MESSAGE

II.310.1

MESSAGE (IN U. S. HISTORY), a written communication to congress by the president. Regular messages are sent at the opening of each session of congress; special messages, whenever an occasion for them arises. During the administrations of Washington and John Adams the messages were delivered orally by the president to the two houses assembled together; since that time they have been delivered in writing, through the president's private secretary, and then printed by order of congress for general distribution. (See EXECUTIVE.)

A. J.
