necessary voucher and receipt, and that there still remains in the treasury the sum of £. 3300 4 4.
    It also appears to your committee, that William Marbury, Esquire, agent, has, in virtue of an act
entitled, An act to appoint an agent for the year one thousand seven hundred and ninety-six, taken
bonds to the amount of £. 9099 4 11, which said bonds are deposited in the treasury-office, and that
the said agent has transferred to the trustee the sum of 62424 dollars 91 cents 6 per cent. stock.
    Your committee beg leave further to report, that it appears by an act, entitled, An act to establish
funds to secure the payment of the state debt within six years, and for the punctual payment of the
annual interest thereon, passed November session, 1784, certain funds were pledged for the redemption
of the emissions of June, 1780, which were finally to be redeemed in the year 1790; that by
an act, entitled, An act respecting the debtors and creditors of this state, passed November session,
1789, the whole funds of the state were consolidated and made payable in specie, or certificates
issued by this state, by which means the said emissions have not been redeemed; and it appearing to
your committee, that the faith of the state is pledged for the redemption of said emissions, and it also
appearing to your committee, that there still remains of those emissions in circulation the sum of
£. 13756 0 0 principal and interest, they are of an opinion the legislature ought to provide funds
adequate for the redemption thereof, with the accruing interest thereon.

of the principal of the said debt the sum of £. 2167 0 0.  Your committee suggest the propriety of
passing a law, limitting the time for the redemption of the said debt, and providing funds competent
to carry the same into effect.
    All which is submitted to the honourable house.
