Correspondence of Governor Sharpe. 7


 

 

towmeck; The best Information I have been hitherto able to
procure gives me Reason to believe there has been a mistake
in fixing the Spring head to the North Branch since the Length
with other Circumstances more properly denotes the Southern
Branch commonly called Wappacomo to be the main & prin-
cipal Course of that River. I am the more willing to be

persuaded of the Truth of this Representation from the con-
siderable Advantage that will accrue to your Lordship. That
Branch I am Informed has never been thoroughly explored and
traced to it's Source, but I flatter myself with having your Lord-
ship's Concurrance for such an Examination into its Course
Length Width and Depth as may bring this Matter to a nearer
degree of Certainty and if that should appear to be the foun-
tain head of Patowmeck River I shall not Question but your
Lordship will be for taking such measures as may ascertain
the mutual Limits of the two Proprietorships Agreeable to the
Direction and True Intention of their Respective Charters.


Letter Bk. I.
[Sharpe to Frederick, Lord Baltimore.]

Sept 14: 1753
My Lord I take this opportunity of complying with the re-
quest of the Parochial Clergy by transmitting their Address to
your Lordship & at the same time of expressing my own grati-
tude for your Lordships Favours & assuring your Lordship
that I am too sensible of the honour conferred on me to be
wanting in my Duty or Zeal in advancing by all possible means
Your Lordships Honour & Interest. &c.


p. 6
[Fairfax to Sharpe.]

Frederick Septemr the 24th 1753.
Sir
Yours I received by Mr Young, by which I perceive Lord
Baltimore designs to dispute with this Province which is the
head Spring of Patowmeck the length or North Branch as Run
out by the Commissioners between his Majesty and me in the
year 1736.
I am intirely that the South would be much to my Advan-
tage, and therefore think it improper for me to Appear therein,
and that the Governor of Virginia and your Excellency should
transact that Affair if his Lordship should obtain his demand,
I must insist upon a new Line between his Majesty and me to
the Southward. I heartily wish this Climate may be agreeable
to your Excellency. I remain
Sr
Your humble Servant
To his Excellency Horatio Sharpe Fairfax
Governor of Maryland.


Liber J. R.
& U. S.
1753-67.
