TO THE GOVERNOR OF VIRGINIA1 (BENJAMIN HARRISON)
v. s. a.
Annapolis, Jan. 23, 1784.
—The inclosed papers from Oliver Pollock came to our hands a few days ago. Ignorance of the organisation of our government probably led him to make this improper address, on a business so foreign to the line of our duty. We take the liberty on his behalf of inclosing them to your Excellency with a copy of our answer to him.
We have the honor to be with the most profound respect & esteem Your Excellency’s most obedient and most humble servants
