Hence he has called for troops to enter the military service of the State, not to aid, but to oppose the Government of the United States. The troops under my command are stationed in your midst by the proper authority of our Government. They are amongst you not as enemies but as friends and protectors of all loyal citizens.

It is my duty to protect all loyal citizens in the enjoyment and possession of all their property, sl
