ment would readily entertain any proposition from the Government of the United States tending to a peaceful solution of the pending difficulties the recent attempts of this Government to enter into negotiations with that of the United States were attended with results which forbid any renewal of proposals from it to that Government. If any further assurance of the desire of this Government for peace were necessary, it would be sufficient to observe that, being formed of a confederation of sovereign States, each acting and deciding for itself, the right of every other sovereign State to the same self-action and self-government is necessarily acknowledged. Hence conquests of other States are wholly inconsistent with the fundamental principles, and subversive of the very origination of this Government. Its policy cannot but be peace — peace with all nations and people. Very respectfully, Jeff. Davis. Messrs. McLaig, Yellott and Harding, Committee of Maryland Legislature.
