Council of Maryland, 1781-1782. 145


his Enlistment, upon which our Determination was founded, are not
controverted; and the Circumstances in your Letter, have not suffi-
cient Weight to induce us to recede from it; for we cannot conceive
it consonant with Justice or Reason, that a Citizen who hath been
illegally deprived of his Right, ought to submit to a Composition,
as a Condition, upon which only his Apprentice can be restored, as it
presupposes some Fault or Delinquency in the Master, previous to
the Enlistment, which does not appear, nor is alledged. If the Re-
cruiting Officer was imposed on by Simmonds, his Master was not
privy to such Imposition, and ought not to suffer for it. We there-
fore repeat our Request, that Simmonds be discharged and returned
to his Master. Whether the State will be burthened with the Money
advanced to Simmonds, must depend on the Result of an Enquiry
into the Conduct of the Recruiting Officer : Simmonds says that
previous to his receiving any Bounty, he informed Chestus, by whom
he was enlisted, he was an Apprentice.
