To Alexander Hamilton from Jeremiah Olney, 29 June 1790

From Jeremiah Olney

Providence, June 29, 1790. Asks Hamilton for the “forms of the several returns to be made from time to time.” Thinks that the surveyor should have a boat at Pawtucket to meet incoming ships. Asks for permission to purchase a set of scales and weights. Desires instructions on the collection of a tonnage duty which the state previously levied for defraying the cost of dredging the harbor.
