9101. WESTERN TERRITORY, Inhabitants.—[continued].

In availing our western
brethren of those circumstances which occur
for promoting their interests, we only perform
that duty which we owe to every portion of our
Union, under circumstances equally favorable;
and, impressed with the inconveniences to
which the citizens of Tennessee are subjected
by a want of contiguity in the portions composing
their State, I shall be ready to do for
their relief, whatever the general Legislature
may authorize, and justice to our neighbors
