Description
From the conduct of David Stodder and six others arrested for riot, and from the indifference of the citizens to the enforcement of the laws, he had believed that it would be necessary to apply to the Governor for help; since then, the persons arrested have given security; Robert Townsend, who participated in the riot, was captain of the night watch; the justices broke him, but being supported by fifteen persons he set the watch that night; intends to issue warrants against all who took part in this; David Stodder is captain of the artillery company at Fell's Point; he refused to give security, and the people threatened to rescue him if committed to jail; very few citizens would have supported the sheriff, and the captains of the volunteer companies said that their men would not turn out; Stodder finally gave security, on the interposition of Mr. O'Donnell and other influential characters: will wait on the Governor the following Monday.
