In the Hunts Militia, Bonnett received from Dobbins, Dobbins from Greene, Greene from White and White from himself. J.G. Green. If this privilege is withheld, it will be a serious loss to himself and his family, especially as it is doubtful whether he can receive his retiring allowance because he holds another appointment in the Queen's service.
