Council of Maryland, 1782-1783. 335

[W Paca in Council to Honble Intendant.]

We request you will give Orders for supplying the Deficiencies of
Cloathing wanted for the Troops at Frederick Town, except Shoes,
of which there are a Quantity at Frederick Town

January 2
Liber No. 78
p. 404

[W Paca in Council to Colo Philip Thomas]

We are favored with yours of the 20th ulto. As the Prisoners at
Frederick Town will, hereafter, be guarded by Regular Troops,
there will be no Necessity for an Armourer; we think however, it
would be right to employ Mr Razer to repair the Arms that are now
out of Order. We request you will send to this Place, by the Wag-

except one hundred Pair to be reserved for the Guard


[W Paca in Council to Colo Philip Thomas.]

Lieut Ricketts informs us that you delivered him 34 Pair of Shoes
for the Men under his Command. We approve of what you have
done, and have wrote this for your Justification.


[W Paca in Council to Colo Philip Thomas]

We shall be obliged to you to deliver to Lieut Lynn 21 Pair of
Shoes, for a Detachment ordered to Frederick to guard the Prisoners

the Report of a Committee of Congress, on the Subject of Rhode
Island's Refusal to impose the 5 p Cent Duty, and we have laid it
before our Assembly, with the Injunction not to suffer Copies to be
taken for the present. We had received His Excellency the Minis-
ter's Letter, the Week before, and it is our Request that you will
take the first Opportunity of expressing to His Excellency, the grate-
ful sense we entertain of his very polite and obliging Condescension.
Two armed Vessels, the one called the Pole Cat, the other, the Tarle-
ton, came down immediately from Baltimore, and have since sailed
down the Bay against the Enemy, and, we have great Reason to be-
lieve, will either Capture or drive them out of it. The Appearance of
those Vessels off Annapolis in Face of the General Assembly, who
had applied for them, for the Protection of their Citizens, made a
very favorable Impression of the Utility and Importance of the Alli-
ance. The Secretary for Foreign Affairs transmitted us a Copy of
Mr Oswald's Commission, which we have also communicated to the
