity of borrowing small sums to defray necessary Ex-
pences. If you cannot supply me with money — pray give me an order
on the Collector for £500 state, it is to pay for provisions purchased
before the present Law. for which I have obliged myself to pay
Cash.
I have two other stears which fell lame in driving

[J. Donnellan, Baltimore, to Gov. Lee.] (p favor Mr. Calhoun)

With much Reluctance I again trouble your Excellency, requesting
a Supply of Cash am compell'd to be urgent by the daily demands of
the several persons to whom I am Indebted for accot of the State
and am apprehensive that they think I triffle with them.
My own wants are realy so great that I have been obliged for
several weeks passt to borrow Marketing, Money, as all resources to
earn some have fail'd me of late
Family necessarys are geting so Dear that presently my Money
will go but a short way in comparison to what it wou'd have done
some weeks ago. I therefore Intreat that some measure may be
fallen upon to relieve me. About Sixty Thousand Pounds wou'd be
sufficient
Mr Calhoun will be so kind as to Act any part for me that may be
necessary in the matter.

Letter 55

[John Hanson, Daniel Carroll, Philadelphia, to Gov. Lee.]

There are in this city about 4000 Rampart pieces belonging to the
public — they weigh from 16 to 20lbs each it is thought the lightest
might be useful in the hands of the Militia, and the others on board
of Vessels. If you think it proper we shou'd apply for any of them,
on account of the state, it is probable a thousand or 1500 might be
obtained, with some old cartouch boxes, belonging to them. There
are likewise some Brass Field pieces mounted, three or four of which
might possible be obtained on yr request
Capt Forrest left directions with Mr Gaddiss & Mr Wilkinson

about the paper, & a memorandum about types for the small money
