Alexander Hamilton Papers

From Alexander Hamilton to Jedediah Huntington, 24 November 1789

To Jedediah Huntington

Treasury Department Novr. 24th. 1789.


I acknowledge the receipt of your’s of the 11th. instant.1

The privileges allowed to Vessels under twenty Tons appear to me in the same light in which they do to you. I should be obliged by your ideas of the most proper arrangement with regard to that description of Vessels; as the thing is perhaps not without difficulties.

I have no doubt that the Importer must make entry, as well with regard to enumerated as non-enumerated articles.

I am, Sir,   Your Obedt. Servt.

A Hamilton
Secy of the Treasy

Jedidiah Huntington Esqr.
Collector of the Port of New-London.
