LETTER OF TRANSMITTAL

To the Maryland Historical Society:
LADIES AND GENTLEMEN :

This volume of the Provincial Court proceedings for 1679 to 1680/1, is
Volume LXIX of the Archives of Maryland and Volume 14 of the sub-series
on the courts. The tenth volume on the Provincial court, it begins with the
opening of the Court on October 7, 1679, and it closes with what must have
been the end of a session on February 23, 1680/1. At least, the next page of
Liber W. C. begins with the formal opening of another session. Like its prede-
cessors, it was set directly from photostats of the original liber in the Hall of
Records in Annapolis and it reproduces, as exactly as a first-rate modern press
can do it, the full and complete contents of that old volume. Courts and clerks
do not change much, either in make-up or in habits, in the course of a very few
years, so that most of what was said in the introduction to earlier volumes does
not need to be repeated here. Volume LXIX begins with the first page of Liber
W. C., and it ends with the last lines on page 384.

Volume LXX of the Archives will continue the work of the Provincial Court.
It begins on April 26, 1681, with page 385 of Liber W. C., and it ends with
page 771 of the same liber, on October 30, 1683. The copy for it is at hand,
and work on it has already begun.

Respectfully submitted,

CHARLES A. BARKER,
Chairman of the

Committee on Publications
RHODA M. DORSEY
AUBREY C. LAND
ROBERT G. MERRICK
HARRISON TILGHMAN
