[W Paca in Council to Captn De Barrass of the Tarleton]

Being in Want of Arms to supply the Militia in some Parts of the
State, exposed to the Incursions of the Enemy's Barges : we take the
Liberty to request that you will be pleased to deliver those you bor-

Office, at present, are four Rations and Pay equal to a Major's

priated, in the first Instance, for the Payment of it.
It is not fair to shift the Subjects of our Remonstrance and Ob-
