Emmerick's Chasseurs
Report of Recruits

February 18th, 1778

On Wednesday last, passed through this city, a considerable number of fine recruits, very personable young fellows, the sons of reputable farmers at Cortlandt's Manor, Phillipsborough, and places adjacent to Kingsbridge, in New-York government, lately inlisted in Emmerick's corps of chasseurs;

stopping at General TRYON's quarters, they had the honour of receiving from his Excellency a handsome treat, and of testifying to their worthy protector and benefactor, by loud acclamations of joy, and other demonstrations, their alacrity in the service of their King and country.

What a pleasing sensation must this afford to every true friend of his King and country? and at the same time animate others to imitate their laudable example.

The Royal Gazette, (New York), February 21st, 1778.
