of the Council of Maryland. 71


3d Maryland Regiment. He also writes " I have enclosed you a List
of such Sergeants and others of the first Brigade, who have been
recommended for Commissions, by their Field Officers and Captains.
I believe their Services and Merit entitle them to such Reward, where
it can be granted consistent with the Views of the State. Perhaps it
might be well to avoid fixing their relative Rank, as that might be
determined by a Board of the Field Officers, agreeable to their Merit
and Pretensions " Here follows the List William Noyes Sergt Major,
Francis Shepherd, Mark McPherson, Richard Coe, of the first: John

No. 22

Trueman, Henry Clements, Robert Halkerston, Walter Dyer, of the
3rd William Reason, John Cheers of the 5th David Green, Sergt
Major, Robert Green, Thomas Jenkins, Benjamin Fickle, Robert
Yeates of the 7th James Thompson and William Smoot of the first
and John Smith of the 3d Regiment. We appoint them to Ensigncies
in the first Brigade and desire Commissions may issue, leaving the
Rank to be setled hereafter. He also writes " I must beg Leave to
recommend Theophilus Tabbs, a Brother of Surgeon Tabbs of the
7th Maryland Regiment, lately resigned, he is descended of a good
Family and tis probable he will make a good Officer. He is a Stranger
to me, & I have no particular Recommendation of him; his Brother
has applied on his Behalf " We appoint him an Ensign in the first
Brigade and desire a Commission may issue to him. Colo Josias
Carvil Hall writes " I have no Sergeant, at this Time to recommend,
except the one I had the Honor to propose, by my Letter of Iuly
last; as I have not heard whether or not he was approved of, I beg
to mention Sergeant Jacob Rittenhouse Shoemaker again We can-
not find any such Letter, nor do we remember receiving one from
him, recommending the Sergeant. We approve of and appoint him
an Ensign in the second Maryland Brigade and desire a Commission
may issue. We ratify and confirm the Promotions of Lieut Colos
Adams and Woolford, Lieut Colo Adams to the first and Lieut Colo
Woolford to the fifth Regimt Lieut Colo Thomas Woolford writes
I cannot, without Injustice to Sergeants Lowe, Mason, Sears and
Crawford, who have served under me in the second Maryland Regi-
ment for these three Years past, during which Time their Merit and
Services entitle them to every Mark of Gratitude and Favor from
their Country which possibly can be shewn them. As there are Vacan-
cies in the Regiment, will be happy in having them commissioned as
Ensigns. I can assure your Excellency that I would by no means
recommend them, had I not been an Eye witness of their Behaviour
and past Services." We approve of the Preferments and desire Com-
missions may issue to John Tolson Lowe, Caleb Mason, John Sears
and Jacob Crawford as Ensigns in the second Regiment of Maryland
Troops, leaving the Rank to be setled hereafter as before mentioned.
