I do myself the honor to enclose to your Excellency (number one and two) two Acts of Congress—the first is of the fourth and the second of the tenth instant. It is my particular Duty, Sir, to pray the attention of your State to these Acts. The subject is important and will, I doubt not, be considered according to its magnitude.
Number three is an order of the fifth Instant. I have thought it most proper to send you the whole Letter referred to in that order, as also of the Letter of the thirtieth of July enclosing estimates for the ensuing year which has a necessary relation to the other. When Congress shall have finally determined on these objects, I shall do myself the honor to transmit the Result.
