I have received your favor of the 4. instant; and shall alter the Circular on the currency, in the way which you suggest. The receipt of several additional reccommendations for the Loan Office in New-Hampshire, induces me to suspend an application for the Commission in favor of Mr. Plumer, until you have seen the doccuments now sent. I do not anticipate, however, a change in your instructions....
I send, for your consideration, Govr. Plumer’s recommendation of his Son, to succeed Mr. Gardner, whose resignation of the Loan oOffice in New-Hampshire, was forwarded a few days ago. Mr. Smith, the Marshal of New-York, is dead, and you will, I presume, be harrassed with applications for the Office. I am, Dr. Sir, most respectfully & faithfully, Yr. obed Serv. CSmH .

I have just received your favor of the 15t. instant, and, conforming to it, I shall cease to act in the Treasury, after the dispatch of tomorrow’s mail.

I shall resort to the testimonials of your approbation and confidence, for consolation, whenever the past reminds me of any Sacrafice to be lamented; or the future shall...
A Severe indisposition has confined me to my bed for three days. I am sufficiently recovered, however, to decide upon beginning my journey this afternoon, or tomorrow morning. I have left every thing here in order; and I shall continue, with great pleasure, to transact the business of the Department, until you are ready to relieve me. You will, of course, give me notice of a day, on which I am...
The Collectors Selection of a Site and buildings, for the New-York Custom House, is generally approved; and the price deemed moderate. The inclosed letter from Mr. Derbigny creates an apprehension, that the Subscription to the Bank has not been opened at New-Orleans. The Commissioners were named by the Louisiana members of Congress; and as Mr. Brown and Mr. Robertson are on the spot, I hope...
On my arrival at New-York, I was attacked with a fever; and although I saw Mr. Gallatin and Mr. Clay, I was not able to write to you: that they had, at last, reached the United States. I presume, however, that they have written to you themselves; and that by the hands of Mr. Cutts, you have received the commercial Treaty, with the correspondence relating to it. The Treaty does not contain any...
A convention of representatives from the Banks of New-York, Philadelphia, and Baltimore, decided yesterday, that they would recommend to their Constituents, the resumption of specie payments on the 1st. of July next. A Committee called upon me to communicate the decision. I remonstrated against so distant a day, and stated that there were two periods, designated by the measures of the...
An oppressive attention to the business of the court has prevented my making the inclosed draft earlier; and I send it now in a very rough state, rather than lose a mail for the purpose of copying it. I could not venture to fill the blank in the second page; but the figures will be supplied by the Register, upon a question: what will be the aggregate of the public funded debt after the...
