--No one is authorized to collect Virginia arms in this city, or elsewhere in this State, unless they show written authority from me.
This notice is not of course to interfere with the authority of the Adjutant General of the State in any order he may have issued, or may issue hereafter upon this subject; but is given to prevent impositions by those having no authority, and who make no return to this office.
