Men of Lewis County!

wish to join this Company, will meet at the Court House, on Saturday, the 15th
inst., at one o’clock P. M., for permanent organization, election of officers,
Young men of Lewis County!
— let us rally around the “Old Flag,” resolved to vindicate those “principles
of Constitutional Liberty for which our Fore-Fathers so freely shed their
blood.— Now is the time.
