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...
Colonel Humphreys will be entitled to draw from the Treasury of the United States from about this date till further order, at the rate of two thousand two hundred and fifty dollars, a year, and in addition to this sum for postage of letters, the amount of which cannot be known beforehand, and will not be considerable. This is to be charged to the fund of the foreign department. I must ask the...

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...

Your favour of the 8th. inst. could only be recieved on my return here, and I have this morning been considering of it’s contents. I think with you that it will be interesting to recieve from different countries the details it enumerates. Some of these I am already in a regular course of recieving. Others when once well executed, will scarcely need to be repeated. As to these I already possess...
Th: Jefferson presents his respectful compliments to the Secretary of the Treasury and incloses him the proposed letter to the Minister of France, in which however he shall be glad to make any modifications of expression to accomodate it more perfectly to the ideas of the Secretary of the Treasury.

As this will be nearly exhausted by this time, and there will be large calls immediately by Mr. Morris, Mr. Pinkney & mr...
It is perfectly equal to me that the 1233⅓ dollars mentioned in your letter of yesterday, be taken out of the 40,000 Dollars now desired, or not. You will observe that the two sums of 40,000 D. each are for the interval between July 1. 1790. & July 1. 1792. and that the act is to continue, even if not renewed, till the end of the next session of Congress, probably the beginning of March 1793....
The last grant of money for defraying the contingent and other expences of the Department of State having been laid out, and the account thereof and vouchers presented at the Auditor’s office for settlement and settled, I have to request the favour of your directing a warrant for the sum of two hundred and fifty dollars to be issued for the payment of such expences as may arise in future.

I have the honor to inclose you the answer of the Minister of France to the letter I wrote him on the subject of the complaint of the Collector of Bermuda hundred against the French Consul at Norfolk, whereby you will see that he undertakes to have the latter set right. I have not thought it necessary to reply to his observation that “Le Consul de Norfolk est sans doute obligé de maintenir les...
By an act of Congress passed on the last day of their session it was made the duty of the Secretary of state to have seals prepared for the courts of the two Western governments, but nothing particular was said as to the resource for making payment for them. I have therefore to ask the favor of information from you whether there are any funds which you should think it justifiable to apply to...

In pursuance of powers which mr Short had confided to me, and urged by the circumstances of the moment, I thought it expedient to desire on the 19th. of April last that no transfer might be permitted of any stock standing in his own name or in the name of any other for his use. The circumstances no longer existing which dictated that caution I desire that the caveat may be considered as...
