By His Excellency JOHN RUTLEDGE, Esq˙ , President and Commander-in- Chief of SOUTH CAROLINA:

Whereas it appears to me necessary for the publick service to call the General Assembly and Legislative Council before the time to which they stand adjourned: I have therefore thought fit to issue this Proclamation, requiring them, and they are hereby required, to meet at Charlestown, on Tuesday, the 17th day of September next, then and there to sit for the despatch of divers weighty and important affairs.

Given under my hand and the seal of South Carolina, at Charlestown, this 5th day of August, in the year of our Lord one thousand seven hundred and seventy-six.
