The remarks you propose to make upon the coasting law will be very acceptable, as the new bill stands postponed ‘till the next Session of Congress. I shall at all times wish for such observations as may occur to the Collectors on the Subject of the Revenue & Trade laws. I am of opinion that a consular certificate will not justify you, in paying a drawback. The Agents for Mr. Stephen Zacharie...

It is my wish that you make the Bank of Maryland, which is established in the Town of Baltimore the place of depositing the Cash belonging to the United States which may be from time to time in your hands as collector of the District of Baltimore.
