Gentn
We have ordered a Captain and thirty Privates of the
militia of Kent County to guard the Gun Powder &c belong-
ing to this Province from Chingoteague in Accomack County
in Virginia to Chester Town, but as we cannot with any Cer-
tainty from the unhappy and disturbed state of your County
and Somerset, determine with any Certainty whether it may
be a sufficient Guard, we request if you think it will not, that
as many of your militia as you shall determine proper, may
march through Somerset and the Head of Dorset with the
Waggons for the further security of the Powder, and we cannot
doubt of the readiness of your men to engage in the service,
and are fully persuaded your requisition without an order
from our Board will be sufficient to ensure a Compliance.
