* The Intention of this Requifition, was to, render the -Regular. Reofbients

* compleat, and fit for fuch immediate Service as His Majefty may think

* proper to employ them in ; thofe Regiments are at prefent fo fituated, as to

* make it impoffible for them to fend Officers and Parties into thefc Colonies,

* to recruit the Men* in Time; whereforethe Proportioning the Number of

* Recruits wanted among the Colonies, and the Supplying them, is the only
' Method that can be taken to render them of Ufe ; and if not agreed to
' by the Colonics, may be attended with very ill Confequ^nces to His Majefty 's

* Service, at a . Jundture' when every Means in our Power ftiould be exerted,
' to Diftrefs the Enemy. I muft therefore defire, Gentlemen, that you take

* this Matter, again under your Confideration, and do your Parts towards

* infuring Succefs, to Meafures abfolutely neceffary for our future Quiet and
