Doc. 183. defence of Charleston, S. C.


Proclamation of the Mayor.

Mayor's office, November 22, 1861.
I, Charles Macbeth, Mayor of the city of Charleston, do hereby most earnestly appeal to the citizens of this city to come forward and assist the military and civil authorities in putting Charleston in a proper state of defence. A large number of laborers are wanted, and called for, on the works now progressing around the city; and surely there is a sufficient number of unemployed laborers to supply the demand. Proper arrangements will be made for the superintendence and subsistence of all laborers that may be tendered, and I confidently hope that every citizen of the city will, without any further appeal, come forward promptly and report at the City Hall the number of laborers he can contribute.

Charles MacBETHeth, Mayor. By the MayorJohn R. Horsey, Clerk of the Council.
