To Jedediah Huntington
Treasury Department Novr. 24th. 1789.
I acknowledge the receipt of your’s of the 11th. instant.1
The privileges allowed to Vessels under twenty Tons appear to me in the same light in which they do to you. I should be obliged by your ideas of the most proper arrangement with regard to that description of Vessels; as the thing is perhaps not without difficulties.
I have no doubt that the Importer must make entry, as well with regard to enumerated as non-enumerated articles.
I am, Sir, Your Obedt. Servt.
Secy of the Treasy
Jedidiah Huntington Esqr.
Collector of the Port of New-London.
