By the SENATE, December 19, 1807.
Gentlemen of the House of Delegates

AT this eventful crisis, when the most flagrant outrage upon the dignity and independence of our country,
and a denial of our dearest and most inestimable privileges, threaten to commit our peace with the British nation,
we conceive that sound policy and national justice require, that the sentiments and feelings of the people of the
state of Maryland should be communicated to the executive of the United States, through the medium of their
legislature; we therefore propose, with the concurrence of your honourable body, to appoint a joint committee
of both branches of the legislature to frame an address to the President of the United States, appropriate to
the present occasion, and have nominated Mr. Somervell, Mr. Partridge and Mr. Glenn, to join such gentlemen
as may be appointed by your house for that purpose.

By order, T. ROGERS, clk.

A petition from sundry inhabitants of the fourth election district in Montgomery county, praying an alterati-
on in the place of holding the election, was preferred, read, and referred to Mr. Linthicum, Mr. Carroll, Mr..
Ray, Mr. Darne and Mr. Biggs, to consider and. report thereon.
