House. Comm. on State Naturalization Laws. Resolves on naturalization on free foreigners of color, 1841
House No. 17 In February, an unnamed committee responded to a petition asking the Legislature to urge Congress to allow free colored foreigners
to become citizens of the United States with Resolves: Resolved: There was no reason why a free colored foreigner should not have the same privileges
as a white foreigner. Resolved: Congress should change the law so a free colored foreigner would be naturalized under the same conditions as any
foreigner. Resolved: The Governor would forward these resolves to the state's Congressional delegation to lay the same before the Congress. (Digitized
