Regimental Orders


Charlestown, June 15, 1775.

The main guard of this day is to consist of one Captain, two subalterns, four sergeants, four corporals, and forty privates. The captain of the main guard is to keep a trusty sergeant with the sentries, in the street below the Guard-House, to examine all passengers; and let none pass without showing proper passes in the day time, and none to pass after nine o' clock at night, without giving the countersign; and no sentry is to set down on his post; and when any field officers pass them, to stand with their fire-locks rested. No soldier to swim in the water on the Sabbath day, nor any other day to stay in the water any longer than is necessary to wash themselves.

JAMES READ, Colonel.
