My Lord

I am honour'd with your Lorships wherein you mention Mr. Sterlings haveing aplyed to you for a licence for to officiate in Maryland how far it is necssary your lordship best knows but if I may not be improper in judging in my own case I doe conceive & am advised yt the liveings in Maryland are in my disposall Iam

your Lordships most obedient Humle sert

p. 46

My Lord,

I have been apply'd to by one Mr. Stirling for a licence to exercise ye office of a Minister in Maryland. My answer was, that your Lordp. claims ye Ecclesiastical Jurisdiction in tha Provicne, that you had lately sent over two ministers who have Beneficies there, without my Licensce or ?? orvbx? [probity?] and that I was unwilling to take any such step as he desired while a point of ? [jurisdiction?] remained in Suspence. In my own private judgment, the Charter conveys nothing but a Palatine Power, but it is not fitt that I should be a judge in my own case, and therefore I wish, as I have long done, that ye matter may be referred to ye attorney and sollicitor General, or to such other person or persons as shall be thought proper. I am under no concern ?? issue as to my self. All that I am at, is to have the thing ascertained one way or another, that if it should be found to be part of my duty, I may not be wanting in the discharge of it.

Jill Cogen signed me in, introduced me to finding aids, etc. after taking my image with a canon digital camera (signature as well); told me process is outlined in a computers and library journal; files kept in dbase about which she was not too thrilled;

see notes for collections consulted:

arranged with Lita Garcia in manuscripts (2nd floor) to see if I could view the originals of the Philip Calvert letters (for watermarks).

ordered copies of Philip Calvert photostats; Charles Calvert letters; seal (1623) of George Calvert (color) and letter (b&w); note that the seal Charles Calvert was using as his personal seal in the 1660s seemed identical to that used by George? perhaps was?

At end of day, talked with Frances Rouse (reader services?) about:

1) if they had a Koberger bible 2) getting a copy of the John Singleton Copley cartoon 3) getting reference for John Goode entrances and clearances 4) checking on provenance of our film (M 50) 256 reels of archival material from our holdings on file at the Huntington
