Special Message

April 21, 1792

Gentlemen of the Senate and of the House of Representatives:

I lay before you the copy of a letter which I have received from the judges of the circuit court of the United States held for the Pennsylvania district relatively to 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
