To the People of

We have seen & urged upon the citizens of this place the necessity at this time of returning the writs against prominent men of your denomination for supposed criminal offences and they will be forthwith returned and no apprehensions need be entertained of any anoyance from this source. We have heard only of only two writs being out one for for and one each of which will be returned as soon as the officer can be seen. nor [Lyman] Prentis nor have no writs of a criminal character against any person in — be assured this will be done. We sincerely hope that peace & good order is permanently restored to the whole country
