President Thomas Collins to James Booth (December 22, 1787)

Yours of the 17th instant I received with its enclosures, with respect to the resolution, a similar one I received of the clerk of the Council some time past.
I have enclosed the proceedings of the Privy Council at Dover on the 6th day of this instant and request you to enter the same amongst the other proceedings of Council, and make out commissions in conformity thereto, and bring them with you when you attend the Assembly next month.
I have enclosed a certified copy of the ratification of the Federal Constitution, by our state Convention who have by their resolution requested the President to certify the same under the Seal of the State and transmit it to Congress. You are therefore requested to affix the Seal aforesaid and enclose the ratification, also the enclosed letter the Charles Thomson, Esquire under a cover, sealed and addressed by you, to the Secretary of Congress, and hand the same to Mr. Mitchell who will attend the delivery thereof, as he is on his way to Congress.1 N. B. Mr. Mitchell waits on you for the commissions to the delegates of this state, to the Congress of the United States.
