Philadelphia, June 30, 1794. Asks “whether domestic or foreign sail Cloth shall be used for our frigates.” Copy, Connecticut Historical Society, Hartford. This letter is essentially the same as H to Benjamin Lincoln, June 28, 1794 .
I have directed the Treasurer to remit you drafts on the Office of Discount & Deposit at New York for 3618 Dollars & 6 Cents being the amount of the two accounts inclosed in your letter of the 27th of May. But I leave it with you to settle the rate of Exchange with Messrs. Franklin Robinson & Co. according to what you deem the mercantile usage in such cases and I shall be satisfied with...
I take it for granted that mine of the 28 or 29th of which I did not keep a copy will have led you to conclude an arrangement for the vessel preferred by Mr Jay. Lest that letter should by any accident have miscarried (as you appear not to have received it on the 30th when the post came away) I repeat what it contained—It authorised you, according to Mr Jay’s choice, to agree for the vessel;...

A Vessell is wanted to convey Mr Jay to Great Britain. It is a question whether on acct of our Situation with the Algerines it may not be adviseable to procure a foreign Vessell. Particular reasons induce me to trouble you on this subject and to ask you to have a careful inquiry made what Vessells there are in the Port of New York of any Nation and which are at liberty to be obtainable for...
I thank you much for your friendly & expeditious attention to my late requests. All the papers you have sent will answer my ideas except the account of Amsterdam Bills. It is essential I should exhibit to the Committee the monies actually in deposit in each Bank from that source at the end of each quarter and not then passed to the account of the Treasurer. The statement sent me exhibits sums...

H to Thomas Pinckney, November 5, 1792 .
I will thank you to forward me, as soon as convenient, copies of all the letters you have received from me, respecting the purchase of public Debt. In the hurry of dispatching some of them, no copy was kept. And some incidents of late require, that I should carefully review the ground. I regretted to have been obliged to draw lately a portion of my intended deposits from your Bank; but I hope...
The painful cause of your short silence was easily understood and by me most sincerely sympathized in. I shall always take part in the prosperous or adverse events which attend you. I thank you for the trouble you have so kindly taken respecting my letter and for your obliging offer of writing to the Governor of the Island. I hope the measures I have already taken will answer the end. If not I...
Your letter, mentioning certain particulars respecting the two banks, has been received, and will be duly attended to. I trust, however, that certain appearances have in no degree proceeded from any unkind disposition. The solution, I believe, is to be found in the necessity of sending here a considerable sum in specie. Large payments into the Bank of North America on account of the State of...
I received your obliging letter by the Post of day and thank you for the first instance of your friendly attention, which it announces. Mr. Pollock certainly has done the utmost that Mr. Greene could have asked and as much as his situation can require, if it is remediable at all. I have directed the Collector of New York to divide his deposits between your institution & the Branch until he...
I find on examination that I have drawn out of the Bank of New York more money than I intended. It was my intention to keep there about 100 000 Dollars but I will contrive ere long to replace; and in the mean time I wish you to understand that if any ballance in favour of the Branch should at any time press you unduly I will upon notice come to your aid as far as my deposits there will permit....

The Society for establishing useful manufactures, at their last meeting, resolved to borrow a sum of 5000 Dollars upon a pledge of deferred Stock. Mr. Walker is impowered to negotiate the loan and I expect application will be made to the Bank of New York for it. I have a strong wish that the Directors of that Bank may be disposed to give facilities to this institution upon terms of perfect...

I received your letter of the 7th instant, covering an account of Stock purchased by you for the United States. I observe that you have exceeded the sum which was limitted by me to the amount of one thousand and ninety eight Dollars, eighty nine Cents. But so small a difference is not very material, and I am willing that the whole should remain on account of the United States. In order to a...

I have your letters of the 10th & 11th and more to my distress than surprise I learn by other letters a confirmation of what you apprehended namely Mr. Macombs failure. This misfortune has I fear a long tail to it. The inclosed you will perceive gives you additional latitude. The terms as heretofore, for six ⅌ Cents 20/ three per Cents 12/ & deferred 12/6. You must judge of the best mode &...
The post of this day brought me a letter from you. I am pained, beyond expression, at the picture you and others give me of the situation of my fellow Citizens—especially as an ignorance of the extent of the disorder renders it impossible to judge whether any adequate remedy can be applied. You may apply another 50 000 Dollars to purchases at such time as you judge it can be rendered most...

If six per Cents should sink below par, you may purchase on account of the United States at par to the extent of Fifty thousand Dollars. You will not however declare on whose account you act, because tho there is, as to a purchase on that principle, no difference of opinion among the Trustees, the thing is not formally aranged and this is Sunday. It will be very probably conjectured that you...
