Doc. 149.-Thompson's proclamation. August 1, 1861. Headquarters Missouri State Guard, Bloomfield, Mo. Missourians! Strike for your firesides and your homes! Homes! To the People of Missouri Having been elected to command the gallant sons of the First Military District of Missouri in the second war of independence, I appeal to all whose hearts are with us, immediately to take the field. By a speedy and simultaneous assault on our foes, we can, like a hurricane, scatter them to the withe earth, or force them from the soil of our State! Brave sons of the Ninth District, come and join us! We have plenty of ammunition, and the cattle on ten thousand hills are ours. We have forty thousand Belgian muskets coming; but bring your guns and muskets with you, if you have them; if not, come without them. We will strike your foes like a Southern thunderbolt, and soon our camp fires will illuminate the Merrimac and Missouri. Come, turn out! Jeff Thompson, Brig-General Commanding.
