Full Title: [Circular accompanying the resolution of the general assembly relative to the Pennsylvania proposed amendment to the constitution].

Author: Virginia. Executive

Place Issued: Richmond

Issuing Press: Samuel Pleasants

Description: Unrecorded


No copy known extant; Pleasants was ordered on February 1, 1810, to print copies of this letter for the governor to distribute among the Virginia's and Pennsylvania's congressional delegations, with the resolution itself (1810.015) as an enclosure; Pennsylvania's legislature proposed creating a tribunal to resolve disputes between state and federal governments; the Assembly rejected that proposal on the grounds that such was the function of the Supreme Court, when it acted according to its proper constitutionally-limited role.
