Treasury Department 29th April 1806
I have the honor to enclose copies of a letter from the President of the Bank of the United States & of certain resolutions of that institution respecting the exportation of American Dollars. I do not perceive that any thing more can be done than to instruct the Director of the Mint to confine himself as much as practicable to the coining of half dollars in preferance to Dollars.
I have the honor to be with the highest respect Sir Your obedt. Sert
