After Orders

The strength of the Army in this Cantonment being considerably diminished by the number of men lately furloughed, the order of the 16th of April directing a General, Field officers, and Quarter Master to be of the day; and also a regiment to parade every day for duty, is dispenced with. For the present there will be one feild officer and an Adjutant of the day—and the Guards only, will form on the Grand parade at 9 o’clock in the morning.
