which may be always relief on with safety:  And whereas Doctor
James Smith, of the city of Baltimore, hath proposed to use his
best exertions to accomplish this desirable object; therefore,

J. Coale, Peter Hoffman, jun. and Doctor James Smith, are
appointed managers, and they, or a majority of them, may institute
and establish a lottery or lotteries in the city of Baltimore,
to raise a sum of money, not exceeding thirty thousand dollars,
clear of expenses, sufficient to procure a piece of ground, and to
build thereon a convenient house for the purpose of a vaccine institution,
and to defray all other expenses incurred by Doctor James
Smith to procure and distribute the vaccine matter, free of any
costs, to the citizens of this state; Provided however, that before
the managers above appointed proceed to the sale of any ticket or
tickets in the said lottery or lotteries, the aforesaid Doctor James
Smith shall give bond to the state of Maryland, with security to
be approved of by the mayor of the city of Baltimore, in the penalty
of ten thousand dollars, conditioned, that he, the said James
Smith, shall use his best exertions to procure, and well and faithfully
to preserve, the genuine vaccine matter, and distribute the
same, with instructions, if required, for the use thereof, for a period
of six years from this time, free of expense, to any of the
citizens of this state applying for the same, and it shall be the duty
of the said James Smith to lodge the said bond in the clerk's
office of Baltimore county court, there to be recorded, within sixty
days after it may be executed and approved of as above mentioned;
And provided also, that before the managers above appointed proceed
to the sale of any ticket or tickets in said lottery or lotteries,
they, or a majority of them, shall give bond to the state of Maryland, 
in the penalty of sixty thousand dollars, conditioned that
they will well and truly apply the monies arising therefrom, within
six months after the drawing thereof, to the payment of any prizes
to whom they shall be due, and that after deducting all necessary
expenses incurred in the management thereof, they shall pay
over to the aforesaid Doctor James Smith the neat profits arising
from said lottery or lotteries, to be by him applied to the purposes
above mentioned, and to carry this law into full effect; and the
said bond shall be lodged in the clerk's office of Baltimore county,
to be there recorded, and upon such bond, or any office copy thereof,
suit or suits may be instituted for any breach or noncompliance
with the conditions thereof.
