To Otho H. Williams
Treasury Department 8th. feby 1790.
I inclose you the extract of a letter from the Collector of the District of Chester.1
As I recollect nothing which authorises the practice he speaks of, I conclude there must be some misapprehension; but it is proper I should communicate the matter to you, and understand from you, what can have given rise to the representation.
I remain, Sir, Your obedt. Servt.
Otho H. Williams Esqr.
Collector for the port of Baltimore
