In my letter of the 22d of march I communicated my desire, that you would pay weekly into the Boston branch of the Bank of the united States, the monies arising in Your office, which it was my intention to have passed immediately to the credit of the Treasurer of the united States.

To the circumstances already mentioned in my letter of Yesterday it must be ascribed that certain communications of the 27th of August last from the Deputy collector have not received an earlier attention.
