Treasury Department February 26th
I have to request that you will be pleased to advance to The Honorable Jonathan Trumbull Esqr. the sum of Thirty Thousand Dollars; on Account of the compensations due to the Members of the House of Representatives of the United States.
As I have been informed, that the Bill making appropriations for the present year has passed both Houses of Congress,1 I hope to have it in my power very shortly to replace this sum, as well as, the Monies which have been hitherto advanced by you for the Public service, in compliance with my several requisitions for that purpose.
I am with great Consideration Gentlemen Your Most Obedient Servant
