Minister Plenipotentiary of the United States, at the court of London.
Office for Foreign Affairs, 2
I have the honour of transmitting to you herewith enclosed a certified copy of an act of Congress of the 21st instant, instructing you to communicate to Mr. St. Saphorin the high sense the United States, in Congress assembled, entertain of the liberal decision made by his Danish majesty, on the question proposed to his minister by you, respecting the ordination of American candidates for holy orders in the Episcopal church, commonly called the Church of England.
Congress has been pleased to order me to transmit copies of your letter, and the other papers on this subject, to the executives of the different States ; and I am persuaded they will receive with pleasure this mark of your attention, and of his Danish majesty's friendly disposition.
I have the honour to be, with great respect and esteem,
Dear sir, Your most obedient and very humble servant,
- New York
