THE COMMITTEE, TO WHOM WAS RECOMMITTED "THE REPORT ON THE DELIVERANCE OF CITIZENS LIABLE TO BE SOLD AS SLAVES, WITH INSTRUCTIONS TO REPORT THE RESOLVES APPENDED TO THE REPORT OF THE MINORITY, OR OTHERS CONTAINING THE SAME PRINCIPLES," HAVE DIRECTED ME TO REPORT THE ACCOMPANYING RESOLVES. CHARLES A. ANDREW, CHAIRMAN.
