[Council to Colo Philip Thomas.]

We have received Major Bailey's Letter of the 8th Instant enclos-
ing the Proceedings of a General Court Martial held at Frederick
Town the 6th of Decr 1781, for the Trial of Ensign Karr of Capt.
Winchester's Company of Select Militia, the Sentence of which the
Governor approves and orders it to be carried into Execution. He
also mentions his great Difficulties in supplying Wood to the Prison-
ers, which he says has hitherto been done by Fatigue Parties from
his Guard, which cannot be the Case in future, as the Men refuse to
do the Duty. As we cannot possibly furnish Money for Wood Cut-
ters, and as the Expedient has been already practised in other Places,
we request that the Prisoners themselves may be made to cut their
own Wood; a Guard should be turned out with the Fatigue Parties
of the Prisoners, to prevent their escaping. We have this Day wrote
to the Superintendent of the Finances, for Cash to support the Pris-
oners; as our Request is reasonable we have Expectations of suc-
ceeding, in which Case, some of your Difficulties will be removed.
