quired by the William L. Clements Library. Perhaps
there are so few copies remaining, in contrast to the
Relation of 1635, which is longer and contains the first
printing of the Maryland Charter, because the terms it
set forth were more generous than Lord Baltimore
found he needed to offer. In fact, when one of the in-
vestors in the second voyage commenced an equity suit
claiming that Lord Baltimore had not complied with the
original terms of their agreement, Cecil Calvert cleverly
produced the 1635 Relation as evidence of what he
promised instead of the 1634 Conditions. The plaintiff
did not catch the switch and, if he had lived to win the
case, could have received considerably less in land than
he had originally bargained for.

   Publication of this pamphlet was made possible
through the cooperation of Norman Fiering, Director
and Librarian of the John Carter Brown Library, who
granted permission to reprint the 1634 Relation, and the
Reverend Michael di'Teccia Farina of the Paul VI Insti-
tute for the Arts for the Maryland Conference, who
granted permission to reprint Lois Green Carr's intro-
duction in an extensively revised and annotated form.
We are grateful to Lois Anne Hess who patiently and
expertly typed the manuscript. We are also indebted to
William E. Culen, printing buyer, Department of Gen-
eral Services, and E. John Schmitz & Sons, Inc., who
not only expedited the production of this pamphlet, but
also, with our publications director, Rick Blondo, ap-
plied their considerable expertise to ensure the timely
delivery of another carefully crafted product.
