of the Council of Safety, 1777. 183

are, they shall be punctually obeyed. I mentioned to you the
money that was then necessary for me to have, and would
have then sent you my account, but as I had been joined by

the other officers, but a day or two before we marched to
Patuxent it was not then in my power. However I informed
you that clothes and blankets were provided that besides one
months advance, three weeks subsistance money had been
paid to most of the men, if the whole was put together you
would easily see that a considerable sum more than I had
received was necessary, I have long ago advanced all the
money I received from you and all of my own that I could
scrape together a particular account of which I will transmit
as soon as Mr Stewart returns, but since then I have been
maintaining fifty men on Patuxent and Potomack and in con-
sequence have been obliged to stake my credit for their sub-
sistance. I have purchased one hogshead of rum and one of
molasses & some vinegar with an Intention of supplying the
men with their rations, an account of which I shall also trans-
mit you are so obliging as to tell me you have sent me some
money tho' not enough for my wants, I wish I knew by whom
you sent it and how much for if the sum is not very small It
would not at any time be more acceptable. The men are in
the greatest want of their breeches & hats, and I hope twill
not be long 'eer we are supplyed with them as also our arms
& ammunition I have fifty men stationed at Mrs Carrolls at
the particular instance of the Gentn of the County, the rest
not haveing any kind of arms are at Leonard Town where I
shall keep them until I hear farther from you, which I hope
will be by the return of the Calvert County Post, by whom I
shall quickly receive any dispatches I may be honoured with:
I am Gentn yr most obdt
Humble Servant, J. A. Thomas
To the Honble the Council of Safety of Md

[Dr. Michael Wallace to Council.]

Gentlemen: Inclosed is my List of Medicines, which am
disposed to rend to you at 150 p Ct which is the usual
advance, on this kind of merchandize. A very few of the
articles are high charged, but this was unavoidable as neces-
sity obliged me some time since to buy them here: I have
also a very elegant set of amputating Instruments, and some
other surgical apparatus; these I would rather not sell, unless
the Council of Safety may hereafter find great difficulty in
procuring such articles. I am Gentlemen, Your most obedt
Hble Servt Michael Wallace.
To the Honble The Council of Safety of Md

C. S. C.
