Treasury Department Circular
to the Commissioners of Loans

Treasury Department
September 27th. 1792


The Comptroller of the Treasury1 being absent, I have found it necessary to avoid an interruption of the public business, to direct Mr Henry Kuhl his principal Clerk to countersign the warrants of transfer until his return; you will therefore regard his signature (a specimen of which is here enclosed) as authentic and enter the warrants thus countersigned on your Books as in the other case. The Comptroller on his return will announce it to you which will terminate the object of this instruction.

I am Sir, with consideration   Your obedt Servant

Alexander Hamilton

LS, to Thomas Smith, from the original in the New York State Library, Albany; LS, dated September 29, 1792, The Huntington Library, San Marino, California.
