Charlottesville Nov. 24. 1828
There is no printed copy of the memorial as finally agreed on. The Convention only had it printed as it was reported by the committee; and in that form also, together with the subsequent proceedings, it was published.
In complying with the resolution of the Convention in regard to the copy of the memorial &c to be furnished the Governor, I was at a loss to know whether it was intended that a copy of the memorial as amended, should be forwarded. Such seemed to be the import of the resolution; but as a copy of the proceedings was expressly required to be sent, and as I could not, without much repetition and some awkwardness, incorporate the former in the latter, I concluded it would be better to send the latter only.
Presuming however from your letter that you deem it of consequence that the Memorial, as adopted, should be sent, I have with as little delay as practicable, had a manuscript copy of it prepared, which I herewith forward you. It is, in all respects, what was finally agreed on. With great respect and regard, I am yr’s &c.
