Alexander Hamilton Papers

To Alexander Hamilton from Nathaniel Appleton, 26 January 1791

From Nathaniel Appleton

United States Loan Office
Boston 26 Jany. 1791


Your circular favour of 11 instant1 is recd. I don’t remember to have ever seen any Bills of the Old Emissions dated 2d July 1777; the person to whom I intrust counting the paper money thinks he never admitted a Bill of that date, as I have proof Sheets of evry denomination. This serves to inclose a second receipt of 12th. instant. & a first Receipt 22d. instant for certificate Recd. from the Register by which I have a full supply at present. I have never issued a Certift. for Depositts nor to a non subscriber; there is so general a disposition in the Holders of public paper to comply with the proposed Loan that I hope not to be obliged to issue either of them. I have not yet been able, with my utmost exertion to compleat the return for the month of November but I am in hopes to forward it by next Post. The Transfers in the Office are very numerous which ingrosses much of my time. I stated about 700 accounts besides Transfers & those arising from subscription in State Notes.

With great respect I have the honor to be   Sr Your hum Sert
