[From Executive Letter Book.]

Office of Secretary of Congress, Oct. 7th, 1785.


I have received the Letters your Excellency did me the honor to write on the 23d and 30th of August last.

As the printer has not yet compleated the Journals of last month I have thought it improper to delay forwarding the enclosed Acts lately passed by the United States in Congress Assembled; one being a requisition for 1785, and the other respecting the Commissioners of the Continental Loan offices.

I take this occasion to inform your Excellency that having in consequence of the Act of Congress of 27th July last, received from Massachusetts and South Carolina sundry of their Legislative Acts, I have delivered to the Delegates of your State a set of each for the use of the Legislature, and hope soon to be favored with the Laws of your State to be distributed in like manner agreeable to the above mentioned Act.

With Great respect, I have the honor to be
Your Excellency's most obedient and
Most humble Servant,
