                        LETTER OF TRANSMITTAL

         To the Members of the Maryland Historical Society:
           This volume of the proceedings of the Provincial Court of Maryland, 1675-
         1677, is Volume LXVI of the Archives of Maryland and number 1 1 of the
         series on the courts. The seventh volume of the Provincial Court records, it
         begins on November 16, 1675, where Volume LXV ended, and continues to
         April 28, 1677. Like Volume LXV, it is printed just as exactly as a good
         modern press can do it. It was set directly from photostats of the original
         Liber NN, now in the Land Office at Annapolis. Much that was said in the
         transmittal of Volume LXV is equally true of Volume LXVI. Again this
         time, where the manuscript has two columns of figures side by side, it has been
         necessary to print them as two single columns (post, p. 419).
           The handwriting of Liber NN continues to trouble the twentieth-century
         reader, although it is not quite so bad as that in the preceding liber. A new
         scribe appears, or, at least, a new handwriting, and his copy is much easier
         to read. His use of capital letters remains capricious and uncertain, but his
         capitals and his lower-case letters are not so hard to distinguish: there is
         usually little doubt whether he wrote a lower-case or upper-case S. When he
         understood that what he was writing was hard to read, he took pains to write
         with unusual clearness.
           Volume LX VII, on which work has already been begun, will carry on the
         record of the Provincial Court. It will begin in June 1677 and will continue
         to 1679. Like this volume, it will be printed from Liber NN.
                                 Respectfully submitted,
                                    J. HALL PLEASANTS, Chairman,

                                     CHARLES A. BARKER,

                                     JOSEPH KATZ,

                                     HARRISON TILGH MAN,

                                     GEORGE Ross VEAZEY.
