of land to officers who served in the war with Mexico. Whereas, In the opinion of this Legislature, the pay and commutations for rations of the officers of the army of the United States, under the rank of brigadier general, who served in the late war with Mexico, was not sufficient to defray their necessary expenses while in Mexico, and afford them a reasonable compensation for their services, though the same pay and commutation would be amply sufficient while the army was in the United States;

Therefore, resolved, by the Senate and House of Representatives of the State of Michigan, That our Senators and Representatives in Congress be requested to use all honorable means to procure the passage by Congress of a law making a donation of the public lands or of money to all the officers under the rank of brigadier general who served in the war with Mexico, equal in amount to double rations during the time of their extraordinary expenses.

Resolved, That the Governor be and he is hereby requested to transmit a copy of these resolutions to each of our Senators and Representatives in Congress.
