CHAS. THOMSON TO THE GOVERNOR OF NORTH CAROLINA.
[From Executive Letter Book.]

(Circular.)


Office of Secretary of Congress,
Sept. 17, 1788.

Sir:

The several attempts already too successfully made, & particularly a recent one countenanced & promoted by the British Governor of New Providence, to pour into the United States Convicts, have induced Congress to pass the recommendation of which I have the honor to transmit to your Excellency a Copy herewith enclosed. I trust this recommendation will command the earliest attention of your Legislature and that they will take effectual measures to vindicate the honor of their Country & put a stop to such nefarious Attempt.

With the greatest respect, &c., &c.,
CHARLES THOMSON.
