North Carolina. General Assembly
January 07, 1787
Volume 22, Page 1005

EXTRACT FROM THE PROCEEDINGS OF THE SENATE, 7TH JANUARY, 1787.

Resolved, That the General Assembly of North Carolina view a treaty calculated to deprive a respectable part of her citizens of their property and to endanger their lives, with the utmost horror and honest indignation; and that it be represented to Congress in the strongest terms that the late treaty at Hopewell, instead of procuring the blessings of peace to the citizens of this State, will most likely produce the contrary effect and involve them in all the horrors of war, as the savages appear much more hostile since than ever before.

Extract from the Senate Journal, though no part of the resolution as agreed by the House of Commons.

Witness:
S. HAYWOOD, Clerk Senate.

The part of the resolution relative to the Indian treaty held at Hopewell which is contained on this leaf was rejected by the House of Commons, though agreed to by the Senate.

S. HAYWOOD.
