Ordered

lency the Governor, and by him transmitted to the Delegates 
of this State in the Congress of the United States to be b}^ them 
presented to the President of the United States. 
A To the President of the United States 

Sir, 

AVe the people of the State of South Carolina now met, & 
sitting in Convention, beg leave to address You, & to embrace this 
first opportunity, which has been afforded us, of congratulating 
You on your election to the high, and important station of 

President of the United States Such, Sir, has been the 

impression made upon the publick mind by a clue sense of your 
eminent service, and such the affection of a Nation, whose dearest 
rights you have defended, that one wish pervaded the whole 
Continent of placing you at the head of the Federal Republick, 
and of enjoying under your protection, as our first Magistrate, 
the blessings of that free government, for the attainment of 
which we are so much indebted to your exertions as our General — 

The promises of 3'our earlier life, Sir, had prepared your fel- 
low citizens for your acceptance of the military command in 
the year 1775, when dangers and difficulties surrounded on all 
sides, and the prospect was dark, and gloomy, but the}^ must 
ever remember with gratitude & admiration the wisdom and 
energy of that system, which could induce Men accustomed to 
the most perfect equality to submit to the rigorous duties of a 
camp, and thus convert the tumultuary array of an undisci- 
plined yeomanry into a permanent force capable of making 
head against the Veteran army of our Enemies: with similar 
sentiments do they call to mind the efforts of that heroick forti- 
tude which despaired not in worst of times, but rose superior to 
every misfortune, infusing new" spirt into the bosoms of an 
unfortunate army, and animating them by the force of example 
to undergo the serverest toil with alacrity, and to endure with 
perserverance the most accumulated distress — 



28 

It was the will of an all- wise Providence that the threat object 
we were contending for, should not be attained without some 
difficulty, and that we should be taught to observe, and to 
value the virtues, which spring up in adversit}^; but the time 
of our severe trial was at length to terminate, the cloud which 
had hover'd over us so long was at length dispelled, and the 
sun of American Glory appear'd in it's full splendour: to have 
borne this change of fortune with equanimity, to have employed 
the last hours of command in reconciling our gallant soldiers 
to a disappointment which their long sufferings during the war 
had but ill prepared them for, and having checked the rage 
of civil discord in it's enfancy, to have resigned all power, and 
cheerfully descended into the walks of private life, are circum- 
stances that must forever illumine the page of Historj', and 
which, as they can never be effaced from our remembrance, so 
we trust they will be deeply engraven upon the minds of our 
Posterity: — to transmit to that Posterity in it's native purity 
the spirit of a free constitution is the hope which animates us 
all, we hope also, that they will learn from us to cherish every 
grateful sentiment towards You, Sir, and that they will be 
proud, as we are, to participate individually in the honour which 
America may so justly claim to herself, of having produced a 
citizen whose love of glory was devoid of ambition, whose view 
embraced no objects but the freedom and the happiness of his 
Countrymen, whose integrity was equal to their most unbounded 
confidence, and who, combining the prudence of retreat, with 
all the active valour of attack, was at once the shield and the 
sword of his native country — 

The tranquillity of retirement after the dangers of war and 
the fatigues of publick life, is one of those rewards which ex- 
alted merit seems ever entitled to, but which your tellow citizens 
were constrain'd to deny you ; Independency had been established, 
but the arduous task of internal Legislation still remained, and 
the United States were yet to establish upon the firmest Basis 
that station amongst the nations of the earth which they had 
of Kight assumed; called upon for this sacred purpose, You 
have listened. Sir, to the voice of your country, you have given 
a further proof of 3^our never failing attachment to her interests, 
and we can only hope, in the warmest wishes which we form 
for the good of the publick weal, that your administration in 



29 

the office of President of tlie United States may be as pros- 
perous as your acceptance of it lias been honorable and Patriotick. 
We will not, Sir, by thus giving way to the effusions of our 
hearts any longer intrude upon that time which is devoted to 
the general good, but concluded wdth offering up our prayers 
to the great Father of the Universe, that he may be pleased to 
shed his influence over all your Councils, and that having saved 
your country, and given an aweful lesson to all mankind, you 
may finally in the fullness of your years, close the long glories 
of an illustrious life — not only with the consciousness of having 
deserved, but with the comfort, and satisfaction of having re- 
ceived every proof of respect, and esteem from the heartfelt 
gratitude of your fellow citizens — 

On Motion 

Resolved that the Legislature, shall in their first Session under 
this Constitution regulate and establish by Laws all the Fees of
