Feb. 28. 1805.
To the Senate and
House of Representatives of the United States
I now lay before Congress a statement of the Militia of the United States, according to the returns last recieved from the several states. it will be percieved that some of these are not of recent dates, and that from the states of Maryland, Delaware & Tennissee no returns are stated. as far as appears from our records none were ever rendered from either of these states.
