I beg leave to refer to a letter which I had the honor of writing to your Excellency under the 10th Inst. and which will accompany this. Yesterday your Excellency's favor of the 11th ulto. reached me. I immediately presented it to Congress, and from thence it was transmitted to the Board of Treasury.
Enclosed herein your Excellency will receive an Act of Congress of this date earnestly requesting an immediate restraint to be laid on the exportation of Beef and Pork from the State of North Carolina to which I refer, and remain with very great Respect Sir,
