The Mayor and Councilmen of Ommen sent a communication to the Governor of the Province saying that those persons who petitioned the Governor not to send a military detachment were without adequate grounds for complaint. Those persons who have ill members of the family will not have to billet soldiers. Those who do are paid thirty five cents a person per day for expenses. The Mayor and Council would like to have the military detachment certainly through 5 December when an annual market is held. "The plenteous use of strong liquor then may give rise to unrest."
