As Chairman of a Committee of Congress appointed to take into consideration the state of Indian affairs in the Southern Department; I do myself the honor to request that your Excellency will transmit as speedily as possible any information which may throw light upon this subject, and more especially to furnish an accurate acct. of the boundary lines at present established between the Citizens of North Carolina and the several nations of Indians which inhabit that State with the dates of the same.

I have the honor to be, &c.,
