Observations: Those Marked with the Letter M are pretty Large Musketts & those Marked F are small Fusies, and those Marked with C are Carabines and those P, Pistols. Those in the Best Order are General but tolerable & some of them want a little Repair. But those in the Second Column are very Bad and Good for little or Nothing.
