To Otho H. Williams

Treasury Department 8th. feby 1790.


I inclose you the extract of a letter from the Collector of the District of Chester.1

As I recollect nothing which authorises the practice he speaks of, I conclude there must be some misapprehension; but it is proper I should communicate the matter to you, and understand from you, what can have given rise to the representation.

I remain, Sir,   Your obedt. Servt.

A Hamilton

Otho H. Williams Esqr.
Collector for the port of Baltimore
