Session Laws
Chap. 111
p. 2

Whereas, it is represented to this General Assembly, that in Pur-
suance to the Directions and Authority given in the above-mentioned
Act, made at a Session of Assembly begun and held at the City of
Annapolis, the first Day of May, Anno Domini Seventeen hundred
and forty-four, the Commissioners therein named, or the major Part
of them, together with the Surveyor of Worcester County, did pro-
ceed, and actually lay out, the two Towns in the said Act mentioned,
by the Names of Baltimore-Town and Newport-Town; but that the
Surveyor of the said County, upon performing his Part of Duty,
as required and directed by the said Act, refused to stake out and
distinguish the several and respective Lots in the said Towns, or to
pay and satisfy the Chain-Carriers for their Service. And whereas,
it is further represented, that the said Town, called Baltimore-
Town, is not laid out in so commodious a Place, nor on such navi-
gable Water, as it would be, were it laid out more bending on Indian
River than at present it does.

gether with the Surveyor of the said Worcester County for the Time

such Manner as to them the said Commissioners, or the major Part
of them, shall seem meet, so as to include within the Bounds thereof
