CAPTAIN NICHOLSON TO MARYLAND CONVENTION.

Baltimore, July 4, 1776 — five o' clock.

GENTLEMEN: I was favoured with your commands last evening, but too late to get the ship under way. Am now proceeding with the ship and tenders, and shall lose no opportunity in getting to Annapolis as soon as possible, to wait your further commands.

I am, gentlemen, your most obliged humble servant to command,

JAMES NICHOLSON.

To the Honourable the Convention of Maryland.
