And whereas it is equitable that similar provisions should be extended to the widows and orphans of the militia being citizens of this State who have been slain in actual service.

Be it therefore further enacted by the authority aforesaid, That when the commanding officer of any regiment or corps of militia, shall certify that any Person belonging to his regiment or corps was during the late war slain in the field and the time when his name and rank and that he left a widow or orphan child or children as the case may be, purporting that this State is indebted to the bearer in the sum therein mentioned and such certificate shall bear interest from the time the money became due and be received in payment upon the purchases of all forfeited estates and also in payment for the waste and unappropriated lands for the amount thereof.
