Arms belonging to George Fitzhugh and Walter Dulany, seized by Captain Bosley, returned to the Committee


At a meeting of the Committee, on Friday, March 22, 1776:

Present: William Lux, Chairman pro tempore, William Buchanan, Thomas Harrison, William Aisquith, John Moale, John Smith, John Boyd. Captain James Bosley returned two Fire-locks seized by him, viz: One Fusee, belonging to George Fitzhugh, and one belonging to Walter Dulany, both of which were valued at three Pounds ten Shillings, each, by Messieurs George Woolsey and David Stewart, upon oath.

Mr˙ Hugh Young applied to the Committee for the Schooner Ninety-Two, which he had engaged to load on account of the Province; but as they are of opinion that it is necessary to keep her, to have her sunk in case of need, they think it inexpedient to deliver her up.

The Council of Safety having directed this Committee to prove the Cannon belonging to Captain William Stone, they appoint Captain Nathaniel Smith, Captain John Fulford, and Lieutenant Bouchier, to perform that service, and return an account of their number and sizes to this Committee.
