Whereas the Tulisanes, taking advantage of the absence of the troops
who are fighting the enemy at the front, have been making frequent
attacks on the towns of this district, the Government directs that said
towns defend themselves against said attacks to the best of their ability
with the assurance that they will be done justice. The Government is
treating with the General-in-chief with a view to commencing a campaign
shortly against the Tulisanes.
This circular is to be sent along the mountain range to the last
town, and every town shall make a copy of the same and receipt therefor.
