Essequebo and Demerary


( No. 118.

Saturday, the 30th of March.


By His Excellency Anthony Beaujon Esquire, Governor in and over the Colonies of Essequebo and Demerary, and their Dependencies &c. &c. &c.
Whereas it has been judged necessary to take some further measures, in addition to those that have already been adopted, for the better Security and Defence of this colony, I have thought proper to issue this my Proclamation, hereby ordering that on the appearance of an Enemy off the Coast, all Proprietors of Estates on the Coast, or their Representatives, are immediately to dismantle their Boats or other Craft that may be in the Trenches, so as to render them unserviceable, and also to pull down the Poles or other Marks that shew the Channels into the Canal or Trenches, and in the event of the Enemy shewing a disposition to Land on any Estate, to let Water into the Trenches of such Estate, and if possible, to overflow part of it, so as to prevent their advancing: - The Horses, Mules and Cattle, as well as Negroes on the Estates, are then to be sent aback as far as possible; all Carts and Carriages to be made useless by taking off the Wheels, and all possible obstacles to be thrown in the way to oppose the Enemy, - Whilst the zeal and spirit that has already been manifested in all parts of this Colony, and the readiness which the Masters of British Ships and vessels in this River, and the brave Seamen on board of the same, have evinced in coming forward to aid in the defence of the Colony, afford the best founded hopes that the resources of the Country, thus brought forward, and rendered efficient by the well known Gallantry of His Majesty's Troops, and the skill and experience of their Commander and Officers, will not fail of ensuring Success against any attempts of the Enemy.
Given at the Kings [sic] House in the Town of Stabroek, Demerary, this 29th day of March 1805.
Anthony Beaujon.
By Command,
P. F. Tinne, D. Secty. of the Colony.
God Save the King!
