You will turn over to Mr. Packard lessee of Mosville Plantation, all the hands that your recruiting officers have conscripted and taken from said plantation.

If you continue to corrupt the hands in the employ of lessees, duly appointed by the Commdr. who represents the government, you will be arrested and reported to Capt. Hd. Qr. for disobedience of orders.
