The companies commanded by Captains Trent, Shannon, Deimer and Perry, were recruited under authority of a proclamation issued by Governor George Thomas, dated June 9, 1746, reciting the King's orders of the ninth of April, to raise four hundred men within the Province of Pennsylvania, to be employed in concert with the regulard forces in the immediate reduction of Canada. The instructions for recruiting, together with a copy of Capt. Shannon's commission will be found in Pa. Archives, First Series, Vol. I, pages 688, 689. These companies went into winter quarters at Albany, N. Y., 1746-1747, and were finally discharged October 13, 1747, "the late intended expedition against Canada having been by his Majesty laid aside for the present." [Votes of Assembly, vol.
