Providence, July 10, 1793. “I have recd. your Letter of the 25th of June.

The Sloop Abigail of this Port, burthen 46 ⁶³⁄₉₅ Tons, Michael Anthony Master, arrived here on the 24th instant, having a Register, and a License which expired on the 5th Day of the present Month: he cleared his Vessel at New-York on the 20th Instant; and appears to have committed a breach of the 6th Section of the new Coasting Law; but as that Section makes a distinction between registered ,...
I have recd. your circular Letter of the 14th instant, covering Four blank Sea Letters; together with Two more from the Comptroller’s Office: more of which will be speedily wanted.

Agreeably to the information contained in my Letter of the 15th Instant, I have attended the Superior Court which met at East Greenwich for the County of Kent on the 22nd. Instant, and am sorry to acquaint you that the Causes of Messrs.

Providence, April 22, 1793. “As it may, in some measure, affect arrangements made at the Treasury, on the probable amount of the Revenue for twelve or Eighteen Months hence, I take leave to inform you, that the difficulty of paying Duties, owing to the scarcity of Specie, has induced the Owners of Two or Three Ships, expected here this Season from the East Indies, to forward Orders to such...
By the last Post I acknowledged the receipt of your confidential, and very Friendly Letter of the 2nd Instant, and I embrace the first leisure moment to express my Gratitude, and return my sincere Thanks for the kindness of the motives which prompted you to write it. Your flattering approbation of my official Conduct in general, and the intimation you have been pleased to give of the great...
I have been honored with your Letter of 2nd. Instant on the Subject of Exportation permits; from the Tenor of which it appears, that your construction of the law is similar to mine; and that the want of more full information has led you to conceive my practice to be erroneous. To form, therefore, a right judgement of the Case, it is Necessary you should know, that for lading of Merchandize...
