Milledgeville, Nov. 1, 1862. To the Planters of Georgia: since my last appeal to some of you, I am informed by Brig.-General Mercer, commanding at Savannah, that but few hands have been tendered. When the impressments made by General Mercer, somGeneral Mercer, some weeks since, were loudly complained of, it was generally said that, while the planters objected to the principle of impressment, they would promptly furnish all the labor needed, if an appeal were made to them. I am informed that General Mercer noGeneral Mercer now has ample authority to make impressments. If, then, a sufficient supply of labor is not tendered within ten days from this date, he will resort immediately to that means of procuring it, with my full sanction, and, I doubt not, with the sanction oto contributed send me a sufficient number to fill their places, I pledge myself to send back to their masters the negroes who are now at work. Until this is done, necessity compels me to retain them. Hugh W. Mercer, Brigadier-General Commanding.
