Special Message

February 08, 1792

Gentlemen of the Senate and of the House of Representatives:

An article of expense having occurred in the Department of Foreign Affairs for which no provision has been made by law, I lay before you a letter from the Secretary of State explaining the same, in order that you may do thereon what you shall find to be right.


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