I acknowledge the receipt of your’s of the 11th. instant. The privileges allowed to Vessels under twenty Tons appear to me in the same light in which they do to you. I should be obliged by your ideas of the most proper arrangement with regard to that description of Vessels; as the thing is perhaps not without difficulties. I have no doubt that the Importer must make entry, as well with regard...
From some inadvertence your letter, relative to vessels which put into the district of Newport, was placed among the answered letters, and has therefore lain without due attention. It is the duty of the Collectors of the several districts to pay attention to all vessels arriving within the same by whatever cause they may be led thither. If forty eight hours are likely to elapse after the...

I perceive by your Letter of the 4th instant that I misapprehended you in respect to the question referred to in Your Letter of the 26th of September. I thought it related to the going from one port to another to deliver the inward Cargo which certainly cannot be done without previously paying or securing the Duties at the first port. But there is clearly no color for the idea that foreign...

I have received your letter of the 3d. instant together with the contract for supplying the light house therein enclosed.

It is certainly incumbent upon every master of a vessel to make report to the Collector of any district, into which he may go for whatever cause, within twenty four hours, and (if the vessel should remain so long in the district) to make an entry.

I have considered the case you State in your letter of the 22nd July respecting the repairs of a french vessel.

I do not think, it will be necessary to require a refund from the officers of the revenue cutter in consequence of the payments to them at eleven cents per ration, as mentioned in your letter of the 10th. October. It is very much my wish that the article of rum may be as sparingly supplied as possible. Country rum at half a jill per man per day is, as I understand, as large an allowance as is...
