Proceedings of the Council of Maryland, 1678-1679. 305

Memorandu: that on the 16th Day of June Anno 1680: His
Lspp: the Rtt Honble the Lord Propry haveing recd: severall Let-
ters and papers from Baltemore County communicated the
same to the Honble Philip Calvert Esqr Chancelor at the State
house at the City of St Maries, the Contents whereof are asfoll. viz.
Lib. R.
June the 4th 1680:
May it please Yor Lspp:
Yor Lspps of the 28th of May by Mr Jacob Jenifer I recd: with
twenty five musketts and a Cask of powdr the contents as yett
I know not, also four Runletts of Shott, twenty musketts I
recd, the last yeare p the hand of Mr James Philips in all
fourty five. Yor Lspps: ordr of Councill I recd: the first of this
Instant, and in ordr thereunto have examined Thomas Rich-
ardson and others, and have Inclosed sent yr Lspp: the same,
also have called Capt John Waterton before me who hath
with his owne hand writt the reasons wch I beseech your Lspp:
to accept and to pass by what was amiss, for he doth further
say that he had noe knowledge of the Sinnequo Troopes
being downe, and being but four of them did conclude it was
those sculking rogues that did the mischiefe the last yeare,
which I still think they bee, and although they did march
without ordr it was but to the releife of those who had for fear
deserted their houses, and what Indians were Discovered
escaped their hands without any harme onely leaveing their
packs, and doth promise for the future to be more carefull to
observe your Lspps ordrs and not to moove without yor Lspps or
his Superior Officers Command. I have endeavoured to
informe myself by all waies and meanes what Indians they
were butt it is as yett unknowne, but am of opinion that it is
some Susquehannohs fled from the Sinniquo Army and hap-
pily it may be those that did the mischief for the severall
before goeing yeares in the same River. It does not appeare
to be the Sinniquos as I feared at first for the house lyes a
greate way from their roade in a neck; I have spoke with
Jacob Young who has promised to inquire by all meanes
what Indians they are, and it is his opinion that the Sinniquo
Troopes will be downe againe about July or August, and that
if your Lspp: will be pleased to employ some person that
undrstands the language with a small party of horse to scout
Mr Anthony Demondidiers whose house lyes neere their
roade that your Lspp might happily thereby come to speech of
them and by that meanes prevent much their makeing
inroades thus into yr Lspps Province, Jacob Young I presume
will be the man, and will be sworne as is vsuall for Interpre-
ters to be. This with my humble Service to yr Lspp with all
humility and obedience is all from
Yor Lspps ffaithfull Servant
George Wells.
