The enclosed petition in behalf of Ezekiel Addams, an orphan, whose Parents both died in the public Service, in my opinion merits attention—Being convinced of the truth of the Facts set forth in the sd Petition, from Genl Moultrie’s Certificate & other enquiries that have been made, I cannot help recommending that measures may be taken for furnishing at the public expence a support for the Orphan abovemention’d agreeably to the Tenor of the Petition.
