Executive Department
Tallahassee Dec 1st 1858
Dear John Finlayson
President of the Senate

Sir
I herewith transmit to you a letter of the Secretary of State of New Hampshire, Enclosing Certain Resolutions adopted by the State which you will please communicate to the House over which you preside.
I have not acknowledged the receipt of those Resolutions, because of their offensive and incendiary character but do not feel authorized to withhold them from the General Assembly.
Very Respectfully
M. S. Perry
