Bartholomew Dandridge, Jr., to Alexander Hamilton
Decem: 9. 1794.
Bw Dandridge respectfully informs the Secretary of the Treasury that the President does not object to granting Mister Bowen’s request if it can be done without injury to the public service.1
B. Dandridge will thank the Secretary to cause a Warrant to be transmitted to him for two thousand dollars on account of The President’s compensation.2
1. Dandridge may have been referring to Jabez Bowen of Rhode Island, who was attempting to obtain reimbursement for state funds expended to assist refugees from Saint Domingue (see Bowen to Edmund Randolph, 12 May 1794 and 23 April 1795, DNA: RG 59, Miscellaneous Letters).
