From Alexander Hamilton to Nathaniel Fosdick, 24 December 1790

To Nathaniel Fosdick1

Treasury Department,
December 24. 1790.

Sir:

It is to be presumed that the Collectors cause all goods which are reported for exportation to be reshipped under the care of an Inspector; and that he draws the allowance, per diem, during the time he is engaged in this duty. This I apprehend is the only charge which arises on the service of Inspection prior to and during the shipment.

I am, Sir, Your obedient Servant,

Alex. Hamilton.

Nathaniel F. Fosdick, Esquire,
Collector,
Portland.

Copy, RG 56, Letters to and from the Collector at Portland, National Archives; copy, RG 56, Letters to Collectors at Small Ports, “Set G,” National Archives.

1Fosdick was collector of customs at Portland and Falmouth, District of Maine.
