TO HIS EXCELLENCY THE PRESIDENT OF CONGRESS.
(From Executive Letter Book.)

State OF No. Carolina, June 5th, 1787.

Sir:

I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt of your Excellency’s letter, signed in Congress the 13th of April last, containing Resolutions recommending a repeal of all Acts and parts of Acts repugnant to the Treaty of Peace entered into between the United States of America and Great Britain, which I will take the earliest opportunity in my power of laying before the Legislature of this State, and I have not the smallest fear but the importance of the subject with the Cogent reasons assigned by Congress will have proper weight with that Assembly and produce the desired effect.

I have the Honor to be, with the greatest respect,
Sir, your most obed. Servant,
R. CASWELL.
