JOINT RESOLUTIONS

Assented to by the General Assembly of Maryland, at a Session
begun on the 2nd day of January, 1867, and ended
on the 23rd day of March, 1867.

No 1.

Resolved by the General Assembly of Maryland,
That in their judgment the policy heretofore
announced, and up to this time consistently main-
tained by the President of the United States upon
the question of the right of the excluded Southern
States to their Constitutional representation in
Congress, is just, wise and statesmanlike, and is
the only practicable mode by which the Union, as
created and recognized by the Constitution, can be
restored.
Resolved, That the General Assembly recog-
nizes in the action of His Excellency, Thomas
Swann, in support of this policy of the President
of the United States, and in the just and liberal
execution by him of the existing Registry Law of
this State, a concurrence with the sentiments of a
great majority of the people of this State, and a
proper recognition of their inalienable right to
participate in its government by the exercise of
the elective franchise,

Assented to
Jan. 14,1867.
