Alexander Hamilton Papers

From Alexander Hamilton to Otho H. Williams, 26 June 1794

To Otho H. Williams

Treasury Department
June 26th 1794


I received with your letter of the 16th of March last1 an estimate of expences for repairing the revenue Cutter which has in the hurry of business hitherto remained unattended to.

If these repairs have not already been done in consequence of my circular letter of the 19th instant they may be done upon the smallest of the two scales proposed.

I have noticed that you have appointed Mr. Richmond2 deputy Collector. It is expected that he will open all official letters3 from this department, though addressed to you as collector.

With great consideration   I am Sir,   Your obedient Servant

A Hamilton

Otho, H, Williams Esquire
Collector Baltimore

LS, Columbia University Libraries.

1Letter not found.

3At this point in the letter H inserted an asterisk, and at the bottom of the page he wrote: “The words ‘Treasury Department’ superscribed will designate such as are of this description.”
