Volume 18, Page 794

HON. CHAS. THOMSON, SECRETARY OF CONGRESS TO GOV. CASWELL.
[From Executive Letter Book.]


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

(Circular.)

Sir:

I am sorry to inform your Excellency that since the first Monday in Nov. last the States have not Assembled in sufficient numbers to proceed to business. At present there are Delegates attending from Sundry States but Pennsylvania, Virginia and South Carolina are the only States unrepresented. This is the more fortunate as among other matters of great importance which demand the immediate attention and deliberation of Congress the disorders in Massachusetts seem to be hastening fast to a Crisis. The interest of the Confederacy certainly require a Speedy and full representation in Congress.

With the Greatest respect,
I have the Honor to be
Your Excellency's Most obedient
And most humble Servant,
CHAS THOMSON.
