140 Journal and Correspondence.

April 1 6
Liber No. 78
p. 342

[Council to General Smallwood.]

The following Extract of a Letter from Majr Bailey, just received,
" I really am under a great Deal of Uneasiness at the Situation of
the Prisoners. I meet with every Obstruction in the Execution of
my Duty, and I am obliged to be very mild with the Prisoners for
Fear of disagreeable Consequences, and without a stronger Guard,
the Prisoners will be scattered all over the Country; The Farmers
are full of Complaints about the Destruction of their Property, which
I cannot prevent ", will shew you the present Situation of the Pris-
oners at Frederick Town, and we hope, will fully justify you for
departing so far from your Instructions as to furnish a Regular
Guard of one hundred Men, for one Month, in which Time we will
write to Congress on the Subject and endeavour to obtain their Ap-
probation of the Measure.
