with, and second to the utmost the extraordinary Succours supplied
by his Kingdom of Great Britain for our Preservation and Defence

blies without Delay and to press them to raise with the utmost Dis-
patch as large a Body of Men as the Number and Circumstances of

their Inhabitants might allow, that the same being formed into
Regiments as far as shall be found convenient might be ready to
march from such Place of Rendezvous as shall be appointed by the
