Alexander Hamilton Papers

From Alexander Hamilton to Samuel A. Otis, 31 March 1790

To Samuel A. Otis

Treasury Department
March 31st. 1790


Upon consideration I have thought it best to issue a Warrant in your favour for two thousand three hundred dollars on account of contingent expences of the Senate &c as it would not be convenient to blend the account, with the Salary due you. For this you can receive a Certificate from the President of the Senate and leave it with the Auditor, who will pass the same in the like manner with other accounts.

I am Sir   Your obedt. Servt.

A Hamilton

Samuel A: Otis Esquire
Secy of the Senate

LS, RG 46, First Congress, 1789–1791, Letters Relating to Fiscal Matters, National Archives.
