178 Journal and Correspondence



[Jno Hammond, Acton Hall to Col Uriah Forrest]

Sir I beg Leave to inform you, that the Soldiery stationed at
the Poor House, still continue their Trespasses on my Land, by cut-
ting and carrying off my wood from it: — That on detecting two of
them yesterday in the Fact, and questioning them, how they dared
to do it contrary to your Orders; They informed me, they had re-
ceived none from vou, either personally or by Message; or thro' any
Officer acting under you: That they were not allowed, or supplied

[Chas. Blake, Corsica, to Gov Lee]

out owing to the difference of the half busls the people here insist
on delivering by our seal and Hollinsworth will receive by none but
his own scale and there appears a difference of a pint in every half
bus: I have retained the money for the deficiencys in my hands till
I hear from you tho it appears they have deliver'd every grain they
receiv'd. I hope yr Excell will send me a written order to Hollings-
worth by the Queen Ann's seal that which is purchas'd by that seal
or the disputes will be endless. I recd yr. Ex: letter and £250 but
that will go but a little way I hope to receive by Mr Hemsley a sum
that will last all winter as the weather may prevent getting it when
much wanted. If pork is to be bought please to send Salt or an
order on Mr Wedderstrandt as he has Gov' Salt here.
