The original of your letter of the 9th. of April never came to hand. The copy in that of the 9th. of June arrived here while I was on a circuit, so that I did not receive it till a few days ago. It is the practice on the admission of honorary members to present them with diplomas. But there are no blanks in my possession and very few in that of the officers of the Society of this state. These,...
As my eldest son Philip , who lately graduated, will pass through Providence on his way to Boston, I give him this line barely to introduce him to you; since the time I have prescribed for his return will not permit the stay of more than a day at Providence. Yrs. with true regard ALS , Rhode Island Historical Society, Providence. Olney was collector of customs at Providence. Philip Hamilton...
Treasury Department, January 22, 1795. Encloses “the Copy of a letter from the Attorney General to me on the Subject of the Suits brought against you by Arnold & Dexter … also … the draughts of two Assignments to be signed by yourself and immediately returned to this Office.” LS , Rhode Island Historical Society, Providence; LC , RG 56, Letters to the Collector at Providence, June 17,...
I have to request, that you will retain Sufficient funds in your hands to discharge the Allowances to fishing Vessels, which will become due in your District on the 31st of the ensuing Month. You will therefore pay these allowances agreeably to the instructions heretofore given for that purpose. I request however, that you will immediately furnish me with an estimate of the sum, which will be...
Treasury Department, September 9, 1794. “In answer to your favour of the 11th. of August last on the subject of the Suits brought against you by Arnold & Dexter, I shall just observe, that if an application to the General Assembly for a new Trial, can be effected in time, without precluding the right of ultimately resorting to the Court of the United States, there can be no objection to your...
Treasury Department, August 13, 1794. “As great inconveniences have arisen from your discontinuing to endorse the name of your Office on your letters of a public nature; as heretofore directed I have to request, that you will in future be more punctual in conforming to a regulation so necessary to the dispatch of business in my Department.” LS , Rhode Island Historical Society, Providence;...
Treasury Department, June 19, 1794. “I am yet to reply to your letter of the 24th of April last, concerning a certain bond taken for securing the bonding of duties in another District. If no evidence has been since received the Bond ought to be put in suit. If any evidence has been received, other than the law directs, I request that it may be forwarded to the Treasury for consideration.” LS ,...
An application has been made to me on behalf of Messrs. Philip & Zach Allen of Providence for some document in lieu of a Register to authenticate their property in the Ship Abigail now in that Port and bound for the East Indies. It is represented that she is a French bottom which has been purchased by them since the commencement of the present war. My answer has been that sea-letters might be...
I have to reply to that part of your letter of the 31st. of March relating to certain vessels which escaped the Embargo. The question is whether an indictment generally will lie for disobeying the injunction of the law? This is the only mode of punishment if any exists. The Collector of Newport has been instructed to report these cases to the Attorney of the district in order that what shall...
I am informed by your letter of the 14th. instant of the decision of the Court in the case of Messrs Arnold & Dexter. I approve of your intention to take measures for an appeal to the proper Court of the United States. I could wish that you would request the District Attorney to forward to me the pleadings in the cause, and the reasons upon which the Court founded its decision. With great...
I have before me your letter of the 3rd inst stating instances in which the law relatively to an Embargo has been transgressed. It is true that no specific penalty is imposed in this particular case but the question is, whether the parties are not indictable generally, for violating a legal prohibition, in the District court. You will please to refer the case to the Attorney of the District...
Treasury Department, March 19, 1794. “I have to acknowlege the receipt of your letter of the 17th of last month. I approve of the employment of additional counsel in the suits of Messrs Arnold & Dexter.” LS , Rhode Island Historical Society, Providence; LC , RG 56, Letters to Collectors at Small Ports, “Set G,” National Archives; copy, RG 56, Letters to the Collector at Providence, National...
Treasury Department, November 7, 1793. “… It is of importance to the public service that the suit of Messrs Arnold & Dexter should be well and effectually defended. You will therefore engage such counsel as you can intirely confide in for the purpose.” LS , Rhode Island Historical Society, Providence; LC , RG 56, Letters to Collectors at Small Ports, “Set G,” National Archives; copy, RG 56,...
I have to reply to your letter of the 26th ultimo. I take it for granted the parties alluded to will not on reflection do what is expected; because it is not certain that they will find the judicial construction as favourable as that of the Treasury, with which it is a rule, in a doubtful case, to lean in favour of the Merchants and because also, they might be sensible that the most convenient...
