I judge it proper to keep you apprised of every thing material which occurs in the department and therefore enclose you copies of two letters from the Secretary at war on which Mr. Coxe has requested that 37,000 dollars may be advanced to the Contractor for rations and 15,000 or 20,000 dollars to the Contractor for cloathing for the year 1795. As there is no special appropriation, it will be...
I have recd. your Letter of Sept. 30th. & have lost no time in causing Notes to be prepared for the remittances directed to be made to Genl. Miller & Mr. Williams, which will go forward tomorrow by Colo. Presley Nevil to whom a reasonable compensation has been promised. I expect to be able to forward ninety thousand Dollars by the same conveyance to Fort Cumberland for the pay of the army. I...
Applications are frequently made respecting accounts which remain dependg in this Office, on which I have already delivered my opinion and made reports while I served in the Office of Auditer of the Treasury.

Loan Office ” for a number of indented Certificates supposed to be then issued in pursuance of the resolutions of Congress of the 2d. of January & 2nd. of July 1779 in favour of a Chairman of a Committee of Accounts in North Carolina.

The plan is to surrender the existing obligations to the Comrs. who in lieu thereof issue triplicate descriptive Certificates to the Creditors—any one being produced at the Treasury will command the new Stock....
Treasury Department, Comptroller’s Office, February 29, 1792. Sends report on memorial of Samuel Fowler.

[ Philadelphia, July 26, 1796. On July 30, 1796, Hamilton wrote to Wolcott and acknowledged “the Receipt of your letter of the 26th.” Letter not found. ]
I have no recollection of Mr. Anthony Singletons application to fund Certificates of Regd. Debt, and unless the Certificates are presented I cannot judge whether there are any valid objections against complying with his request. I well recollect that in the year 1791, it was a standing rule to admit no transfer of any Certificates issued by Mr. Nourse without a power of Attorney. It was found...

You will remember that it has all along been a recd. opinion that the French had a right by Treaty to enjoy an indefinite asylum in our Ports: but that they could not claim the privilidge of selling Prizes in our Ports . The privilidge of an indefinite asylum in was also granted to British Ships of War &...
