[. The islands from Charleston. South,
die abaudoned rice fields along the rivers
for thirty miles back from the sea, and
die country bordering the St. Johns riv
er. Florida, are reserved and set apart
for the settlement of the negroes now
rr.ade free by the acts of war and the
Proclamation of the President of the
11. At Beaufort, Hilton Head, Savan
nah, Fernandina, St. Augustine, and
Jacksonville, the blacks may remain in
their chosen or accustomed vocations;
but on the islands, and in the settle
ments hereafter to be established, no
white person whatever, unless military
officers and soldiers detailed for duty,
will be permitted to reside; and the sole
and exclusive management of affairs will
be left to the freed people themselves,
subject only to the United States mili
tary authority and the acts of Congress.
By the laws of war, and orders of tho
President of the United Slates, the negro
:i : s and must be dealt with as such.
He cannot be subjected to conscription
or forced military service, save by the
written orders of the highest military
authority of the Department, under such
regulations as 'the President or Congress
may prescribe, domestic servants, black
smiths, carpenters, or other mechanics
will be free to select their own work and
residence, but the young and a* ’c-bodied
negroes must be encouraged \ > enlist as
soldiers in the service of the United
States, to contribute their share towards
maintaining their own freedom and se
curing their rights as citizens of the
United States. Negroes so enlisted will
be organized into companies, battalions
and regiments under the orders of the
United States military authorities, and
willjbe paid, fed and clothed according
to lawn The bounties paid on enlistment
may, with the consent of the recruit, go
to assist his family and settlement in
procuring agricultural implements, seed,
tools, boats, clothing and other articles
accessary for their livelihood.
111. Whenever three respectable ne
groes, heads of families, shall desire to
.settle on land, and shall have selected
for that purpose au island or a locality
clearly defined, within the limits above
designated, the Inspector of Settlements
and Plantations will himself, or by such
subordinate officer as he may appoint,
give them a license to settle such island
or district, and afford them such assist
ance as he can to enable them to estab
lish a peacable agricultural settlement.
The three parties named will subdivide
the land, under the supervision ot the
Inspector, among themselves, and such
others as may choose to settle near them,
3o that each family shall have a plot of
not more than (40) forty acres of tillable
ground, and when it borders on some
water channel, with not more than eight
hundred feet front, in the possession of
which land the military authorities will
afford them protection until such time as
they can protect themselves, or until
Congress shall regulate their title.. The
Quartermaster may, on the requisition of
the Inspector of Settlements and Planta
tions, place at the disposal of the. Inspec
for one or more of the captured steamers,
to ply between the settlements aad one
or more of the commercial points here
tofore named in orders, to afford the set
tlers the opportunity to supply their
necessary wants and to sell the products
of their land and labor.
IV. Whenever a negro has enlisted in
the military service of the United States,
he may locate his family in any one of
the settlements at pleasure, and acquire
a homestead and all other rights and
privileges of a settler as though present
in person. In like manner negroes may
settle their families and engage on board
the gunboats, or in * fishing, or in the
navigation of the inland waters, without
losing any claim to land or other advan
tages derived from this system. But no
one, unless absent on Government ser
vice, will be entiled to claim any right to
land or property in any settlement,, by
virtue of those orders.
V. In order to carry out this system of
settlement, a General Officer will be de
tailed as Inspector of Settlements and
Plantations, whose duty it shall be to
visit the settlements, to regulate their
police and general management, and
who will furnish personally to each head
of a family, subject to the approval of
the President of the United States, a
possessory title in writing, giving as near
as possible the description of boundaries,
and who shall adjust all claims or con
flicts that may arise under the same,
subject to the like approval, treating
such tides altogether as possessory. The
same General Officer will also be charged
with the enlistment and organization of
the negro recruits, and protecting their
interests while so absent from their set
tlements ; and will be governed by the
Rules and Regulations prescribed by the
War Department for such purpose.
VI. Brigadier General R. Saxon is
hereby appointed Inspector of Settle
ments and plantations, and will at once
enter on the performance of his duties.
No change is intended or desired in the
Settlement now on Beaufort Island, nor
will any rights to property heretofore
acquired be effected thereby.
