Richmond 27. June 1807.


I enjoy the highest gratification, in communicating to you the enclosed Resolutions, in obedience to an order of the Meeting by which they were adopted.

Permit me to add, that although men of all parties attended the meeting, it afforded me the heart-felt pleasure to observe, that party-spirit seemed on that momentous occasion to sleep: All appeared zealously to vie who should be foremost, in manifesting a patriotic indignation at the insult offered, and an invincible determination to avenge the wrong done, to the Government and to the People of our Country.

With the highest respect and esteem, I have the honor to be, Sir, Your mo. ob: Sert

Al: McRae. Chairman
