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. The following heads may give some idea what they will be. Dollars Sep. 30. for a quarter’s salaries 1504.16 “ Arrearage account about 325.   “ debts due here about 25.   “...
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 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...
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,...
It was the intention of the President that you and myself should take such measures as appeared to us eligible towards carrying into execution the Resolution empowering him to procure Artists from Europe towards the establishment of a mint. It appears to me of great importance, if still practicable, to acquire Mr. Droz, And the terms mentioned in the enclosed note when applied to so preeminent...
The letter you sent me from Mr. Short & others which I have received, since mine to you, confirm the view of the subject therein taken. This you will perceive from the following passages extracted from one of them—“Since then (speaking of former overtures) another Company has presented itself for the same object, with a scheme by which the United States are to make the sacrifices on which they...
The Secretary of the Treasury has the honor to inform the Secretary of State that there are in the bank of North America Bills at ten days sight for the sum of 32.175 Guilders, which the Cashier is directed to hold for him. A warrant is enclosed for the sum of 13000 dolls. in his favor, the money for which is intended to procure those bills for the purpose of obtaining a recognition of the...
It has occurred to me that it would be productive of very useful information if some Officer of the United States in each foreign Country, where there is one, were instructed to transmit, occasionally, a state of the coins of the Country specifying their respective standards weights, and values, and, periodically, a state of the market prices of gold and silver in coin and bullion, and of the...
The Secretary of the Treasury presents his respects to the Secretary of State. He returns the draft of Ratification with some alterations to conform more accurately to the fact which are submitted. The Secretary of State will recollect that there is another loan (the contract for which was also forwarded to him) concluded by Messrs. Willinks & Van Staphorsts & of which likewise a Ratification...
Mr. Hamilton presents his compliments to the Secretary of State. He would think the turn of expression on the whole safer, if instead of what follows the words “depreciated medium” the following was substituted—“and that in the final liquidation of the payments, which shall have been made, due regard will be had for an equitable allowance for the circumstance of depreciation.” JCHW John C....