Treasury Department, July 24, 1793. Acknowledges receipt of Olney’s letter “of the 26th ultimo” and states: “From the special circumstances growing out of a new law, I rather forbear to recommend the enforcement of Penalties in this case.” LS , Rhode Island Historical Society, Providence; copy, RG 56, Letters to the Collector at Providence, National Archives; LC , RG 56, Letters to Collectors...
[ Philadelphia, July 22, 1793. On August 7, 1793, Olney wrote to Hamilton : “I have received your Letters of the 22nd. 24th. and 27th of July.” Letter of July 22 not found. ]
Treasury Department, May 2, 1793. “Your letter of the 18th of April was duly received. The practice which obtains in your District with respect to Exportation permits … appears to me to be right.” LS , Rhode Island Historical Society, Providence.
Treasury Department, April 4, 1793. “Your letter of the 28th of February has been … received. The forms of oaths you allude to were transmitted from the Comptroller’s Office… on the 23rd Ultimo. A Circular letter from this, of the 29th of the same month … contains an answer to your other enquiry.” LS , Rhode Island Historical Society, Providence; copy, RG 56, Letters to the Collector at...
You will receive by this opportunity an official Letter. The present you will consider as a private and friendly one. You will readily believe me, when I assure you, that all my prepossessions are in your favour, and that if there have been any faults on your side, I am ready to ascribe them to the excesses of virtues and good qualities, rather than to their opposites . But you will, I am...
[ Philadelphia, April 2, 1793. On April 2, 1793, Hamilton wrote to Olney : “You will receive by this opportunity an official Letter.” Letter not found. ]
I have yet to reply to your letter of the 3d. ultimo, and to acknowledge with approbation the attention which you have paid to the subject communicated in my letter of the 22d. Octr. I do not clearly understand whether the Stock which was deposited with the Commissioner of Loans, remains still in pledge, or not. If it does, I request that it may be released, and restored to the Bank. With...
Your letter of the 15th instant has been duly received. Under the circumstances stated, I am pleased with the conduct which you have observed, in relation to the Brig Neptune, from Surinam. Should Mr. Arnold (as you say he threatens) commence a prosecution in the State Court, care must be taken so to conduct your defence as to admit of an appeal to the proper federal one. It will be of course...
Since mine to you of the 22d. I have reason to believe that the information which gave occasion to that letter was a misapprehension of the party from whom I received it; but whose general accuracy left me no suspicion of such a possibility at the time. I hasten to give this intimation, that no inconveniences may ensue from my first communication. With perfect esteem I have the honor to be  ...
A report has reached this place, through a channel so respectable as to claim notice, that the affairs of the Bank of Providence are in considerable disorder. On this occasion I take the liberty to commit to your care the interests of the United States and to request your aid. It is probably known to all of you that the Bank of Providence has been made a place of deposit for all the public...
In answer to your letter of the 4th instant I cannot but express my regret and disappointment, that you should have considered my letter of the 19th Ultimo as not sufficiently explicit to induce you to receive entries in case of collusive transfer. I have revised my letter, and to me it appears very explicit and very decisive. What more could I do, than give my opinion, that the appearances...
I am to acknowledge the receipt of your letter of the 18th of August last, relative to seven Puncheons of Foreign Spirits entered at the Custom House in Providence by Arnold Rhodes, Master of the Sloop Bacon from Washington in North Carolina. I have therefore to request, that you will concur with the Supervisor of Rhode Island (who has been instructed for that purpose by the Commissioner of...
The Attorney for the District of Massachusetts will prosecute in the case of the Sloop Polly of Sandwich, which, as I learn from your letter of the 18th Ultimo, was licensed at your Office. It is probable he will have occasion for the license bond, which I request you will forward to him upon his application. I am, Sir,   Your Obedt Servant. LS , Rhode Island Historical Society, Providence;...
I enclose you duplicate of my letter of the 19th instant, to which I refer you in answer to yours of the 13th. I shall only add, that it interests the merchants as much as the Public to discountenance such a species of evasion. For could it long succeed, it would render credits for the duties inadmissible. It will be well to let this idea get into circulation among the merchants. I am Sir Your...
I have considered the case which is stated in your letter of the 8th instant concerning Welcome Arnold. If appearances of the kind continue, I am of opinion that the presumption of a design to evade the law will be sufficiently strong to justify an Officer in refusing the credit. If an action should be brought against the Officer for such refusal, means must be taken to examine all the parties...
Treasury Department, September 13, 1792. “I have this day decided upon the case of Thomas Hazard junr. The interest of the United States and of all others in the forfeiture is remitted to him; and he is to pay fifty Dollars to parties, other than the United States, together with costs and charges.…” LS , Rhode Island Historical Society, Providence; copy, RG 56, Letters to Collectors at Small...
