Being engaged in making a comparative statement of the Trade between the U S & France & between the U S & G Britain; and being desirous of rendering it as candid as possible Mr. H will be obliged to Mr. Jefferson to point out to him the instances, in which the Regulations of France have made discriminations in favour of the U States, as...
I inclose you a warrant for 500 Dollars for Col Humphreys use; and shall for the present take arrangements for paying his salary or allowance by a Credit on our Commissioners in Holland. Hereafter we will endeavour to put this matter upon some more convenient footing. I draw in your favour to avoid introducing Col Humphreys into the books of the Treasury which would excite more conjecture than...

There are two funds out of which the expense you mention may be defrayed, one a sum originally of 10,000 Dollars, placed under the disposition of the President to defray the Contingent charges of government —another a sum of 5,000 Dollars appropriated at the last Session to satisfy demands liquidated and admitted at the Treasury for which there was no special appropriation. In this Case the...
During my absence from the seat of government, which will be for about two months, the removal of my office and other circumstances will call for advances of money which I am absolutely unable to calculate before hand.

Mr. Hamilton presents his respectful Compliments to The Secretary of State. He has perused with as much care and attention as time has permitted the draft of a letter in answer to that of Mr. Hammond of March 5th.

I have perused with attention your intended report to the President; and will, as I am sure is your wish, give you my opinion with frankness. As far as a summary examination enables me to judge, I agree in your interpretation of the Treaty. The exemption sought does not appear to be claimable as a right. But I am not equally well satisfied of the policy of granting it on the ground you...
I have taken the opinion of the Attorney General on the case of the St Domingo Vessels, mentioned in your letter of the 2d September last, which confirms that which I had before entertained, and on further reflection continue to entertain—namely that those vessels do not fall within the meaning of the 38th Section of the Collection Law respecting vessels that put into our Ports from distress...
I thank you for the printed papers you have been so obliging as to send. I cannot forbear a conjecture that the communications of the Chargé des affaires of France are rather expedients to improve a moment, in which it is perceived questions concerning navigation are to be discussed than the effects of serious instructions from his Court. Be this as it may I really have not thought of any...
Mr. Hamilton requests Mr. Jefferson to inform him whether he has received from Mr. Hamilton’s Office copies of the correspondence between Mr. Ternant & him concerning the advance of the 400.000 Dollars.

It is proposed that the words between should be omitted and those interlined inserted....
I regret extremely, that I did not receive your letter respecting Mr. Ternant’s application till two oClock yesterday; after a warrant had issued in his favour for the sum requested. Agreeing intirely in opinion with you, that all applications from Diplomatic characters, as well those relating to pecuniary matters as others, ought to be addressed to your Department—I should have taken no step...

In a conference with you, some time ago, I took occasion to mention the detention of the certificate of registry of a vessel of the United States in one of the French offices on occasion of a sale of the vessel. Several new instances having since occurred, I find it necessary to trouble you more particularly upon the subject. As the detention of these papers has taken place, as well in a port...
I am to acknowledge the receipt of an extract of a letter from you to Mr. Hammond of the 5th. of September 1793. As a preliminary however to the Instructions to be given to the Collectors, it will be necessary that you inform me, whether Mr. Hammond has assented to the proposed arrangement as well as the number and names of the prizes that come within the description. I have the Honor to be  ...
I have perused the papers communicated to you by the Chargé des Affaires of France. The propositions to which they relate, as far as they are understood, appear to me inadmissible. The only advantage they offer to the United States is a prolongation of the time of reimbursement. The rate of interest is to remain the same, and the place of payment, according to the probable course of exchange,...

In consequence of the application of Mr Andw. Ellicot, I have the honor to transmit you the official copy of the Survey of the tract of Land purchased by the State of Pennsylvania from the United States. As I conceive this as an original paper filed of record in this office in the Execution of an Act of the Legislature, I must ask the favor of your returning it to the Treasury as soon as you...
In consequence of the letter, which you sent me from Mr. Short, I find it will be convenient to draw on the Commissioners in Holland for the sum which is required pursuant to the third Section of the Act intitled “An Act making certain appropriations therein specified.” I therefore propose the following arrangement that the Treasurer draw bills, in your favour, for a sum in guilders equal to...

Major Rochefontaine has presented at the Treasury an authenticated copy of a Register Certificate in his favour, from which it appears, that the original has been deposited with Mr Delamotte, vice consul of the united States at Havre in France.

I enclose you an extract of a letter, lately received from the Collector of Bermuda hundred, concerning a certain practice, which if persisted in, would interfere with the due execution of the laws; and would oblige to a line of conduct, that would involve in difficulties the French bottoms, which arrive in the United States. To avoid both the one and the other, this communication is made, in...
