To Oliver Wolcott, Junior
[New York, September 13, 1789]
It is with pleasure I am able to inform you that you have been appointed Auditor in the Department of the Treasury. The salary of this office is 1500 Dollars. Your friends having expressed a doubt of your acceptance, I cannot forbear saying, that I shall be happy to find the doubt has been ill founded; as from the character I have received of you, I am persuaded you will be an acquisition to the department.
I need scarcely add that your presence here as soon as possible is essential to the progress of business.
I am Sir Your obedient servant
Secretary of the Treasury.
Oliver Wolcott Esqr
