pointment of Magistrates, as soon as the Commissions sent the Chan-

p. 314

[Council to Colo Philip Thomas.]

Lieut Colo North informs the Board that he has received Orders
from the Minister of War to remove all the British Troops from
Frederick, to York and Lancaster in Pennsylvania, and to apply for a
Guard of Militia and Teams from this State, to escort them with
their Baggage, to those Places, where they will be relieved by a Con-
tinental Regiment. We some Time ago ordered one hundred Militia
from Baltimore and fifty from Montgomery which we suppose are
arrived at Frederick Town; we request you to order them and as
many more of the Militia now on Duty, as will be sufficient to guard
the Prisoners. If Teams cannot be procured on Hire, we would have
you impress them, and hereby authorize and empower you to impress
as Teams, Horses and Drivers as may be necessary for the Prisoners
and the Guard. We hope the Guard and Teams will be furnished
without Delay, that the Prisoners may be immediately marched.
