I have the honour to transmit your Excellency the enclosed Acts of Congress of the 17th & 19th Instant, pointing out the different Measures they have taken for the Support of the southern Army.

Congress cannot but hope that the Measures they have taken, if executed with Punctuality and Despatch, will change the Face of Affairs in that Country.
