A History of Printing in Colonial Maryland

383. To the People of Maryland,| Gentlemen,| You have from the beginning of our | strug-
gles for Liberty, with unconsti-| tutional ministerial power, seen that | our success depended
almost, or alto-| gether, upon the strength of the pro-| vinces united together, as each dis-
| tinctly must become an easy prey to | our enemies....... [signed,] A Countryman.] Bal-
timore County, May 28, 1776.| [Baltimore: Printed by Mary K. Goddard. 1776.]

Broadside. 16 1/16 x 6 1/2 inches.


384. UNITED COLONIES OF NORTH AMERICA. General Post-Office, Philadelphia, May i,

A broadside containing an admonition from William Goddard, surveyor of Post Office, directed to deputy
postmasters, and other post office business. Evans, No. 15127, suggests that it was printed in Baltimore by Mary
K. Goddard, but it is more likely to have been printed in Philadelphia. During his post office surveyorship, God-
dard was everywhere, and the fact that the communications contained in this broadside are dated at Philadel-
phia leads one to believe that the sheet was printed there. No copy of it has been located.

prize,] which I had formed against a Detachment | of the Enemy lying in Trenton, and
which | was executed Yesterday Morning.| ..... Published by Order of Congress,| Charles
Thomson, Sec.| Baltimore: Printed by M. K. Goddard.| [1776.]

Broadside. 16 7/8 x 7 inches.

Contains an account of the Battle of Trenton, prisoners, arms and stores captured, etc. Congress was now
in session in Baltimore and Mary Goddard was doing some of its printing.

386. —In Congress.] December n, 1776.| Whereas, the just War into which the United |

Freedom:| ..... Extracts from the Minutes,] Charles Thomson, Secretary.] Baltimore:

Recommending a day of solemn fasting and humiliation, the date of which each State was to fix as "most
proper for their several bounds."

Congress adjourned at Philadelphia on Dec. 11th to meet in Baltimore on the 2oth, when it is likely that this
broadside was published. See Ford, "Bibliographical Notes," No. 136.
