To all brave, healthy, able bodied and well disposed men in this neighborhood who have an inclination to join and serve in the Gumlog Militia for the defense of the community of Beadland in the area of Jug Tavern,

The Gumlog Militia will be formed pursuant to the State of Georgia Militia Act of 1778. All able bodied male persons from the age of fifteen to sixty years are subject to serve in the Militia.

If any person shall neglect or refuse to appear or to produce any of said arms, furnature, ammunition, and accoutrements, or if when viewed and inspected they shall be found defective, every person offending shall forfeit a sum not exceeding five pounds to be recovered and levied as other fines are directed to be covered by the Militia Act of 1778.
