No. 23

[Council to Delegates in Congress]

Gent" We have sent by Mr Isaac McHard 200,000 Continental
Dollars, to be delivered over to the Continental Treasurer in Phila-
delphia, being in Part of the 1.234.350 Dollars required of our State
by the Resolution of Congress of the 19th of May last. We are much
concerned it is not in our Power to comply fully with that Demand
at this Time. When that Requisition was received, our Treasury
was quite exhausted, owing chiefly to the continental Drains by
Payments of considerable Sums, for the Use of Congress, the Assess-
ments imposed, previous to the Resolution, have not yet been col-
lected; the sum remitted was procured by Loan. We must request
you to represent these Facts to Congress, and to inform them that this
State, from a Sense of the vast Importance of complying with the
Resolution to the Extent, have made every Exertion to procure the
Money and that we shall not remit our Attention, til the whole
is forwarded
