XVIII. Authority is hereby granted Major W. S. Basinger, commanding, &c., at Mattoax, to impress 100 slaves from the county of Amelia, Va., for labor on the works now in course of construction at Flat Creek and Mattoax Stations. In making the impressments a care should be had that those who have heretofore furnished slaves should, as a general rule, be passed over, in order that the burden may fall on all alike.
