x Report of the Committee.

The Committee also desires to place on record an acknowledgment of
the courtesies extended them by Dr. William R. Hayward, Commis-
sioner of the Land Office, and Mr. George H. Shafer, clerk in the same
office, Dr. E. P. Duval, State Librarian, and Spencer C. Jones, Esq.,
Clerk of the Court of Appeals, in facilitating the search for and collec-
tion of the various State Archives.

The Committee feel that to the Manager of the printing establish-
ment of I. Friedenwald, and to the compositors, proof-readers and others
engaged on this work, special recognition is due of services of a pecu-
liarly difficult and laborious kind, performed with zeal, patience, fidelity
and intelligence that cannot be estimated at a mere money value.

The Committee has given its earnest attention to the work, and it
hopes that the publication now begun under such favorable circum-
stances, may be continued until the entire series of Provincial and Revo-
lutionary Records of our State is placed in print.

Respectfully submitted,

JOHN W. M. LEE,
BRADLEY T. JOHNSON,
HENRY STOCKBRIDGE,

BALTIMORE, November 12, 1883. Committee.

Which, upon motion, was accepted and approved, and ordered to be
printed.

The Society, in accepting the volume, passed the following resolution:

Resolved, That the officers of this Society, in presenting to the Legis-
lature the first volume of the Archives of Maryland, are requested to
give an earnest expression to the opinion of this Society, that the publi-
cation now made at the expense of the State is satisfactory in the highest
degree to those who are interested in the history of Maryland; and are
also requested to urge upon the representatives of the people to pro-
vide liberally for the continuance of the publication, so that the origin
and growth of our civil institutions may be thoroughly understood by
the citizens of this State, and made likewise accessible to those at a dis-
tance who may wish to study the development of a free Commonwealth.

Trusting that the work may meet the approval of your honorable
bodies,

We have the honor to be,

Very respectfully,

JOHN H. B. LATROBE,

MENDES COHEN, President.
Corresponding Secretary.
