CHAS. THOMSON, ESQ., TO GOV. CASWELL, ENCLOSING A RESOLVE OF CONGRESS.
[From Executive Letter Book.]

Office of Secretary of Congress,
August 14th, 1786.

Sir:

I have the Honor of transmitting to your Excellency herewith enclosed an Act of the United States in Congress Assembled, again presenting to the view of North Carolina, South Carolina & Georgia the recommendation of the 6th of September, 1780. As the Complyance with this recommendation is of great importance to the Union, I have kept this Act separate from those transmitted with my Letter of the 12th, that going singly it may become the Sole object of attention; but though it is made the subject of a Special Letter, yet the Act of the 6th of September, 1780, which is also enclosed, states so fully the motives, end and reasons of this recommendation, that I have only to request, that your Excellency will be pleased to present this Subject again to the view of your Legislature, and favor me with the result of their determination thereon, which from their wisdom, justice and magnanimity will, I trust, be consonant to the Expectations of their sister States and the wishes of Congress.

With the Greatest Respect,
I have the Honor to be,
Your Excellency's most Obedient
And most Humble Servt.,
CHAS. THOMSON.
