No. 11.
Whereas, The state of Maryland holds a lot of ground containing about four
acres, situate about one mile from Frederick-town, near the Harper's ferry
road, on which stands a stone building, formerly used as a magazine, but now
in a ruinous state; that there is also a log building on said lot, formerly used as
a guard house; but inasmuch as the lot of ground or the buildings have not
been for many years used for state purposes, the said guard house has almost
constantly been and yet continues to be occupied by free people of colour,
which causes complaints by the neighboring citizens; to remedy which, be it
resolved, That the governor and council, be and are hereby authorised, to
make such disposition of the said lot of ground as they may deem proper,
either by letting the said lot of ground to some person holding the adjacent
lands, or otherwise, so as to prevent the causes of said complaints; and incase
of letting the same, to have a clause of reservation to the state, to have the
said lot given up at any time whenever the state may require the same.
