According to advices received from Amsterdam dated August 30th. 1792, I have good ground to conclude that there is a sum in the hands of our Bankers there, not less than 1,250.000 florins subject to my order; but though there is a moral certainty of this being the case, there are circumstances which admit a bare possibility of the contrary. It is proper to apprise you of this, as a preliminary...

The Government has a considerable payment to make at Amsterdam in June next.

I understand there is at present an unusual press for money, proceeding from certain mercantile speculations. As an accomodation in regard to notes in which the Government is interested may, in this state of things, be of peculiar convenience to the persons concerned, I shall have no objection if the bank will renew such notes for thirty days in all cases where it can be done with perfect...
