ST. JAMES'S CHRONICLE OR THE BRITISH EVENING POST, Thursday, July 18, 1793
The Cumberland Militia, on their route to Chester, stopped at the end of the
cocunty, and refused to march any further, unless they were paid one guinea
per man on their quitting the county.
But the rain coming down very heavy, they went to Kendal, and next Morning
when the drums beat, they refused to appear under arms.
The officers at length, after two days' dispute, paid them half a guinea per
man, and promised the remainder in necessaries (in which way it is usual to
receive the whole), when they arrived at Chester.
