New York, April 29, 1790. Requests “two hundred and fifty dollars for the contingent expences of the Office of Secretary of State.” LC , Papers of the Continental Congress, National Archives.
Mr. Jefferson presents his compliments to the Secretary of the Treasury, and asks his perusal of the inclosed rough draught of a report on the subject of measures, weights & coins, in hopes that the Secretary of the Treasury may be able to accomodate his plan of a mint to the very small alteration of the money unit proposed in this report. As soon as the Secretary of the Treasury shall have...
I have the honor to enclose you an estimate of the probable expences of the Department of State for one year from the 1st. day of April last past, not including the diplomatic establishment abroad, for which there is a Bill before Congress to make a special appropriation. I have given directions that a list shall always be sent to your office of all Commissions to be made out for persons...
You were so kind as to say you would write to our bankers in Holland to answer my draught for a part of the balance due me for salary etc. I suppose in fact it will be necessary to clear their minds on the subject, for tho’ they know that the diplomatic expences in Europe were paid on the funds in their hands, yet as I am here they will naturally expect your instructions should accompany my...

Th: Jefferson presents his respectful compliments to the Secretary of the treasury, and his condolences on the accident of the other evening, which he hopes has produced no serious loss. He incloses to the Secretary of the Treasury a report of a committee of the National assembly of France, on the subject of Billon, containing more particular information as to that species of coin than he had...
I inclose you copies of the printed papers you desired: also a letter I recieved last night. This paper I will thank you to return by the bearer when you shall have perused it, as it is yet to be translated & communicated to the President. It is evident that this matter will become serious, & tho’ I am pointedly against admitting the French construction of the Treaty, yet I think it essential...
I return you the report on the mint which I have read over with a great deal of satisfaction. I concur with you in thinking that the mint must stand on both metals, that the alloy should be the same in both, also in the proportion you establish between the value of the two metals. As to the question on whom the expense of coinage is to fall, I have been so little able to make up an opinion...
