REWARDS AND THE MILITARY
4th April 1812
We, are requested, in order to correct an erroneous opinion, to state, that the Military are entitled equally with
other persons to the large rewards now offered for such information as may lead to the conviction of the offenders who have lately, committed depredations upon the property of individuals in this
Riding; and that it is their duty— a duty there is no reason to think them indisposed to perform, to lay before the proper authorities any information calculated to restore this District to a
state of tranquillity and confidence, so unhappily disturbed by the lawless and misguided ; and owing to which, at night in particular, Leeds and Huddersfield have, with their picquets, military
patrols, &c, assumed the appearance rather of Garrison Towns, than of the peaceable abodes of Trade and Industry.
