Special Message

April 16, 1792

Gentlemen of the Senate and of the House of Representatives:

I lay before you a copy of a letter from the judges of the circuit court of the United States held for the New York district, and of their opinion and agreement respecting the "Act to provide for the settlement of the claims of widows and orphans barred by the limitations heretofore established, and to regulate the claims to invalid pensions."


George Washington, Special Message Online by Gerhard Peters and John T. Woolley, The American Presidency Project
