As for what concernes the security of that Place, His Majesty is confident that you will doe in it the part of a gallant man; And for your better Assistance therein, His Majestie hath sent you his Guarde of Foote, which are the only armed men he hath as yett to supply you with, but if you can find a meanes of arming more, he hath men enough to send you, and wee dayly expect store of Muskets from Bristoll which as soone as they come you shall not want for Numbers. In the mean tyme His Majesty doubts not but as a Sheriffe you will summon in the traind Bands with provisions for themselves and what armes they can bring. His Majesty bidds you relye upon all the assistance and encouragement that hee can give you.
