1833-02-25, Governor's message on letters from other states on nullification, etc.
House No. 45 On February 25, 1833, Governor Lincoln submitted letters he had received from other Governors for the Legislature's information.
Delaware directed its Congressional members to encourage the federal government to establish uniform rules for militias. Delaware also rejected South
Carolina's nullification ordinance and said the 5th Article of the Constitution provided the best way to consider amendments. New Jersey also rejected
South Carolina's nullification ordinance and encouraged that state to use the existing means of amending the Constitution. Virginia likewise rejected
South Carolina's approach and pleaded with that state to keep the peace. (Digitized from a microfilm copy of title originally held by the
Massachusetts State Library).
