1585. CONGRESS, Salaries of Members.—

Our [financial] distresses ask notice
[by the Virginia Legislature]. I had been
from home four months, and had expended
$1200 before I received one farthing. By the
last post we received about seven weeks' allowance.
In the meantime, some of us had
had the mortification to have our horses
turned out of the livery stable for want of
money. There is really no standing this.
The supply gives us no relief because it was
mortgaged. We are trying to get something
more effectual from the treasury, having sent
on express to inform them of our predicament.—
To James Madison. Ford ed., iii, 404.
(A. Feb. 1784)
