[Militia?] General Order. [heading]
[illegible] the Commander in Chief takes [illegible]rtunity to express his thanks to Major [illegible] Officers, Non-Commissioned Officers, [illegible], of the George-Town Brigade of Mili- [illegible] general good appearance on the Inspec- [illegible] 20th instant.
[illegible] Simpson and the Troop of Cavalry, de- [illegible] credit for their activity in getting equipt [illegible]ounted, as they appeared on that day; and [illegible]cellency does not doubt, but, by the spirit ma- [illegible]ted, they will soon become an efficient troop.
The highest praise is due to Capt. Albouy and the Artillery Company, for the prompt and correct manouver, in which they went through their exercise and served the field-pieces.
Captain Batty and the Rifle Company, drew His Excellency's most particular attention, for their steadiness in the ranks, exactness in marching, wheeling, and the manner they performed the evolutions - which were done with a correctness that reflects great honor upon every member of that company.
The First Battalion is also intitled [sic] to His Excellency's approbation for the improvement made, considering the number of recruits lately joined, the disadvantage of the rainy season, and the bad state of the parade-ground, having constantly prevented the practice of marching - which is so essential for a regiment to go through the evolutions with correctness; and His Excellency takes this opportunity to recommend to the Militia to persevere in practising marching, as the only means of attaining that steadiness required by a battalion, to perform the manoeuvres with precision.
The Commander in Chief flatters himself to derive addition gratification, on inspecting the George-Town [sic] Brigade of Militia, on a future day.
