At a meeting of the Commissioners appointed by the Convention, for superintending the manufactory of Small-Arms, at Fredericksburgh, on Monday the 13th of September, 1775:

The Commissioners intend to meet on the 10th day of October next, at Fredericksburgh, for the purpose of engaging a further number of Gunsmiths, and other artists, capable of managing that business in its various branches. All persons who are willing to enter into the service for a year at the least, and can come well recommended for skill and sobriety, are desired to attend; if agreed with, they will have good encouragement, according to their merit, and, at all events, be paid for their attendance and travelling. Good Locksmiths are much wanting.
