Virginia Delegates in Congress to Benjamin Harrison
Annapolis Jan 23. 1784
The inclosed papers from Oliver Pollock came to our hands a few days ago. Ignorance of the organization 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 honour to be with the most profound respect & esteem Your Excellencys Most obedient and most humble servants,
RC (Vi); in TJ’s hand, signed by the delegates; endorsed: “Letter from the Virga. Delegates in Congress enclosing one from Mr. Pollock. Jany 23 84.” Enclosures: Oliver Pollock to the Virginia Delegates, 20 Nov. 1783 (Vi), q.v.; copy of Virginia Delegates to Pollock (Vi), following; and other unidentified papers.
