HON. ELIAS BOUDINOT.
[From Executive Letter Book.]

Philadelphia, 24th February, 1783.

Sir:

I have the honor to enclose a resolution of Congress, founded on reasons of the utmost importance to the United States. I need not add arguments to inforce a measure, which must appear, on the first blush, of absolute necessity, especially when from the critical state of our affairs, all the wisdom of the States is required.

I have the honor to be, &c.,
ELIAS BOUDINOT.
