inf. For what length of time were
they, in fact, drafted into the service i
It is plain that this can be ascertained
only by the orders under which they
were called out. Among the papers sn
nexed, the order of Governor Blount
fiies their time of service expressly at
SIX MONTHS. Yet this order is not
printed by the authora of the pamphlet
before mentioned, although very impor
tant in their view, to a right judgment in
the case. Was it omitted for any fair
purpose f Can a good cause require the
keeping back of a .materialparof, the
