Enclosed is an extract of Captain Porters letter for your information. I am   Sir...
I received by the hands of Mr. Richmond your letter on the subject of the stock standing in your name on the public books.

I duly received your Communication of the 4th instant, concerning the difference which has been discovered between the instruments, used for ascertaining the proof of distilled spirits. The circumstance is very much to be regretted but I do not at present see that it admits of remedy as to the past. The impossibility of ascertaining what is right, is a great objection to restitution, even if I...
I am glad to learn from the letter of Mr Delozier of the 25th of July in-closed in yours of the 27th “That the difference between the Inspector of the Revenue and the Inspectors of the Customs had subsided, and that the latter were perfectly disposed to perform the services required of them, by the Secretary of the Treasury, whenever they may be directed by the Inspector of the Revenue.”...
