From Thomas Mifflin1
[Philadelphia, October 10, 1791]
The Register General of Pennsylvania,2 conceiving, that the possession of an accurate list of the State Debt subscribed to the Loan of the United States, would be a considerable improvement to the arrangement of the public accounts in his office has made a request upon the subject, which I beg leave to submit to your consideration; with a view that, if it will not be improper or inconvenient, your acquiescence may be obtained.
I am, with great esteem Sir, Your most obedient sevt.
To Alexander Hamilton Esqr
Secret. of the Ts of the U. S.
