1845. RESOLUTIONS.

No. 3.

Passed Jan.
19, 1846.

Preamble and Resolutions in relation to the Anacostia
Bridge, to cause the same to be made a free bridge,
&c.

Preamble.

WHEREAS, the Congress of the United States have at
sundry times made appropriations of a large amount of
money for the construction of free bridges across the
Potomac river within the District of Columbia, which
have conferred important advantages upon the citizens
of Virginia, and others, by enabling them to approach

Resolved, That his Excellency the Governor, be re-

and Representatives in Congress, a copy of the aforego-
