'Kli Y Brethren and I thought it our Duty to our King ^ yix. Country, to you as well as ouifelves, to lay hold of the firft Opportunity Providence put in our Power, (hy the Departure of the Rebel Army from this Part of the Country),to return to this Capital, and, with your Help, Gentlemen, to endeavour to rettore and preferve the Peace of this City and adjacent Country, and as far as lies in our Power^ to revive the Civil Government. And to fhow to his Majefty and the World, how little AccelTion the South Part of Scotland has had to the recent Calamities it has felt, and which the Government ftill feel in the raoft feniible Manner. But as Military Forces is necelTary for protecting this City and Country, fo long as the open Rebellion fubfills, we have the Plealiire to acquaint you, that Field Marihal Wade loll no Time in ordering a Body of Troops to march to that City.- As in coming to this Place we have been honoured with the Company of the High-Sheriffs, and of you. Gentlemen, we ,look upon it as a Mark of your Zeal for the fpeedy and effectual Re-eftablifhment, of his Majefty's Government, in which, if the prefent Troubles do not very foon fubfide, your Help, Gentlemen, may be of great Service; for indeed, while the Rebels keep the Field, we muft both in City and Country, confider our-felvea as in a State of War, notwithftanding the prefent Glimpfe we have of fome f eace and Quiet; fo that it is ftill neceffary that Provifions be made tor preventing any future Difturbances from the Rebels or their Affociates. May we therefore prefumeto recommend it to the Heritors of every Parilh, to make up Lifts of all the able bodied Men in their refpective Bounds, proper to be trulled with Arms, in which great Afliftance may be got from the Reverend Minifters of the eftablifhed Church, who, (as they always do) have on this Occafion, given Tef-timony of their great Zeal for his Majefty's Government. And we recommend it to the Sheriffs now prefent, to give Notice to the Heritors that are abfent, and we recommend to them to deliver thefe Lifts to their refpective Sheriffs, to be by them tranfmitted to fuch Perfon or Perfons as liis Majefty ftiall appoint for that Purpofe. The Iboner that thefe Lifts be made up and tranfmitted, fo much fe-curer the prefent 1 ranquillity will be. As I have in my Eye a great many of the Inhabitants of this ancient City, I cannot omit condoling with them on their late difmal Situation, and their preient want of a regular Government; I hope his Majelty in his grcBt Goodncfs, will in due lime uke their Cafe under hia Royal Confideration, and that he will foon be convinced of the Loyalty and Zeal of, by far, the greateft Number of the Inhabicants of this City ; for arming fuch, if found neceffary and expedient, proper Orders are given by Field Marihal Wade : Mean time, what Affiftance my Brethren or I can give, for preferving the Peace of this Place fhall not be wanting. Thus I have endeavoured, fo far as I have been able to recoiled, to deliver to you, Gentlemen, the united Sentiments of my Brethren and me on this Occafion.
