MARYLAND COUNCIL OF SAFETY TO CAPTAIN GEORGE STRICKER.

No. 46.

Annapolis, March 9, 1776.

SIR: If you should receive. instructions, either from Charles Carroll, Esq˙, or the Committee of Observation of Baltimore County, to march to Baltimore Town, you are, with the utmost expedition, to proceed to that place, we having empowered them to order you there, if they should think it necessary. As soon as the ship-of-war sails from thence, you are to proceed immediately to Annapolis. Such baggage as may be necessary for you at Baltimore Town, you will carry with you; but the residue, with the spare arms, you will order to proceed directly here, under a guard.

We are, &c.

To Captain George Stricker.
