To Jeremiah Olney1
Treasury Department Sept 24th 1792
I enclose you duplicate of my letter of the 19th instant, to which I refer you in answer to yours of the 13th.
I shall only add, that it interests the merchants as much as the Public to discountenance such a species of evasion. For could it long succeed, it would render credits for the duties inadmissible. It will be well to let this idea get into circulation among the merchants.
I am Sir Your obedt Servt
