Mr. Armstrong presented a petition of James Reilly, executor of James Purvis, deceased, praying that the benefits of the act of the 5th July, 1832, "to provide for liquidating and paying certain claims of the State of Virginia," may be extended to the estate of the said Purvis; which petition was referred to the committee appointed on the memorial of the Rhode Island brigade of the revolutionary army.
