given us that, as soon as it is seen you are to join Colo Rich-
ardson, a good many others will enroll and have sent them by
Mr Chalmers. We would have what Men have already

[Council to Lieutenants.]

In Council Annapolis 18th Augt 1777.
Yesterd Morning one Capt Thomas Timson came up from
Virginia and informed that on Thursday Evening last he saw
a Fleet of the Enemy's Ships coming within the Capes. That
he distinctly saw Sixty Sail, some of them two or three Miles
within and a number following, which, because of the Dis-
tance and the Night coming on, he could not see distinctly.
We have an Express to Day from Virginia confirming the
Information. Whether they have Land Troops on Board or
what is their Destination or Design, we are not informed, but
we think it adviseable that you give Orders to the Militia
under your Command to prepare themselves, as well as they
can, for Service, and hold themselves in readiness to march
instantly on further Orders. We are &ca
To the Lieuts of the
different Counties


[W. Paca to Gov. Johnson.]

D' Sir.
I enclose you Genl Washington's letter and doubt not you
will make a proper Enquiry into the Arrest he complains of I
wish the Artillery Corp & the 16 Regt had been apportioned
on the States that such States might have known what were
its Quota and the frequent Difficulties in filling up those
Corps prevented.
