486 Letters to the Governor and Council

September 11

[Wm. Hemsley, Queen Anns County, to Gov. Lee.] (Favd by
Colo T. Tilghman.)

I shou'd have answered your Favor relative to Peter Bahan, had
I not been from home.
Bahan was hired as a Substitute by Mr Emory & had disposed of
his wheat to a person in this Neighbourhood for a few old Cloaths.
When I understood how he had disposed of his property, I made the
man take his Cloaths again, and Mr Emory gave Bahan, a Line to
Draw an order on him for the wheat and he wou'd pay it as he sup-
posed Bahan cou'd sell the wheat to more advantage at Anns for he
cou'd not get any money here for it.
I fear we shall get no more of the Draughts in, unless a Serjeant
and a few men were sent over to take them. The Militia Captains
will not execute my Orders, they pretend they cant find the Men.
As next Monday is Battalion day I will endeavour to have them sent
The people here part with their Cattle with great pleasure. [I have
had Nine hundred pounds Subscribed for the support of the new
Money] .
