Treasury Department Circular
to the Commissioners of Loans

Treasury Department
March 9.1791

Sir

The Comptroller of the Treasury being prevented by sickness from executing the duties of his Office I have found it necessary to instruct Mr. Joseph Hardy his first Clerk, to sign all such papers as are requisite to transfer Stock from one Loan Office to another, and to and from the Books of the Treasury. You will therefore proceed upon warrants signed by me and counter signed by him, as if they were countersigned by the Comptroller himself till further orders.

I am Sir   Your Obedient servant

Alex Hamilton

LS, Mr. Hall P. McCullough, North Bennington, Vermont.
