Those Gentlemen who have been hitherto excused from Militia Duty merely from Courtesy, (as having been formerly Officers in the British or Colonial Service;) and in expectation of their forming One or more Troops of Cavalry; it is hoped, will now immediately enroll themselves in Major Blair's Corps; as they cannot be excused any longer from Serving.
Other Gentlemen who have not yet joined the Militia Infantry, and who may prefer to Serve in Major Blair's Cavalry, have his Excellency the Governor's Permission to make their Option. An immediate decision is requisite, as the Militia Regulations shall be justly Enforced.
The Acting Adjutant of Major Blair's Corps, (G. J. Furnace Esq.) will call on gentlemen of the above description, (of whom a list is given:) and request to know which Corps they will join, which he will report to me as soon as possible, that I may do the same to His Excellency the Gevernor [sic].
