New York Assembly. Report on the
Petition of Henry Ludenton1
New York, April 14, 1787. In his petition, Ludenton asserted that “certain depreciation certificates” had been stolen from him and, after passing through several hands, used for the purchase of a forfeited estate. Ludenton then asked that these certificates be returned. Hamilton, as chairman of a committee, recommended “as an act of generosity in the State,” that the treasurer be instructed to return the certificates.
