The undersigned, a portion of the Committee appointed by the
Legislature to present and enforce its Resolutions to Presidents
Lincoln and Davis, beg leave to reportó

if failing in that, then a cessation of hostilities on the part of the
armies of the Federal and Confederated troops, until Congress
