Letter from William Lax to Maryland Council of Safety

v5:762

WILLIAM LUX TO MARYLAND COUNCIL OF SAFETY.

Baltimore, April 2, 1776.

GENTLEMEN: The bearer, John Henderson, came from Point-Comfort, in an oyster boat, and another vessel with corn; and having no permit from any Committee in Virginia, we have detained his boat agreeable to your order, until he produce one. He thinks it necessary to make application to your honourable Board for a release, and has desired a line from our Committee to inform you of his situation.

Per order of the Committee:

I am, gentlemen, your most obedient servant,

WILLIAM LUX, Deputy-Chairman.

To the Honourable the Council of Safety of Maryland.
