WILLIAMSBURG, June 21, 1770.

THE officers of the first troops who engaged in the service of this colony (before the battle of the Meadows, in the year 1754) or their representatives, are requested to meet at Fredericksburg on the first day of August next, in order to consider of some matters relative to their grant of land. A meeting at this time may be essential to their interests, and therefore it is hoped that they will not fail to attend accordingly.
