The Officers and Soldiers, whose names have been recorded on the Lists, in the preceding Muster Rolls, fully justify the assertion, that if occasion had occurred, for them to exhibit their devotion to their Country, they would have added to the reputation of its Arms: The alacrity with which, they repaired to their stations, and the Military spirit which prevailed at the time, authorizes the conclusion, that should another warlike struggle occur, the Volunteer Companies Of This City, will not be in the Rear, in Discipline, Military Spirit, and Patriotism.

Besides, the Military Gentlemen, who were on duty in the several Camps, below the City, in 1814, a large body of citizens, (among them, a great number of Mechanics, of various descriptions) Volunteered their services, to build Fortifications, on the West bank of the Schuylkill, in order to give the enemy, should they approach on the West bank of the Delaware, a sufficiently warm reception! The alacrity, which characterized the general turn out, to erect Fort Crispin, near Gray's Ferry, prove, that in the hour of danger, party spirit was hushed, and that only one sentiment, actuated the whole community.

Men, who voluntarily came forward, on such occasions, may not be equal to the forced marches, of a regular Army; but, on their own soil, when in defense of their homes, their country, and their firesides, they will be Invincible!
