Governors Message]

To the Senate and House of Representatives:

In consequence of the inconveniences resulting from the situation and extent of the second Division of the Militia of this State, the Council have unanimously advised to the formation of a new Division, to be denominated the eighth Division. An order has thereon been issued from carrying this arrangement into effect.

I lay before the Legislature a copy of the proceedings, to the end that the office of Major General of said new Division may be filled agreeably to the provisions of the Constitution.
