To Alexander Hamilton from Richard Harison, [9 October 1790]

From Richard Harison1

[New York, October 9, 1790]

The Question proposed to me by the Secretary of the Treasury respecting Loss sustained by Robbery from public Officers during the late War, has been maturely considered, and I am of Opinion that the Officers are not chargeable on that Account unless Negligence can be imputed to them.

9 Octr. 1790
