HON. CHAS. THOMSON, SEC'RY OF CONGRESS, TO GOV. CASWELL.

Sir:

I have the honor of enclosing you an Act of the United States in Congress assembled passed the 15th Inst. for negotiating a peace with the Southern Indians and of the appointment of Commissioners for that purpose.

As the happy accomplishment of this business nearly concerns the peace of the Union and the safety of the frontier settlements Congress rely with confidence on your Zeal for the public welfare, and on the exertions of your State, as far as may be necessary for the attainment of so desirable an object, and for bringing it to a speedy and happy issue.

With great respect, I have the honor to be your Excellency's mo. ob. & humb. servt.,
CHAS. THOMSON.
