Miscellaneous, 1695

1695 (?) 2,220. Minute on the representations of Virginia and Maryland as to the assistance required to be given by them to New York. In October, 1692, orders were sent to the Governments of Maryland, Virginia, Pennsylvania and New England to agree upon a quota of men and other assistance to be given by them to New York; but some of the Governments having omitted to send Commissioners for the adjustment of the quotas, nothing was done therein. In August, 1694, the quotas were fixed in Council, and orders sent to the Colonies and to New York respecting the same. The General Assemblies of Virginia and Maryland now represent that though the supply of New York may add to their security, yet owing to their poverty, their debts and the need for defending their own frontiers, they can afford no assistance to New York, and pray to be exempted. The Agents for Massachusetts have also begged for exemption. [Board of Trade. Virginia, 36. pp. 299–300.]
