Proclamation!

The call for Slaves to work on Fortifications and other defensive works is hereby reduced to one-fourth of the male force in the counties specified in my proclamation of the 4th inst.
A reduction to this basis will be immediately made by discharging a portion of those already reported.
Slaveholders who have not responded, are required to forward at once their pro rata, otherwise they will be dealt with strictly according to military law.
