The letters to Mr. Hammond & Mr. Pinckney appear to me proper, according to the facts stated in them. The object of that to Mr. Genet also appears to me desireable; but I am not wholly without scruple as to the proposition going from the UStates. ALS , Thomas Jefferson Papers, Library of Congress. For background to this letter, see Jefferson to H and Henry Knox, June 25, 1793 . H’s reply was...
The Comptroller of the Treasury has reported to me that “On examining the subsisting contracts between the United States and the Government of France and the Farmers General and a comparison thereof with the foreign accounts and documents transmitted to the Treasury the following facts appear. That, previous to the Treaty of February 1778, the sum of Three millions of livres had been advanced...
New York, 28 Aug. 1790 . Requests two copies of “An Act making provision for the debt of the United States” and of “An Act making provision for the reduction of the public debt,” together with two copies of his commission as secretary of the treasury, all “certified and exemplified under the Great Seal.” A vessel is expected to sail for Amsterdam in the evening by which he wishes to send some...
I have the honor to enclose you copies of certain communications which have been made to me, respecting the detention of the Registers of vessels of the United States in some of the Islands of his Christian Majesty, in order that such measures may be taken as shall appear adviseable towards preventing in future a practice, which has a tendency either to interfere with the policy of our Laws,...
Mr. Hamilton presents his Compliments to Mr. Jefferson. He may have heard that the Treasurer was in the Market last night and may be at a loss concerning his authority. The ground of the operation is an Act of the Board of the 15th of August last, appropriating a sum between three and four hundred thousand Dollars, which Mr. Hamilton considers as any sum short of 400,000 Dollars; leaving still...
Mr. Hamilton presents his Compliments to the Secretary of State—requests to be informed, if it will be convenient to him to meet the Secretary at War and Mr. H. to day at twelve oClock. If it will, they will be at that hour at Mr. Jefferson’s office. RC ( DLC ); partially dated; endorsed by TJ as received 5 July 1793 and so recorded in SJL .
The Secretary of the Treasury presents his Compliments to the Secretary of State. He has signed the Counterpart; but for the present leaves in the words as a privateer to consider jointly of some substitute the kind of vessel not being wholly indifferent & there being a doubt whether the general words would be descriptive enough. The letter supposed to have been received from the Commissioner...
Philadelphia, May [ 12 ] 1793 . Transmits “the Copy of a letter of the 23d of April last from the Collector of the District of Nantucket to the Register of the Treasury” and “Copies of the declarations on the Registers, therein referred to.” LS , Thomas Jefferson Papers, Library of Congress. Although this letter is dated May 8, the enclosures were not submitted to H by Joseph Nourse until May...
Mr. Hamilton presents his Compliments to Mr. Jefferson. He has perused with much satisfaction the draft of his report on the subject of weights and measures. There is no view which Mr. H has yet taken of the matter which stands opposed to the alteration of the money-unit as at present contemplated by the regulations of Congress either in the way suggested in the report or in that mentioned in...
It has occurred to me that it would be productive of very useful information if some Officer of the United States in each foreign Country, where there is one, were instructed to transmit, occasionally, a state of the coins of the Country specifying their respective standards weights, and values, and, periodically, a state of the market prices of gold and silver in coin and bullion, and of the...
