of the State of Tennessee: You are hereby requested to issue to each constable in your respective counties an order requiring him to make diligent inquiry at each house in his civil district for all muskets, bayonets, rifles, swords, and pistols belonging to the State of Tennessee, to take them into possession, and deliver them to you. A reward of one dollar will be paid to the constable for each musket and bayonet or rifle, and of fifty cents for each sword or pistol thus reclaimed.

A check for the amount will be promptly forwarded. It is hoped that every officer will exert himself to have this order promptly executed. Isham G. Harris, Governor, &c. Nashville, August 10, 1861.
