CAVALRY ORDERS. [heading]
Demerary, March 11, 1806.
Major A. Blair feels the highest
satisfaction in having it in his power to communicate to the gentlemen of the
Corps a copy of the Orders issued by his Excellency Brigadier-General
Montgomerie [sic] on the 10th instant, so very highly flattering and honorable
COLONIAL ORDERS. [heading]
Demerary, March 10, 1806.
Brigadier General Montgomerie [sic] is
pleased to express his great satisfaction at the soldier-like appearance of the
Cavalry this day. The uniformity of their dress and appointments is highly
creditable to them, considering the short time they have been embodied; and,
from the exertion already shown, the Brigadier-General is satisfied that, on
all occasions when their services are required, their conduct will be
creditable to themselves, and useful to the Colony.
To Major Blair,
Commanding Demerary Cavalry.
The Corps will parade on Sunday, the 23d
instant, at Ten o'Clock in the Morning.
