Since mine to you of the 22d. I have reason to believe that the information which gave occasion to that letter was a misapprehension of the party from whom I received it; but whose general accuracy left me no suspicion of such a possibility at the time. I hasten to give this intimation, that no inconveniences may ensue from my first communication. With perfect esteem I have the honor to be  ...
A report has reached this place, through a channel so respectable as to claim notice, that the affairs of the Bank of Providence are in considerable disorder. On this occasion I take the liberty to commit to your care the interests of the United States and to request your aid. It is probably known to all of you that the Bank of Providence has been made a place of deposit for all the public...
In answer to your letter of the 4th instant I cannot but express my regret and disappointment, that you should have considered my letter of the 19th Ultimo as not sufficiently explicit to induce you to receive entries in case of collusive transfer. I have revised my letter, and to me it appears very explicit and very decisive. What more could I do, than give my opinion, that the appearances...
I am to acknowledge the receipt of your letter of the 18th of August last, relative to seven Puncheons of Foreign Spirits entered at the Custom House in Providence by Arnold Rhodes, Master of the Sloop Bacon from Washington in North Carolina. I have therefore to request, that you will concur with the Supervisor of Rhode Island (who has been instructed for that purpose by the Commissioner of...
The Attorney for the District of Massachusetts will prosecute in the case of the Sloop Polly of Sandwich, which, as I learn from your letter of the 18th Ultimo, was licensed at your Office. It is probable he will have occasion for the license bond, which I request you will forward to him upon his application. I am, Sir,   Your Obedt Servant. LS , Rhode Island Historical Society, Providence;...
I enclose you duplicate of my letter of the 19th instant, to which I refer you in answer to yours of the 13th. I shall only add, that it interests the merchants as much as the Public to discountenance such a species of evasion. For could it long succeed, it would render credits for the duties inadmissible. It will be well to let this idea get into circulation among the merchants. I am Sir Your...
I have considered the case which is stated in your letter of the 8th instant concerning Welcome Arnold. If appearances of the kind continue, I am of opinion that the presumption of a design to evade the law will be sufficiently strong to justify an Officer in refusing the credit. If an action should be brought against the Officer for such refusal, means must be taken to examine all the parties...
Treasury Department, September 13, 1792. “I have this day decided upon the case of Thomas Hazard junr. The interest of the United States and of all others in the forfeiture is remitted to him; and he is to pay fifty Dollars to parties, other than the United States, together with costs and charges.…” LS , Rhode Island Historical Society, Providence; copy, RG 56, Letters to Collectors at Small...
I have considered the seventh Section of the Act, “concerning the Duties on Spirits distilled within the United States &c,” and agree with you in the opinion, given in your letter of the 14th instant, that the abatement of two per Cent for leakage is to be made, on securing the Duty at the end of the quarter, from the whole quantity distilled during the preceding three months. The Supervisor...
Treasury Department, August 24, 1792. “I have to reply to your letter of the 24th Ultimo, concerning the Renewal of licenses in certain cases. I incline to the opinion that regularly new licenses cannot be granted (except in the cases in which licenses are required to be surrendered previous to the going on foreign voyages) until the expiration of the term of the preceding ones; even though...
