REPLY OF NEW YORK JURY TO CHIEF-JUSTICE JAY.
May it please your Honors:
The very Excellent Charge given to the Grand Jury of this District by his Honor the Chief Judge of the Federal Court, demands our thanks and particular attention; and that it may be more influential and impress the mind of our fellow citizens at large beg leave to ask a Copy of it for the press. Your Honors may be assured we shall in our several departments when dismissed exert our influence to promote peace, good order, and a strict regard to the laws of the United States agreeably to the Constitution so lately adopted; and we trust the judicial department will ever be filled, as it now is, with gentlemen of the first characters for learning, integrity, and ability.
We wish your Honors the Divine presence in all your circuits, and that you may be continually guarded by a good Providence.
Benj. Austin, Foreman.
May 4th, 1790.
