Robert Carter to George Mason (October 15, 1785)

Nomony Hall October 15th 1785
SIR
Your favour inclosing a Copy of a Remonstrance and memorial against a bill for Establishing a Provision for Teachers of the Christian Religion was put into my hands this day.
The Violence offered therein to the Declaration of Rights and the presumptions Aid intended to Christ's Visible Church, below, were very alarming—and in the month of last June I joined Some persons in the four lower Counties in this Neck in Offering to the People, there, a Petition addressed to the General Assembly, noting therein Some Reasons against the Bill and praying that it might be rejected.
I fully intend to present to the people To-morrow the Remonstrance & Memorial— I am, Sir, your Hum: Servant
ROBERT CARTER
