From Isaac Shelby, 25 January 1814 (Abstract)

§ From Isaac Shelby. 25 January 1814, Frankfort. “I transmit to your Excellency the inclosed letter signed by some of the officers of this Government and by most of the members of the General Assembly of Kentucky now in Session.”

RC (DLC). 1 p.; in a clerk’s hand, signed by Shelby. Docketed in an unidentified hand: “Resolutions Legislature Ky.” Enclosure not found, but it was probably a copy of resolutions read in the Kentucky legislature on 10 Jan. 1814, stating support for JM’s administration, the acceptance of Russian mediation, and the embargo (Niles’ Weekly Register 5 [1813–14]: 403).
