It was my wish to have forwarded to you sooner, the enclosed paper, No. 6, by way of answer to the queries I had the honour to receive from you, the 26th of last month, but I could not revise the facts with sufficient care, till this time. You will observe, I have pursued a mode different from that which the form of the queries pointed out, thinking that “ a present state of the navigation of...
A few days ago I forwarded to you, per post, a “state of our navigation,” which I presume you have received. I have the honour to transmit you in this inclosure some notes upon two subjects, one of them of great importance, that may be useful when arranging our affairs with France and Spain. The rough draughts of these papers were made a few weeks before I received your letter, and I then...
I observe that your report upon the public debt contains some intimations of an intention of establishing a national Bank, and I learn from other gentlemen at New York that something of the kind is proposed.

It has really become necessary for the Government has been exceedingly depreciated by it even here. Many who consider it as a great Object, still think it not worth the expence of time,...
I am now at my father’s on my way to Jersey to spend a day or two with my two eldest Children before I finish the time proposed for my Absence. The public Creditors had a small meeting last Night, and appointed a new standing Committee. They appeared moderate & prudent, but solicitous for a good funding System. They did not attempt any business or resolutions, but left every thing in the...
I send you two books & five papers found in the files relative to Mint & coinage —also the weights of the principal coins of the Nations you mentioned taken from the Bank information. Tomorrow afternoon the Assays are to be made. I have not yet got the copper cost & charges. I find the old dollar (the best) in Sir I. N.s tables, which is 17.12 gr. valued at 4/6 would make the Dutch Ducatoon of...
You will find enclosed a very rough copy of Leslies improvement of the proposition of Hatton and Whitehurst —for an invariable Standard of length, capacity & weight. This is his original corrected &ca. by me of wch. Mr Jefferson has the fair copy. Genl. S. will be able to make it out. The printed roll contains a plan of state finance proposed by Mr. R Morris, which having relation to the Bank...
The account of the Chinese trade is in many respects similar to information and conformable to experience I have had. I do not observe any thing contrary to what I have heard from authority. The accot. of the East India trade is minute so far as it goes, and gives some useful information. The increase of the consumption of the finer kinds of Teas deserves notice. The quantity of Specie (at 2...
