Sir,

We have the honor to transmit an abstract of claims to lands in West Florida marked I. Founded on habitation and cultivation between 22nd February 1819 and the 17th July 1821, reported to Congress in obedience to an act entitled "an act granting donations to certain actual settlers in the Territory of Florida". It has been deemed expedient to make this report, at an early period, as the act may require amendments and this class of claims is subject to future legislation.

We have the honour to be
with high consideration of respect
Your obedient Servants
Sam R. Overton
Jos. M. White
Commissioners

To the Speaker of the House
of Representatives . . . . . .
