[Fairfax to Sharpe.]
Frederick Septemr the 24th 1753.
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
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
Your humble Servant
To his Excellency Horatio Sharpe Fairfax
Governor of Maryland.
