The Gentlemen and Officers Will Beat Up With Drums, Fifes, and a Band of Music Every Market-Day, in Manchester, Bolton, Rochdale, and the Adjacent Towns, Where Publick Entertainment Will Be Given, as Well to Recruits as Others, and Where Every Young Man Above 5 Feet 6 Inches, May Have Any Reasonable Bounty He Shall Ask for.
