Tea at Annapolis, in Maryland, imported in the Brig Peggy Stewart, from London


Annapolis, October 18, 1774.

The Committee for Anne Arundel County received information from Baltimore that a considerable quantity of Tea was expected on board the Generous Friends, Captain Nairne. The ship arrived on Saturday evening, the 15th instant, and, on examination, it did not appear by the cockets, or entry at the Collector' s office, that any Tea had been on board. It appeared by a letter to Mr˙ Hodgkin, that six chests of Tea bad been shipped, and that Captain Nairne refused to sail from London until the Tea was re-landed, for which conduct Captain Nairne had the thanks. of this Committee. By order,

JOHN DUCKET, Cl' k Committee.
