From Alexander Hamilton to Richard Harison, 5 April 1793

To Richard Harison

Treasury Department
April 5 1793


I enclose you a copy of a Letter from me to the district Judge of this date1 requiring a revision in the Case of Lemuel Toby and the Ship Lydia.

You will see that I am not at present satisfied of the innocence of the transaction. The Invoice & Bill of Lading ought to be seen before there is time for fabrication.

I request your particular attention to a scrutinous investigation of the transaction.

With great Consideration   I am Sir   Yr Obed Servt
