Doc. 73.-Proclamation of Governor Parker.

A Proclamation

EXECUTIVE Chamber, Trenton, N. J., June 16, 1863.
Jerseyen: The State of Pennsylvania is invaded. A hostile army is now occupying and despoiling the towns of our sister State. She appeals to New-Jersey, through her Governor, to aid in driving back the invading army. Let us respond to the call upon our patriotic State with unprecedented zeal.

I therefore call upon the citizens of this State to meet and organize into companies, and report to the Adjutant-General of the State, as soon as possible to be organized into regiments as the militia of New-Jersey, and press forward to the assistance of Pennsylvania in this emergency. The organization of these troops will be given in General Orders as soon as practicable.

Joel Parker. Attest: S. M. Dickinson, Private Secretary.
