Letter from the Maryland Council of Safety to Jesse Hollingsworth

Page v6:1131


[No. 55.] Annapolis, June 29, 1776.

SIR: As the former request made by the Council was disagreeable, as you mention to us, to Messrs. Lux & Bowley and Captain Woolsey, we thought it most proper to refer the consideration of their claims and proposals, with all the papers and letters relative to that transaction, to the Convention, who have concurred with the report of their Committee of Claims, which we send you enclosed. You will therefore make known to those gentlemen this resolution of the Convention, and you will proceed agreeable to the instructions we have given you respecting those cargoes, and you will please to inform those gentlemen we will pay the particular sums to their order.

Lieutenant Moore has made known to us that there are wanting for the artillery here two hundred four-pound balls, two hundred six-pound ditto, and four hundred three-pound ditto. These are cast at the Kingsbury Furnace, and we request the favour of you to expedite them as soon as they possibly can be done. We are, &c.

To Mr. Jesse Hollingsworth.
