From Alexander Hamilton to Nathaniel Fosdick, 11 June 1790

To Nathaniel Fosdick

Treasury Department:
June 11th. 1790.


It appears to be a defect in our Laws, that the Registry of a Foreign Ship, sold after condemnation is not provided for. It will be laid before a Committee of the House of Representatives now sitting upon the alterations and amendments in which the Commercial and Revenue Laws require.

I am, Sir, with respect,   Your obedient Servant

Alex. Hamilton.

Nathaniel F. Fosdick,
Collector, Portland
