122 Journal and Correspondence.

April 5
Liber No. 78
p. 337

[Council to Delegates in Congress.]

We are sorry to be again under the Necessity of troubling you
on a Subject which has already been the Occasion of so many Let-
ters. Your Favor of the 12th ulto refers us to the Secretary at War
for the Result of our Application of the 28th Jany last, to Congress,
for a considerable Supply of Arms and Cloathing, which we claimed
as due to this State. We are informed from the War Office, that all
we have to expect, is about three hundred Suits of Cloathing, which
were ordered to be sent on, and even this paltry Supply, we have not
yet received. We must therefore once more solicit your Attention to
our Demands upon the United States. Were it the Practice of all
the States to cloath, equip and Arm their Troops, we should do it
without Reluctance; but to be called upon by Congress for Monies
to procure the very Articles, which we are also under the Necessity
of furnishing specifically, is too unreasonable and cannot be sub-
mitted to


[Council to Honble Majr Genl Lincoln.]

We have not yet received the three hundred Suits of Cloathing you
informed us in your Letter of the 14th ulto, you had ordered to be
sent on for the Recruits of this State. Unequal as this very small
Supply will be to our Occasions, and to what we have a Right to
expect and claim, we wish it may be forwarded immediately; as we
have a Number of Recruits greatly distressed for Cloathing, who
can neither be disciplined in the State, nor sent out of it, in their
present Condition. We shall expect the Honor of hearing from you
very shortly and are with great Respect &ca


[Council to His Exy Genl Washington.]

We are honored with your Excellency's Favor of the 14th ulto
We will take Measures to have Waggons supplied to the Officers,
who have Charge of the Goods for the British and German Prison-
ers at Frederick Town, and to prevent their meeting with any Im-
position or Molestation in this State


[Council to Honble Robert Morris Esqr]
