Calvert County (Maryland) Committee



April 5, 1775.

In consequence of an information received, that Mr˙ Alexander Ogg, merchant at Huntingtown, had sold and was selling his goods at a greater advance upon the prime cost than was recommended by the Provincial Convention, held at Annapolis in December, 1774, the Committee met at Huntingtown on Saturday the 25th March, and continued by adjournment till this day.

Ordered, That the Clerk give notice to said Ogg, and desire his attendance immediately before the Committee. Accordingly he attended, and produced his shop-notes and books, from which it appeared he had sold at a much higher advance than one hundred and fifty per cent, on the prime cost.

On motion, Resolved, That said Ogg has violated the Association, and therefore ought to be deemed an enemy to the cause of America. Signed per order,

PAT˙ SIM SMITH, Clerk pro tem.
