Sir:

The Legislature of this State, having desired me to write to the several Governors of the United States, requesting that they would be pleased to furnish me with a list of the names of those persons, who, have been proscribed or banished from their respective States: I therefore to that end now do myself the honor of addressing this my circular to you, and will be much obliged to you for your answer of compliance with the said request, as soon as may be convenient, that I might lay the matter before them at their next sitting.

I have the honor to be, &c.,
BENJAMIN GUERARD.
