Summary
Contains the report of the Committee appointed to inquire into the present state of the Public Guard. According to the Committee, the Public Guard is insufficient for the purposes for which it was instituted in 1800 when combined with the services required at the Penitentiary. The Committee resolved that the Public Guard be discontinued, that ten additional turnkeys be employed as a guard in the Penitentiary, and that a company be raised from the militia of the City of Richmond. Enclosed is a letter from Alexander Quarrier, Captain of the Public Guard, to Hugh Mercer, Chairman of the Committee, transmitting a return of the strength of the Public Guard. Quarrier also comments on the insufficient number of men in his command. Lastly, there is a letter from John Brockenbrough, Cashier of the Bank of Virginia, to Mercer regarding the services of the Public Guard as watchmen to the Bank
