Alexander Hamilton Papers

To Alexander Hamilton from Sharp Delany, 25 May 1790

From Sharp Delany

[Philadelphia] May 25, 1790. Proposes that “the Office of the Inspector be at the Custom House.” Advocates “express directions for the Collection of the duties on home spirits and stills.” Proposes another “mode of prosecuting seizures … for as it stands at present … the Court receives all, and leaves no inducement to the Officers to be industriously attentive.”
