of the Council of Maryland. 71

Cloths, Blanketts. If you was to send a Person over very early
Tomorrow they might probably get a great many valuable things,
tho' from what I have heard they are very Dear, I believe he will
Deal for nothing but Continental Money, if you have not the Cash
in the Treasury at Present I have no doubt but I could prevail on
Capt Conway to wait for the Money for I am 1/4 concern'd in Vcssell
& Cargo but have no share in the management.
There has just arrived 2 Irish Cutters in York River & a large
Brig, from Ireland in James River all full of Linnens and Cloths.
I am told the Governor and Council were treating for the Cargoes
I hope they will be sufficient of the kind for the southern Army.


[George Dashiell to Gov Lee]
Sir I recd yr letter of 21 & 28 of August and agreable to yor
Request I have orderd a Detachment of the Militia upon Duty in
which they will be Continued untill I have yr order to Discharge
them. I have no provision on hand belonging to the Publick to
subsist them on & am purchasing with the Public money for that
purpose. I request you'l Direct me whither I am to Draw on the
Commissary for Supplies or Continue to Purchase with the money
recd from the Classes. My Brother has Drawn several orders on me
in favor of Persons from whom He has Purchas'd Pork for the
State, and as I am Doubtfull, whither I Can with propriety apply
the money Drawn from the Classes, to answer them, I beg yr Excel-
lencys advice upon that matter & also Information how to act in
future on similar occasions. I have Informed the Inhabitants of
this Coty by advertisement that wheat will be recd at 22.10o in Dis-
charge of the money Due from the Classes
