[Rich'd Dallam, Harford County, to Gov. Lee.]
(favd by Colo Vanhorn)

This will be hand'd your Excellency Colo Gabriel Vanhorn Who
has under his charge John Stump and His papers taken agreeable to
Your Excellencies Warrant to me, which I did not receive untill
22nd Instant at night Yesterday morning early I set off to Mr Stumps
& tooke him in the Evening at His Own House from His behaviour
and rediness to deliver up his papers I was induced to believe the
Warrant was not agl him but His Cousin Who sometime agoe was
in New York I dispatchd after him a party shld have sent both down

but he had passed Susquahanah the evening before having just re-

turnd from Balt Town where I fear he might have had some Inti-
mation what was doing its reported he is gone to Philadelphia.
Mr Stump herewith sent has desired me to inform Your Excel-
lency that his Affairs are in such situation having a Number of
hands employd it will be ruinous to him to be detaind And as he is
Assured nothing will appear against him to give a suspition of his
being Guilty of the charges Against him Hopes his Examination will
not be delayd longer than possible
I have sent every Book & paper I could find that could any way
tend to any discovery & indeed I have sent every Paper & Book
Except some Books of an older date then the War At the Request
of Mr Stump I looked over the papers & some Letters but did not
undertake to separate or examine the Contents One Letter I ob-
served has the Name tourn out but for Your Excellencys informa-
tion if it contains any or not I will mention that its wrote by John
Hammond Crummell of Balt Town, Who I expect is before this
apprehend'd as its generally believed has been lately with the Enemy
I have nothing further to inform Your Excellency that can give
any light into this Examination I shall keep a Looke out for the
other John Stump but do not know, I shall have or can obtain any
Legal Power to apprehend him & therefore Could wish I could be
Authorised to seize him & send him down. Or others concernd If
